    geneics vs new patent pharma

    Looking at how some big research based pharma is having to cut its work force to keep up its profits and p/e its easy to see that expensive research based new medicine is not doing well in this economic climate. One theory is that it takes a wealthy/affluent society to do the research and bring expensive new medicine to maket. On the other hand drugs coming off patent protection are going to be a boon for generics along with aging population and emerging markets where the populace can afford at least generic medicine. Having said all that it is a suprise that teva is not perfoming as well as one might have expected.

    Sentiment: Buy
