    [$$] European Equities Market Talk Roundup

    The bank says it has “sensed a desire” from BAE to raise its self-funded research-and-development budget, possibly by about GBP100 million, partly to address near-term opportunities similar to the amphibious assault vehicle contract, which is potentially worth $1.2 billion. The catch is that such an increase in R&D will weigh on the company’s earnings growth and consequently BAE has been unwilling to commit to the expenditure, Jefferies says.

    BAT Hit by Heated-Tobacco Slowdown as Japan Growth Stalls

    British American Tobacco Plc said the rapid growth of tobacco-heating products in Japan has slowed, adding to doubts that the category can offset the decline in traditional cigarettes. Market share gains of BAT’s Glo device have stalled over the last seven weeks, after the tobacco-heating product hit a 4.3 percent share of Japan’s tobacco market during its first six months on sale, the London-based company said Tuesday. The outlook for next-generation products had become cloudier after Philip Morris International Inc. said in April that it was struggling to persuade older Japanese smokers to switch to its heated-tobacco device, iQOS.

    BAT forecasts earnings growth despite currency headwinds

    British American Tobacco (BATS.L) said on Tuesday it expects to weather a weaker pound and a slowing market for tobacco-heating devices in Japan to report "good" earnings growth for the full year. The world's second-biggest international tobacco company by revenue said that trading in the first half of the year was in line with expectations and that adjusted revenue and profit growth would be weighted to the second half. The maker of Lucky Strike and Dunhill cigarettes said "good adjusted constant currency EPS growth" was expected to be impacted by a significant currency translation effect of around 9 percent for the first half and 6 percent for the full year, at current spot rates.

    Japan Tobacco to cut heated tobacco prices in battle with Philip Morris

    Japan Tobacco Inc (2914.T) is set to slash prices on its heated tobacco products early next week after a similar move by bigger rival Philip Morris International Inc (PM.N), signalling increased competition in Japan's nascent market for alternative cigarettes. Japan, where regular e-cigarettes with nicotine-laced liquid are effectively banned, has become the main market for "heat not burn" (HNB) products which emit less smoke and smell less than conventional cigarettes. Tobacco makers initially struggled to keep up with strong demand as they began introducing HNB products in limited Japanese markets a few years ago.

    Pakistan diluted proposed tobacco health warnings after Philip Morris, BAT lobbying

    ISLAMABAD/NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Philip Morris International Inc and British American Tobacco Plc lobbied Pakistan's government to not implement bigger health warnings on cigarette packs, in what officials say was part of an industry-wide campaign that successfully persuaded Islamabad to water down a proposal designed to save lives. In Pakistan, where the government estimates tobacco kills more than 100,000 people a year, Philip Morris launched a lobbying campaign that included letters to and a meeting with the country's prime minister on blocking larger health warnings and controlling illicit trade of cigarettes.

    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.
