Growth and Income
Altria Group
With the domestic tobacco market in steady decline, Altria is looking abroad to recapture its growth streak. The international wing of Philip Morris now accounts for three-fifths of the company's global tobacco sales, which ties its fortunes closely to the dollar's strength. Even with litigation looming over its head, it's still a smooth-running profit machine, with $12 billion in net income last year.

After the Kraft spinoff, Altria will be able to focus exclusively on its rich tobacco assets. The company also expects to launch a profitable new menthol brand, Marlboro Smooth, this year.
