Cronos Group upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel

Stifel analyst Andrew Carter upgraded Cronos Group (CRON) to Buy from Hold with a price target of C$14.00, down from C$16.50. The analyst Cronos is "unconstrained" in its ability to invest towards a $200B global opportunity with C$2B in cash on hand the resources of Altria Group (MO), Carter tells investors in a research note titled "Crowning a New King in the North." The analyst believes Cronos will show an "enhanced revenue growth profile" that leverages the distribution capabilities of Altria to build its U.S. CBD business and demonstrate "break-through product potential" in the Canadian vapor segment. Given the company's "advantaged and enhanced position," investors should buy Cronos shares following their recent pullback, says Carter.

Cannabis consensus estimates still may be 30% too high, says BofA/Merrill
BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Christopher Carey thinks that valuations across the cannabis sector are looking more reasonable following the selloff since April, though he still believes consensus estimates for the group are likely at least 30% too high. Given this view, he is of the opinion that the true "buy" signal for the sector won't come until sales estimates are significantly recalibrated. Though individual companies could gain share, on an industry level, sales estimates are too high, contends Carey, who thinks the stocks in the group could remain volatile for some time. He prefers Cronos Group (CRON), which he thinks stands out "as an especially attractive buying opportunity" following the group's pullback, Carey tells investors. He keeps a Buy rating on Cronos, has Neutral ratings on Aurora Cannabis (ACB) and Canopy Growth (CGC) and maintains an Underperform rating on HEXO Corp (HEXO).

Roth says low enthusiasm for cannabis stocks doesn't reflect industry potential
Roth Capital analyst Scott Fortune noted that stocks in the cannabis sector have declined during the six months since the first quarter with the industry "mired in a capital crunch, with a vape crisis to make matters worse." However, he thinks the recently lower enthusiasm for cannabis stocks does not reflect the cannabis industry's prospects, as he still sees a lot of upside potential. A "meaningful shift" in investor focus to operational execution has led to a short-term correction in valuations, but the industry is still projected to grow at a 27% compound annual growth rate for the next three years, said Fortune, who advises that investors focus for now on companies with strong balance sheets and positive adjusted EBITDA who are nearing break even. Publicly traded companies in the cannabis space include Aphria (APHA), Aurora Cannabis (ACB), CannTrust Holdings (CNTTF), Canopy Growth (CGC), Cronos Group (CRON), Tilray (TLRY), and Trulieve Cannabis (TCNNF).

Hexo miss further damages cannabis industry credibility, says Stifel
Hexo (HEXO) this morning provided a preliminary update for its fiscal Q4 with revenue coming in below the consensus estimate and well below the "double" offered by management mid-quarter during the Q3 earnings call, Stifel analyst Andrew Carter tells investors in a research note. The preannouncement is "another headline damaging" the cannabis industry's credibility, Carter tells investors in a research note. For companies facing "significant financing risk," the analyst believes a "real segregation of assets will occur." Some companies will face significant dilution due to onerous financing terms while others will simply be unable to access capital, predicts the analyst. Carter thinks the macro environment will continue to be difficult and that the capital positions of Canopy Growth (CGC) and Cronos Group (CRON) are "clear competitive advantages." Those two have the ability to continue executing their business plans while capitalizing on the sector weakness, which "will only intensify from here," says Carter. Other names in the cannabis space include Aphria (APHA), Aurora Cannabis (ACB), CV Sciences (CVSI), CannTrust Holdings (CNTTF), General Cannabis (CANN), India Globalization Capital (IGC), Tilray (TLRY) and Zynerba (ZYNE). Shares of Hexo are down 24%, or 90c, to $2.78 in early trading.

BofA lowers cannabis stock price targets on further sales estimate changes
Following yesterday's rally in cannabis stock's driven by Aphria's (APHA) earnings, BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Christopher Carey said he doesn't see a case for sustainable upside yet until consensus estimates are cut further, which he thinks will ensue with the calendar Q3 results from the group. The reason that industry sales could be flat to down quarter-over-quarter sector-wide is that the cannabis industry is going from a period of inventory build to one of inventory "de-load," said Carey. Given his sales estimate revisions, he has lowered his price target on Aurora Cannabis (ACB) shares to $5 from $6, cut his Canopy Growth (CGC) price target to $23 from $27, trimmed his Cronos Group (CRON) target to $13 from $16 and decreased his Hexo (HEXO) target to $2 from $2.50. Carey keeps a Buy rating on Cronos, has Neutral ratings on Aurora and Canopy and maintains an Underperform rating on Hexo.

Philip Morris upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Lisa Lewandowski upgraded Philip Morris (PM) to Buy with a price target of $96 after the suspended merger discussions with Altria (MO) amid the heightened risk for U.S. vaping category following reports of lung health concerns. The analyst notes that the whole industry may be impacted by uncertainty around vaping, but she sees Philip Morris rising above the "noise" due to its lack of vaping exposure, strong underlying fundamentals, and potential for offering alternatives to vaping products.

Altria Group's competitive moat widens with iQOS, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog reiterates an Outperform rating on Altria Group following her private tour of the new iQOS store/formats that launched in Atlanta. The analyst says that her discussions with the company's management reinforced her belief that iQOS holds a distinct competitive advantage in the U.S. given it's the only RRP authorized by the FDA that will also be allowed to sell mint/menthol flavors in the event the FDA clears the market of non-tobacco flavor variants. While it is hard to say how long it could take others to win FDA authorization, given it took iQOS about two years, Herzog believes the FDA's standard is high. As such, she sees the removal of e-cigarette flavors only widening iQOS' competitive moat.

Argus backs Buy rating on Altria despite legislative pressure
Argus analyst David Coleman maintained a Buy rating and $60 price target on Altria Group. In a research note to investors, Coleman says that while Altria is facing pressure from legislative efforts to limit sales of e-vapor products in the wake of recent deaths associated with vaping devices, he believes that consumers will continue to view vaping products as a more acceptable nicotine delivery system than traditional cigarettes or chewing tobacco, and that the use of these products will continue to grow despite legislative restrictions. The analyst notes that Altria still derives most of its revenue from smokeable products, including brands like Marlboro, and that smokeless products accounted for just 12% of net revenue in Q2.
