    PFE Is Being Wipped Aroud Like A Ragdoll By Short Sellers..

    Pfizer has the second highest short poisition after CitiGroup. Short sellers are having a field day buying this stock between $15.90 and $16.25 and selling between $16.30 and $16.60.

    They know that PFE is going to have tough time crossing even $17 mark. The reasons being:

    They are taking a big debt to buy WYE. This causes a lot of anxiety in these uncertain times.
    They are paying the biggest freaking criminal penalty of $2.3B.
    They screwed their share holders by cutting the dividend in half.
    Scare of Lipitor drug patenting-off in 2011.
    PFE management gets no respect.

    PFE would had done much better buying high quality biotech/small pharma companies GENZ, GILD and OSI Pharma..all for $70B than buying WYE alone for 68B. The $70B represents a 25% premium over the current prices of GENZ, GILD and OSIP. Had they done that, PFE stock would be flying high in mid 20's today. They had the muscles to buy all three at the same time. All three have superb drugs and great earnings. Even buying just GENZ and/or GILD would had been much better.Instead, they went after WYE and screwed their share holders royally.
