Philip Morris hits streets to sell older smokers on new devices, Bloomberg says

Philip Morris is moving a large majority of its 1,000-employee sales force in Japan to the streets in an effort to target elderly smokers with direct appeals, free handouts, and money-back guarantees, Bloomberg reports. The company is trying to sell to an older generation its next-generation iQos smoking device, the report notes. "We needed messaging that will work for the elderly, and meeting them and explaining the product has been most effective," Japan sales director Haruki Kato said in an interview in Tokyo. "We think doing face-to-face can get the older smokers to buy the product." Reference Link

Jefferies downgrades Philip Morris, Altria Group to Hold from Buy
Jefferies analyst Owen Bennett downgraded both Philip Morris (PM) and Altria Group (MO) to Hold from Buy. The analyst lowered his lowered his price target on the former to $80 from $93 and on the latter to $61 from $70. For Philip Morris, the analyst sees significant share loss in Japan heated in the second half of 2018 and believes its longer-term total tobacco volumes will pressured due to greater skew to vapor. For Altria Group, Bennett believes market share pressures should pick up again the second half of 2018. Further, he sees the company at a disadvantage in vapor due to available formats and believes concerns around the delay of an IQOS approval will likely weigh on the shares. The analyst reiterates a Buy rating on shares of British American Tobacco (BTI).

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. L Brands (LB) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Kimberly Greenberger saying the Victoria's Secret turnaround is taking longer than anticipated and she now sees greater risk to 2019 estimates. 2. Hormel Foods (HRL) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays with analyst Benjamin Theurer saying he is taking a more neutral view on the shares citing the supply/demand imbalance in the pork business, uncertainty in the international segment from trade tariffs, and the "sluggish performance" of its other businesses. 3. Cummins (CMI) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Ann Duignan saying with demand for trucks in China slowing, and lingering investor concerns over a peaking truck cycle in North America, she sees downside risks for the shares. 4. Secureworks (SCWX) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS WITH analyst Fatima Boolani citing valuation. 5. Altria Group (MO) and Philip Morris (PM) were downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies.

Tobacco stocks to rally on PM USA price increase, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog says Altria Group (MO) and Philip Morris (PM) just announced a "healthy and slightly higher than expected" wholesale list price increase on all of its cigarette brands, including Marlboro The analyst learned from industry contacts that PM USA took a cigarette list price increase of 10c per pack or $1.00 per carton on Marlboro, L&M, and B&H Menthol, 15c per pack on Parliament and Virginia Slims, and 50c per pack on everything else. The 10c per pack increase on Marlboro is slightly higher than the 9c per pack increase Altria took on Marlboro in March 2018, reflecting the company's "significant pricing power," Herzog tells investors in a research note. The analyst expects British American Tobacco (BTI), Reynolds and ITG Brands will follow Altria's lead and increase prices in the next few days, but possibly not as robust of an increase. She expects Tobacco stocks will react favorably to this list price increase and reiterates an Overweight rating on the sector and Outperform rating on Altria Group.Fargo
