Altria Group tightens FY18 adjusted EPS view $3.95-$4.03, consensus $4.00

Altria tightens its guidance for 2018 full-year adjusted diluted EPS to be in a range of $3.95 to $4.03, representing a growth rate of 16.5% to 19% from an adjusted diluted EPS base of $3.39 in 2017 as shown in Schedule 10. This guidance range excludes the special items for the first nine months of 2018 shown in Table 1. Altria's 2018 guidance reflects investments in focus areas for long-term growth, including innovative product development and launches, regulatory science, brand equity, retail fixtures and future retail concepts. Altria expects its 2018 full-year adjusted effective tax rate will be in a range of approximately 23% to 24%.

Morgan Stanley sees potential for 5%-8% move in Altria on FDA E-cig PMTA call
Morgan Stanley analyst Pamela Kaufman keeps her Equal Weight rating and $63 price target on Altria Group but assigns a base case 70% chance to the possibility of the FDA moving up its E-cig PMTA deadline from 2022 to 2019 and starts a process to ban online sales. In this event, the analyst sees potential for the stock price to rise 5%-8%. The analyst also assigns a 25% chance than the FDA will maintain the deadline, in which case she sees shares moving down by 5%-8%.

Altria can post attractive double-digit earnings growth, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Lavery believes pricing, tax savings and the management of spending can drive Altria Group's earnings growth to double-digits over the next three years, above the company's long-term 7%-9% growth target. The analyst considers this growth attractive, "especially with its 5.5% dividend yield." Lavery trimmed his Q3 cigarette volume decline estimate to down 5.5% and 2018 earnings per estimate to $3.95 from $3.97 to align with retail trends. He keeps an Overweight rating on Altria Group with a $75 price target.
