    Pfe's Nutrional and Animal Health

    How high profit do you think the infant formula business is compared with branded drugs? It's positively amazing that this unit can fetch five times revenues when Pfizer as a whole with its high-margin drugs goes for less than three times revenues.

    Last year's infant nutritionals revenues of $2.24B only amounted to 3.3% of total company revenues and yet the unit is being peddled for 7% of the company's $170B market cap.

    • I hope that Pfizer spins off the animal health division to present PFE shareholders rather than selling the company outright, like they just did with the infant nutritional division. I would like the almost 12 billion dollars to be used to increase the dividend payment to shareholders. I am always skeptical of share buybacks, as it seems like the individual shareholder very rarely sees any tangible benefits of this tactic.
