Gotta like the dividend on both sides of the split.
Whether you are interested in growth stock or steady income the management has unlocked shareholder value by this strategy. Keep them both and watch them grow !!!! The yield has doubled on Friday !!!!! Put that in your pipe and when the investing public finally understands the benefit buying will increase.
On what do you predict ABBV as a growth stock? It is essentially a single-product pharma, and the time line for discovery and development of new products is 10-20 years. Blockbuster pharma products are becoming quite rare. The only way for ABBV to be a growth stock is for it to grow its profits. How do you see that happening?
