07:05 EDTMOAltria Group raises FY15 adjusted EPS view to $2.76-$2.81, consensus $2.81
Altria raises its guidance for FY15 EPS, which excludes special items, to be in a range of $2.76-$2.81, which represents a growth rate of 7.5%-9.5% from an adjusted diluted EPS base of $2.57 in 2014. Altria expects its adjusted diluted EPS growth to moderate in the second half of 2015 versus the first-half rate due to several factors. These include lapping the effects of the 2014 improvements in the economy for adult tobacco consumers and lower gasoline prices, expected trade inventory movements and the effect of state excise tax increases. In addition, the comparative benefit from the expiration of the federal tobacco quota buy-out payments ends in the fourth quarter and Altria now estimates its FY15 effective tax rate on operations will be 35.3%.

14:09 EDTRAI, PM, MOAltria, Philip Morris could be ripe for recombination, Bloomberg says
The justification for splitting Altria (MO) and Philip Morris (PM) roughly seven years ago "no longer exists" and it may be time to look at a combination, reports Bloomberg Real M&A, noting that the two companies lag behind Reynolds American (RAI) after its recent acquisition of Lorillard. The report notes that the firms have already partnered on product developments in recent months, though a Philip Morris spokesperson told Bloomberg that "many of the reasons articulated by the board at the time of the spinoff are still relevant today."
