Cigarette data from Nielsen 'dire,' industry data also 'very bad,' says Citi
Citi analyst Adam Spielman noted that Nielsen reported earlier today that cigarette industry volumes fell 11.2% in the four weeks ended May 18, noting that shares of Altria (MO), British American Tobacco (BTI) and Imperial (IMBBY) all fell following the "dire" data. Volumes in MSAi, the industry database that he regards as much more reliable than Nielsen, were down 6.4% in the same period, which Spielman said "is still a very bad figure, but it is a lot, lot better than the Nielsen one." Looking ahead, the analyst said he expects "gradually less bad" volumes in Nielsen in the rest of the year, though he noted that Altria has said it expects industry volumes to fall about 4%-5% this year and he forecasts a decline of about 6%. In late afternoon trading, Altria shares are down 4.5%, British American has declined over 4% and Philip Morris (PM) is down 5%.

Former FDA head sees difficulty in JUUL getting PMTA approval, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Vivien Azer wrote in a note titled "Gottlieb: Out of FDA, Not Out of Opinions" that former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb commented that he believes it will be difficult for JUUL to get PMTA approval, which has put vapor exposed stocks under pressure. Azer said that Altria (MO) has direct exposure as it has a 35% stake in JUUL, and Greenlane Holdings (GNLN) also has exposure as JUUL accounted for 36% of its sales in 2018. However, the analyst noted that JUUL is "already grand-fathered into the market today, given it was marketed prior to August 2016." Also, JUUL has been "among the most proactive participants in the market, having gone further than the FDA has contemplated in terms of addressing youth access." Azer has a Market Perform rating on Altria, and an Outperform rating on Greenlane.

Tobacco stocks to react favorably to Altria cigarette price increase, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Lee Herzog says she just learned from her industry contacts that Altria Group/Philip Morris USA took a "surprise" cigarette list price increase that will be effective with shipments on or after June 16, several months earlier than Altria's typical practice of raising cigarette list prices every six months. Further, the analyst also learned from her retailer contacts that Altria has reduced certain promo allowances on some of its brands starting in July. Given the continued pressure on cigarette volumes, Herzog thinks this is a key reason Altria is being more aggressive with pricing in effort to offset volume declines/protect margins, and wouldn't be surprised if it took another increase in the fall or later this year. Overall, the analyst expects tobacco stocks will react favorably to this list price increase. She reiterates an Overweight rating on the tobacco sector and on Altria's stock.

Cronos Group initiated with a Hold at Stifel
Stifel analyst W. Andrew Carter started Cronos Group with a Hold rating and C$18 price target. While the analyst sees Cronos as well positioned to compete in the Canadian adult-use market, he sees some potential downside given the "unbridled enthusiasm that has taken hold" following the investment by Altria (MO).
