Nicotine study could pressure tobacco stocks, says Wells Fargo
Dr. Dorothy Hatsukami's 1,250 patient, 20 week Phase III study, which suggested an immediate reduction in nicotine levels by the FDA would be more effective than a gradual reduction in terms of discouraging compensatory behavior, could create near-term headline risk for tobacco stocks, Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog tells investors in an intraday research note after XXII Century Group announced the results. Investors may worry the data could precipitate sharper declines in combustible cigarette volumes, the analyst contends. She continues to believe, however, that such an outcome would only accelerate conversion to reduced-risk products such as iQOS, which she notes does not appear to have been a part of the study. Publicly traded companies in the tobacco space include Altria Group (MO), British American Tobacco (BTI) and Philip Morris (PM).

Great Plains Energy upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Sarah Akers upgraded both Great Plains Energy (GXP) and Westar Energy (WR) to Outperform saying the merger has a high likelihood of regulatory approval. The analyst believes the shares are "modestly undervalued" and sees further upside potential should Altria Group (MO) and/or KapStone (KS) become "more supportive of new investments over time." Akers has a $33 price target for Great Plains shares.

Wells Fargo recommends buying Altria Group ahead of catalysts
Wells Fargo notes that Altria Group's stock has pulled back sharply since the FDA's announcement and has remained pressured given concerns about Marlboro share softness and volume trends. The firm says its valuation is now at a 2-year low, reflecting minimal credit for potential U.S. corporate tax reform which could lower the top rate to 25%, increased leverage and stepped up buybacks, U.S. commercialization of iQOS as soon as February 2018, and/or further industry consolidation. Wells Fargo urges long-term investors to build positions and believes the risk/reward is favorable ahead of the company's Q3 results.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Discovery (DISCA) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at UBS with analyst Doug Mitchelson saying the risk/reward is balanced with the shares down 22% year-to-date. 2. Altria Group (MO) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen with analyst Vivien Azer citing its notable pullback following the late July FDA announcement and a bigger than expected price increase which reinforces the durability of its earnings growth. 3. L Brands (LB) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities with analyst Daniela Nedialkova saying recent Victoria Secret visits are highly encouraging with a number of changes that should drive a positive inflection in comps over the next several months. 4. Boston Beer (SAM) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Laurent Grandet saying the market sentiment remains "overly negative," which creates a more balanced spread between upside and downside scenarios. 5. British American Tobacco (BTI) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen with analyst Vivien Azer saying she views the weakness from FDA risk and foreign exchange movements as having created an attractive entry point. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
