    Altria August dividend trade alive despite U.S. nicotine proposal

    A U.S. proposal to slash nicotine levels in cigarettes may have smoked some investors out of Altria Group Inc (NYSE: MO - news) , whose Marlboro line is the top-selling U.S. brand, but long-term stockholders are staying put after decades of dividend hikes in August. Altria, informally known as "Big Mo" before its split from Phillip Morris International Inc in 2008, fell as much as 12 percent after the Federal Drug Administration on July 28 proposed cutting nicotine in cigarettes to "non-addictive" levels to encourage a shift to potentially less harmful e-cigarettes. Its shares are up 1.6 percent since the start of August, compared with a 0.4 percent gain in the benchmark S&P 500 index.
