I agree the press is always manipulating these stocks for a headline along with the computer traders of the hedge funds .... they jumped short here for quick dollars at the expense of long term holders . Read the Alpha report and you can see 2014 is going to pick up the earnings PFE was off and more - next year . Accounting policy from the spinoff and currency prices caused most the issues leading to a 1 penny miss and a fractional revenue shortfall . Truly todays call was bullish and this drop should and will be used as a entry / add point for many funds as this stock continues on its long term upwards run to par . Wait a few days because momentum switches slowly but I would consider adding after that . The dividend here is sound and this talk about it not being sustainable is BS . PFE has years of room to raise the dividend and the share buybacks they are proposing are very large and meaningful . Management here is becoming very effective in delineating where the money is coming from in each part of their intertwined businesses and increasing efficiency to promote a return to growth as they downsize . Fear of another long term downtrend will cause some to sell wrongly during the improving period for this stock where accumulation should be the proper path as the gains of the past few years and accounting shortfall are digested .
