    Tobacco Shares Lower on FDA's Proposed Ban on Menthol Cigarettes

    Shares of major tobacco producers took a hit Thursday, Nov. 15, on news the Food and Drug Administration was planning a ban on flavored cigars and menthol in cigars and cigarettes, and to prevent minors from buying flavored e-cigarettes. The FDA formally announced the plans -- which are intended to curb smoking among kids and teens -- Thursday in a letter by commissioner Scott Gottlieb. "Today, we advance our efforts to combat youth access and appeal with a policy framework that firmly and directly addresses the core of the epidemic - flavors," wrote Gottlieb.

    FDA chief pushes to ban menthol cigarettes, restrict many flavored e-cigarettes

    U.S. Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb announced on Thursday plans to ban menthol in products like cigarettes and cigars and restrict the sale of many types of flavored electronic nicotine systems like e-cigarettes in order to prevent youth use. The news sent shares of tobacco companies, many of whom also make electronic systems, down. Gottlieb also proposed banning flavored cigars "to ensure that we're taking a comprehensive approach," he said. Use of e-cigarettes has become extremely popular in recent years among young people; the products are safer than e-cigarettes but do contain addictive nicotine and bear other health concerns. The FDA chief has been warning about youth use of e-cigarettes for some time, and previously forecasted the agency's plans to take additional steps in November. But Gottlieb also said on Thursday that "if the policy changes that we have outlined don't reverse this epidemic, and if the manufacturers don't do their part to help advance this cause, I'll explore additional actions." The new policy, should it be finalized, would only allow the sale of flavored electronic nicotine systems in "age-restricted, in-person locations and, if sold online, under heightened practices for age verification," according to the FDA statement, and would not apply to tobacco, mint and menthol flavors and non-flavored products. British American Tobacco shares dropped 2.3% on Thursday, Altria Group shares dropped 1.3% and Philip Morris shares slumped 0.5%.

Sales of Juul’s vaporizers and flavored nicotine liquids have surged over the past year, fueled in part by the product’s popularity among teenagers and children.
