Here are some sample widgets you could interact with from this dashboard:
Philip Morris is slated to release its Q4 and full-year 2019 results on February 06, 2020. For FY2019, Trefis estimates that the company will report:
Revenues of $30 billion (vs. consensus estimate of $29.9 billion), which would be 1.4% higher than 2018, primarily due to strong growth in the heated tobacco segment, partially offset by lower cigarette volume soldEPS of $5.21 (vs. consensus estimate of $5.20), which would be 2.5% higher than $5.09 reported in 2018, due to higher revenue, with expenses increasing at a lower rate, thus pushing net income margin higher
We believe that better-than-expected revenues and earnings for FY2019, will likely result in Philip Morris' stock price rising once earnings are announced. In fact, our forecast indicates that Philip Morris Valuation is $93 a share, which is roughly 8% above its current price of $86.
