Marlboro Friday

April 2, 1993. On this day, Philip Morris, the cigarette maker, told the market it would cut its prices to compete with generic brands. This marked part of a larger movement in the market away from consumer loyalty to brand name cigarettes. Philip Morris lost about a quarter of its share price and $10 billion in market capitalization on this day.
