Originally I failed to include that PFE paid $1.16 in dividends for 2007 versus only $0.96 slated to be paid in 2013. One could argue that 2007 PFE prices reflected a slated $1.28 to be paid in 2008. It was not until mid-2009 that PFE cut its dividend in order to stave off paying U.S. corporate income tax on re-patriated foreign earnings.
I fully expect lower PFE prices but obviously no plugs being pulled like today. Today was like a Viagra recall.
