Once again, have any of these ham and eggers EVER disclosed their respective Form 8949 to their current subscribers?
Does anyone who boasts how they "beat the house" at their favored gaming establishment on their last visit ever disclose what they 'left at the house " during prior visits?
Is the World Wrestling Entertainment COO John Paul Levesque (known on television otherwise as HHH) truly a man who has truly earned the number one ranking competing in athletic competition in the engagement in the sport of wrestling on 14 different occasions or is all just a role being played on some long running dramatic series?
Me thinks USA is just another such as professional wrestler ala "Hacksaw Jim Duggan" running around in tights with a 2 by 4 screaming "USA. USA" Just another actor (and in Duggan's case a rather marginal actor/wrestler/entertainer at best) reading from some canned script.
Time is money. That’s why instead of sitting around on yahoo finance you should join UltimateStockAlerts(google them). They alert small cap stocks (no pennies) and thus far I have not had a losing trade with them.
not for tax avoidance. but for cheap valuation..
That will increase PFE sales by 20%. Buy VRX for 20-25B (stock deal or half cash /stock deal)
Much much better than get diluted by AGN (40% dilution)
I hope the Board saw that increase in share holder value today! Thats what should happen when an attempt to grow thru acquisition is crushed!
Time for PFE to stop its growth thru acquisition #$%$ & get back to being the 800lb gorilla of R&D that it used to be!!!
Are you seeing this continuous upward trend to $35-$40 or are you expecting it to gradually get there over the course of the year?
Shareholders didn't want the AZN merger or the AGN deal. Execs going on an agenda that didn't serve the shareholders pressed on until they were stopped by outside forces. What is the motive for execs to continue trying to do deals the shareholders don't want, that ultimately hurt the company? Maybe they all talk to themselves in the boardroom instead of listening to the shareholders. Maybe they are just so arrogant they don't care what the shareholders think. Maybe they are just focused on their deal bonuses and stock options. Or perhaps they are gaming the system on stock trades. Don't know; just wondering.
What are you talking about"use taxpayer funds to develop drugs"? No they don't. Where did you get that idea?
Secondly the revenue is generated abroad from products made in facilities in other countries. Taxes are paid to those countries and then if the company tries to repatriate the money to the US they have to pay US taxes and they don't get reimbursed for taxes paid to these other countries. Only the US does this.
Your lack of understanding of the drug development process is breathtaking. I worked in drug discovery and drug development for three major pharmaceutical companies, and I can state with confidence that there are no "taxpayer funds" involved in the process. In a start-up pharma, which has no revenues, the process is funded by the initial investors. Once a company has revenues, discovery and development is funded out of revenues. US pharma companies have no problem with paying US taxes, but they would like to have US taxes comparable to those of other 1st world countries, so that their competitors would not have the unfair advantage of lower tax rates. And, for what it's worth, if the tax burden were lower, US pharma could invest more in research and development, and increase dividends to shareholders.
If what you say is true, it must have been AGN who had the problem, or they would have asked for more $ from PFE as a break-up fee.
The week before, there was an announcement that there would be a closer look at the "fit" of the two companies' product lines. Seems to me that between last week and yesterday, one of the companies got cold feet over potentially having to sell off some products. Just a thought. Or, one of the companies was looking for a way out.
