17:53 EDTLOWorries persist on Reynolds-Lorillard deal getting FTC approval, WSJ says
Shareholders are expected to approve the combination of tobacco companies Reynolds-American (RAI) and Lorillard (LO) this week but the real concern for the deal that will result in a formidable competitor to rival Marlboro maker and market leader Altria Group (MO) is whether the FTC approves of the deal, says the Wall Street Journal. British American Tobacco (BTI), which owns 42% of Reynolds, agreed to vote for the deal which will make the third party to the deal, Imperial Tobacco Group (ITYBY), the No. 3 player in the U.S.,as Imperial agreed to pay $7B for Reynolds’ Winston, Salem and Kool brands and Lorillard’s Maverick cigarette and Blu e-cigarette brands, added the Wall Street Journal report.

09:37 EDTFDODollar Tree says Family Dollar merger could close as soon as March
Dollar Tree (DLTR) commented on the outcome of the shareholder vote of Family Dollar Stores (FDO) to approve the pending merger with Dollar Tree. It said, "Today’s vote of approval by Family Dollar shareholders represents a crucial step toward combining Dollar Tree, North America’s leading fixed-price point discount retailer, with Family Dollar, a leading multi-price point retailer with a 50+ year history of serving low and middle income customers By adding Family Dollar to our portfolio of brands, Dollar Tree will soon operate more than 13,000 stores in 48 states and five Canadian provinces with annual sales exceeding $18 billion. This merger enhances our geographic footprint and diversifies our business model. We intend to operate and grow both banners." Dollar Tree added that "several steps" need to take place to facilitate the successful completion of the acquisition. By the end of January, Dollar Tree expects to reach a preliminary agreement with the FTC staff on the list of substantially all of the stores to be divested. Dollar Tree then plans to finalize divestiture agreements with the selected buyers, to address any concerns of the investigating state attorneys general, and to execute a consent order with the FTC’s Bureau of Competition. Dollar Tree and Family Dollar have agreed to provide the FTC with four weeks’ notice prior to closing. Dollar Tree expects to initiate this four-week notice period after Dollar Tree executes a consent decree with the FTC’s Bureau of Competition, which should enable the closing of the merger as soon as March 2015.

07:21 EDTLOWells Fargo calls Tobacco 'place to be,' upgrades Altria Group
Wells Fargo calls the U.S. Tobacco sector the "place to be" in consumer staples in 2015. Wells lists positive catalysts for the group as stronger pricing power, protection from currency risk and upside potential from e-cigarettes. The firm says Reynolds American (RAI) remains its top pick and it raised its price target range for shares to $79-$81 from $69-$71. Wells upgraded Altria Group (MO) to Outperform from Market Perform with an increased price target range of $56-$58. The firm also has an Outperform rating on Lorillard (LO). Wells has a "high conviction" that Reynolds' deal with Lorillard will be approved by the FTC in March or April.
