    What will PFE's profit margin be once absurdly high


    margin Lipitor goes away?

    Instead of current 37%, PFE's should drop to around industry average of 17% (MRK's & WYE's are under 21%, JNJ's less than 19%, SGP 14%, LLY under 13%, BMY 9% & ABT's below 8%).

    If anyone has a better estimate, I'd like to hear it.

    So if PFE's post-Lipitor sales are $40 B (an optimistic long shot), its earnings would be under $8 B in this case, so that even if PFE keeps buying back shares, EPS comes in at $1.33.
