10k in PFE stock in 1997 is 10k in 2007.Good thing fully funded retirement is at age 55for many. No stock market risk.
All depends on where your stock cost price is at! We probably haven't seen the bottom yet! That 4.7% could reach 6.0%, untill the board decides to lower the dividend. Next year this could be a $10.00 stock!!!
Right! After Johnson and Johnson and last years earnings etc PFE has about 26 Billion in Cash. Figure out the number of shares and how much cash each share represents.Today it was announced that a Company got FDA approval to use its Kidney Drug for Humans. The Stock is up 6%.PFE has a sub license for it.PFE either owns or is in Partnership with others.Meanwhile your 5 shares will make no difference one way or the other.
