Philip Morris offers cigarette tin ahead of packaging laws, the Independent says

Philip Morris, the maker of Marlboro cigarettes, has rolled out tin packaging for the cigarettes ahead of laws being implemented in the UK which require cigarettes to be sold in green packaging that is 65% covered with health warnings, the Independent reports. Members of Parliament and campaigners have accused the company of using the tin, which features the Marlboro logo but does not show any graphic images, as a way to sidestep the rules. Reference Link

Philip Morris likely to raise iQOS guidance, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo expects Philip Morris (PM) to announce on February 22 that it will file an FDA application to commercialize its iQOS smokeless cigarettes in the U.S. The firm predicts that the company will also raise its 2020 iQOS incremental profit target by $0.3B to $1.0-$1.5B. Wells sees a 70% chance of Philip Morris acquiring Altria Group (MO), and it says that such a deal could enable iQOs to obtain an additional $10B in operating income from iQOS by 2025. Wells keeps Outperform ratings on Philip Morris and Altria.

Citi says 'fairly unlikely' Philip Morris buys Altria Group
It is "fairly unlikely," although not impossible, that Philip Morris (PM) acquires Altria Group (MO), Citi analyst Adam Spielman tells investors in a research note. The analyst points out that according to Bloomberg, there is greater speculation that Altria Group will be bid for than for any other major company. Spielman does not believe Philip Morris buying Altria would generate adequate financial returns. He notes the takeover speculation is triggered by British American Tobacco's (BAT) decision to buy Reynolds American (RAI), the number two player in U.S. tobacco.
