and Altria are "all pretty good cash flow generators."
Gilmartin said they would definitely be "a flight-to-safety trade if the market declines 10%."
Link adds, "I think how you need to look at it is that there are always winners and losers (from a stock point of view) in every category, no matter what the macro implies -- whether it be superior size or scale, productivity measures, internal restructurings that help a company outperform on the bottom line despite the weak macro."
