Abbott Laboratories Message Board

  • joetong419 joetong419 Mar 11, 2013 6:31 PM Flag

    ABT spinoff ABBV...

    each day ABBV jumps all over the place - a day trader's delight.
    ABBV doesn't have their own message board - is it because stock is too new?
    Only positive to hold is the healthy dividend.
    With only 2 blockbuster drugs high risk/high reward.

    • Why only 2?
      Look at AbbVie Product Line!
      I work in Health Care and know that those drugs have been used extensively on daily basis.

      Aluvia (lopinavir/ritonavir)
      Calcijex (calcitriol injection)
      Cardizem LA (diltiazem HCI tablets)
      Ephedrine Sulfate
      Gengraf (cyclosporine oral solution, USP [MODIFIED] )
      HUMIRA (adalimumab)
      Kaletra (lopinavir/ritonavir)
      K-Tab (potassium chloride extended-release tablets, USP)
      Lupron Depot (leuprolide acetate for depot suspension)
      Nimbex (cisatracurium besylate)
      Norvir (ritonavir)
      Sevorane (sevoflurane)
      Ultane (sevoflurane)
      Survanta (beractant)
      Synagis (palivizumab)
      Ultiva (remifentanil hydrochloride)
      Vicodin (hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen tablets, USP)
      Vicoprofen (hydrocodone bitartrate and ibuprofen tablets)

      Sentiment: Buy

    • ABT up ABV down,,,,,,ABV up ABT down,,,ABT up ABV down,,,ABV up ABT down,,,,,every trade day the same same thing. Very seldom if ever both are up or both are down on the same day. Strange

      • As someone who did quite well holding ABT pre spinoff I listened to the experts and sold my ABBV and purchased additional shares of ABT. I currently own 10,000 shares of ABT and 100 in the money calls. Even though I have a small profit I'm kind of disappointed as to how ABT has lagged the market. I guess we have to hope for good earnings inorder for this stock to outperform.

    • I noticed today that a message board has been added for ABBV.

    • ABBV has only one drug that qualifies as a "blockbuster," HUMIRA, which accounts for about 45% of its total sales. The stock has been more variable than ABT, but it's hardly a high volatility holding. Since the day it hit the market, it has traded within a +/- range of about 2%, usually much less than that. As for it not having a message board, I would reverse the question and ask why any stock has a message board. They serve primarily as a place to post unrelated advertisements, misinformation, and questions by people too lazy to do their own search. ABBV is high risk and low-moderate reward - in my unqualified opinion.
