Philip Morris price target raised to $137 from $130 at Piper Jaffray

Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Lavery raised his price target for Philip Morris to $137 saying benefits from U.S. tax reform will allow the company to invest more easily in its iQOS platform. The analyst believes Philip Morris' underlying core cigarette earnings growth is "strong" and that incremental gains from iQOS is attractive. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.
