Altria Group (MO) Q2 2019 earnings results

Revenue for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019, rose 5% year-over-year due to higher net revenues in the smokeable products segment. GAAP EPS increased 8% to $1.07, while non-GAAP EPS rose 9%.

Altria reaffirmed its full-year 2019 adjusted EPS guidance of $4.15 to $4.27, representing a growth rate of 4% to 7% from an adjusted EPS base of $3.99 in 2018.

The Richmond, Virginia-based firm now estimates full-year 2019 domestic cigarette industry volume to decline in a range of 5% to 6% compared to the prior estimated decline rate of 4% to 5%. This revision was due to increased adult smoker movement to the e-vapor category.
