first Quarter Earnings Announcement Expected: The next earnings date is expected on 04/25/2013. With 10 analysts covering LO, the consensus EPS estimate is $0.64, and the high and low estimates are $0.67 and $0.62, respectively
I think the estimate is low. All the experts who had these calculations did not factor in the buy back. The high end is $0.67 so I am calling for a 3 cent beat at $0.67 and would not be shocked at $0.70!
