Pfizer holders should consider Zoetis exchange, says BMO Capital

BMO Capital thinks Pfizer (PFE) investors should consider participating in the Zoetis (ZTS) exchange as they have the opportunity to own Zoetis at around $29.40-$29.70 per share, which is 15% below BMO's valuation of $34 per share. Further, BMO thinks there is strong support for Zoetis below $30, which the firm feels lowers downside risk. BMO recommends that Pfizer investors tender around 20% of their shares into the exchange, noting that with the offer likely being oversubscribed, not all tendered shares will be converted to Zoetis.
