12:00 EDTLO, RAI, PM, MO, CVSCVS plans to stop selling cigarettes and other tobacco products
CVS Caremark (CVS) earlier today announced its decision to cease selling tobacco at all locations starting October 1. WHAT'S NOTABLE: CVS Caremark said its choice to exit the tobacco category does not affect the company's 2014 segment operating profit guidance, 2014 earnings per share guidance, or the company's five-year financial projections. The company estimates that it will lose approximately $2B in revenues on an annual basis from the tobacco shopper, equating to approximately 17c per share. Given the anticipated timing for implementation of this change, the impact to 2014 earnings per share is expected to be in the range of 6c-9c per share. The company has identified incremental opportunities that are expected to offset the profitability impact, CVS added. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Deutsche Bank believes CVS Caremark's decision to stop selling tobacco products is in-line with its strategy to become more of a healthcare services company. Deutsche thinks the move could improve CVS' competitive positioning and it keeps a Hold rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: During late morning trading, shares of CVS Caremark were down 1.5% to trade near $65. Like the broader S&P 500, shares of a number of tobacco product makers were generally lower. Philip Morris (PM) fell 0.88% to $76.20, Reynolds American (RAI) fell 0.7% to $47.17, Lorillard (LO) fell 2.5% to $47.64 and Altria Group (MO) fell 1.2% to $34.02.
