Japan Tobacco (JAPAY) is seeing favorable earnings estimate revision activity and has a positive Zacks Earnings ESP heading into earnings season.
TOKYO (Reuters) -Japan Tobacco (JT) said on Thursday it was considering selling its Russian operations after suspending investment and marketing activities in the country last month following Moscow's invasion of Ukraine. The announcement by JT, market leader in Russia, came after it said in March it would continue manufacturing in the country, where it has four factories and 4,000 employees. That announcement drew criticism after many global brands pulled out over the invasion of Ukraine and governments, including Japan, levied heavy sanctions against Moscow.
The tobacco industry includes companies that grow, produce, and sell tobacco and related products such as cigarettes and e-cigarettes. The biggest tobacco companies include Philip Morris International Inc. and Altria Group Inc., both of which sell products with dominant brand names. The tobacco and nicotine market has a growing base of more than 1 billion users and tobacco contributes over $200 billion to government treasuries annually around the world, according to British American Tobacco (BAT), the global cigarette and tobacco giant.
