    Has Altria’s Stock Price Bottomed Out?

    At the end of May 21, Altria Group (MO) was trading at $55.64, a decline of 22.1% from the beginning of this year. In Q1 2018, the company had posted adjusted EPS (earnings per share) of $0.91 on net revenues of $4.7 billion. Analysts were expecting EPS of $0.80 on revenues of $4.8 billion. Although Altria outperformed analysts’ EPS estimate, the stock price of the company declined due to a dip in cigarette shipment volumes of 4.2%. Also, the uncertainty surrounding the long-term potential of Philip Morris International’s iQOS has made investors skeptical about Altria’s future earnings.

    Staples: Not Cheap Enough to Buy?

    Consumer staples has been the worst performing sector this year, falling 13% year-to-date, even as the S&P 500 has gained 1.5% overall.

    Will Rising Core Inflation Lead to Steeper Rate Hikes?

    With core inflation at 1.8%, it is likely that inflation achieves a “two-handle” (2%) soon, and rather than risk falling behind the curve, the Fed might tighten more aggressively. A February report by HSBC economist Stephen King identified all periods since 1990 in which the world economy has delivered synchronized growth.

Let’s start with staples, because folks who buy these stocks, which are often considered the pinnacle of safety, are setting themselves up for brutal returns—and even serious losses—as interest rates rise. First, look at yields: as I write, the Consumer Staples Select SPDR ETF pays 2.98%—practically the same as the 3.0% yield on the 10-year Treasury Note.
