    Has Altria’s Stock Price Bottomed Out?

    At the end of May 21, Altria Group (MO) was trading at $55.64, a decline of 22.1% from the beginning of this year. In Q1 2018, the company had posted adjusted EPS (earnings per share) of $0.91 on net revenues of $4.7 billion. Analysts were expecting EPS of $0.80 on revenues of $4.8 billion. Although Altria outperformed analysts’ EPS estimate, the stock price of the company declined due to a dip in cigarette shipment volumes of 4.2%. Also, the uncertainty surrounding the long-term potential of Philip Morris International’s iQOS has made investors skeptical about Altria’s future earnings.

    Dutch insurer NN Group to quit tobacco holdings

    Dutch insurer NN Group (NN.AS) will no longer invest in the tobacco industry and said on Thursday it aims to divest all tobacco-related holdings on its own accounts and in the funds of its asset manager within a year. NN's step follows similar moves by BNP Paribas Asset Management and insurers AXA (AXAF.PA), Aviva (AV.L) and Scor (SCOR.PA), who all decided to sell out of the industry because of the health, social and environmental costs linked to tobacco. "Tobacco no longer fits with our responsible investment approach", NN Chief Investment Officer Jelle van der Giessen said.

    Many young people are missing something important about popular e-cigarette Juul

    A slim, USB-chargeable e-cigarette that comes in flavors like “crème brulée” and “cool cucumber,” the Juul has quickly become one of the most popular such products among teens and young adults. While experts, parents and teachers say they’re worried about the trend, young adults may be missing one of the crucial reasons why, a new study published in the peer-reviewed journal Tobacco Control has found. Only a minority of young people who were familiar with or had recently used the Juul knew that it contains the addictive stimulant nicotine, according to the study.
