Altria

Shares of Altria hit a 52-week high on Tuesday of $33.36. The stock's 52-week low of $23.20 was set on Aug. 9.

"Depending on the success of Marlboro Eighty-Threes we could image an expansion of the idea and package design into Silver and Gold as well," Jefferies analysts wrote in a report Monday. "Gold is the largest segment for the Marlboro franchise and a modernization of the pack design might further improve the positioning of this sub-brand as well."
