HOLD. This stock's P/E ratio indicates a discount compared to an average of 21.47 for the Tobacco industry and a discount compared to the S&P 500 average of 21.18.

After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, PHILIP MORRIS INTERNATIONAL proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
