Judge orders FDA to set 10-month deadline for e-cig applications, Reuters says

U.S. Judge Paul Grimm has ordered the FDA to impose a 10-month deadline for the submission of e-cigarette applications, Reuters reports. Last month, the FDA proposed a shorter timeline after the U.S. District Court for Maryland determined in a lawsuit filed by anti-tobacco groups that the agency had exceeded its authority in letting e-cigarettes remain on the market until 20200 before companies applied for regulatory approval, the report notes. "I will impose a ten-month deadline for submissions and a one-year deadline for approval, as the FDA suggested," Grimm said in a court order. Publicly traded companies in the tobacco space include Altria Group (MO), British American Tobacco (BTI) and Philip Morris (PM). Reference Link

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Target (TGT) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Christopher Horvers saying he believes the shares are undervalued and he sees potential upside to consensus estimates. 2. Philip Morris (PM) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Barclays with analyst Gaurav Jain saying unlike British American Tobacco (BTI), Philip Morris' Canadian subsidiary value is more than the value of the liability. 3. Booking Holdings (BKNG) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi saying Booking's valuation, following the stock's underperformance this year, now better reflects the business slowdown it faces and is attractive on a cash flow basis. 4. Vertex (VRTX) assumed with a Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Salveen Richter saying he believes the likely approval of the triple combination regimen in 2020 will extend Vertex's cystic fibrosis opportunity to ~90% of the market. 5. Ferrari (RACE) upgraded to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

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%.

Herzog reiterates an Outperform rating and $100 price target on the shares.

Barclays analyst Gaurav Jain upgraded Philip Morris to Equal Weight from Underweight and raised his price target for the shares to $82 from $67. Unlike British American Tobacco (BTI), Philip Morris' Canadian subsidiary value is more than the value of the liability, Jain tells investors in a research note. The analyst expects Philip Morris will continue to trade at a premium valuation to peers given its higher exposure to reduced risk products, higher return on invested capital, better management and stronger brands.

Morgan Stanley (MS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi. 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.
