Haunting...Loyalty...??? How long have you been in the market? Theres no room for loyalty we are here to make money!! PFE has to turn up the heat. I owned MRK then sold the day before the 1st judgement. Transfered to PFE because they had better product and cash flow. I'm sure they will turn it around and hoping they can do it by the end of the year..Thats all. If they don't I will move my money at that time and put it elsewhere. So just chill and let us make our opinions on the board.
i don't think you understood my point. there shouldn't be any loyalty - except to yourself. also, i was saying that if you don't feel like you have a good deal here, then leave. you said something about mrk giving a better div... so go there. why not? i'm in it for the long haul, and actually i have been in the market for 25 years. the 90's was a nice ride, and we will see that kind of ride again, which is why i strongly believe PFE to be an excellent buy and a rock bottom price. no, i can't give you numbers. but i believe in my position. you are certainly entitled to yours. just don't come on this board and whine about mrk having a better dividend. of course, doing so is FAR better than moaning about politics as so many do... so... for that, I am thankful to you.
