    • Tobacco stocks slump as a group after Lorillard doesn't catch the premium in the Reynolds American buyout that some anticipated.
    • Even Imperial Tobacco which ended up with the hot Blu e-cigarette brand as part of the deal is having trouble shaking off the pessimism.
    • Decliners: Lorillard (NYSE:LO) -7.9%, Philip Morris (NYSE:PM) -1.3%, Altria (NYSE:MO) -2.1%, Vector Group (NYSE:VGR) -0.8%, Reynolds American (NYSE:RAI) -4.0%, Imperial Tobacco (OTCMKTS:ITYBY) -2.8%, British American Tobacco (NYSEMKT:BTI) -1.4%.

    • Shares of Lorillard (LO -5.5%) retreat after reality sets in that a deal for the company to be purchased by Reynolds American (RAI -1.8%) is complicated and could take some time to work out. The third wheel in the merger mix is British American Tobacco (BTI -0.9%) which owns 42% of Reynolds and could make a play for the whole company after a standstill agreement expires in July.
    • Analysis is divided on if a deal will end up being completed at all. Stifel thinks regulators will jump in over the dominance in menthol a combination of the tobacco companies would create - while Wells Fargo's read is much more optimistic.
    • Vector Group (VGR -1.6%) has been taken for a ride along with Lorillard and Reynolds, popping yesterday and deflating today.

    Tobacco stocks trade lower as higher Treasury yields are taking just a bit of the shine off the group as a good dividend income play. Decliners: Altra (MO) -2.1%, Reynold American (RAI) -2.2%, Lorillard (LO) -2%; Vector Group (VGR) -1.7%, Philip Morris (MO) -1.8%, British American Tobacco -2.3%.
