Shares of Altria Group, the nation's largest tobacco company, fell Thursday after the company's earnings missed expectations on lower cigarette revenue and big expenses aimed at diversifying its business. Altria, the maker of Marlboro cigarettes and Copenhagen chew, has been working to shift its business away from traditional tobacco products amid steady declines in the category. Quarterly results were weighed down by $159 million in pretax expenses mainly tied to Altria's investments in Canadian cannabis investment firm Cronos and Juul, the e-cigarette startup company.
The stock was falling 6.40% to $51.20 a share in premarket trading. "As expected, Altria's first quarter adjusted diluted EPS declined in the mid-single digit range as we incurred higher interest expense as a result of our recently issued debt, without the full benefit of savings from our cost reduction program, which began to ramp up at the end of the quarter," said Howard Willard, Altria's chairman and CEO. Analysts at CFRA lowered their price target to $52 a share from $58, now representing about 1.5% upside.
