“While we must admit that we are surprised by the outperformance of PMI year-to-date (YTD) versus the overall group following its strength in 2011, we believe the momentum should continue for the year,” Davenport analysts wrote in a March 26 report. “The overall tobacco group has underperformed the S&P 500 Index YTD, but PMI has clearly outperformed the tobacco group. We are raising our rating to a Buy and initiating our 12 month price target of $100, based on our new 2013 EPS of $5.90. We focus on three key reasons: consistency, a relatively benign tax environment and attractive yield.”
