The European Cigarette Industry Is Getting Slammed By The Euro Crisis

Conventional wisdom would suggest that smoking is a business that’s immune to economic downturns.  Some might argue that smoking might actually rise during periods of economic distress.

PMI sells Philip Morris cigarette brands like Marlboro, Parliament, and Chesterfield outside of the U.S.

Below are two slides from the presentation PMI management gave when they released their earnings announcement.
