How low PFE after 2008 guidance lowered? $23, $22, $21 or
You are so densely dumb!
All that buying bac k shares in one fell swoop does is pop the EPS one year. In future, it's a huge drag, compared to buying a pipeline.
What part of "growth" don't you understand? PFE can't grow sales on its own. That's its whole problem. Management & analysts have to live in the real world, not your fantasy realm in which revenue grows automatically, willy nilly.
For PFE it hasn't & it won't. Even in years with fewer patent losses, PFE hasn't shown that it can grow sales, & the future promises to be even worse, much worse, whether Hillary wins or not.
Since your entire retirement is riding on it, try, really, really hard, just once in your miserable, useless existence, to contact reality.
