Pfizer reached its all time high on April 9th, 1999 -- 48.6(actually 145.8 pre-split). I believe that was just before the Warner-Lambert acquisition. After that, it has been sliding for ever -- to as low as low teens (12?)during financial crisis of 2008.
Will Pfizer get back to its former glory days, and reach new all time highs? Only time will tell.
Why is short interest so high on this stock, when it has such a seemingly attractive investment profile?

Cheating, are you still buying ogxi? What about cytk? What do you think? It is at 7 now.
They really need to cut the costs in a big way. Chevron as usual is sitting on their behinds and making small incremental moves on job reduction. They need to move agressively, start an early retirement program, cut all the marginal projects. If the oil prices continue like this for the rest of the year, they will be toast. They will be forced to cut the dividend.
Dividend is certainly in jeopardy. They need at least $70 oil to operate without cutting dividends. They need to cut their payroll aggressively. They have a huge white lephant called Gorgon that is gobbling up cash. Second quarter results will be ugly. They have to wake up NOW!
