    he other drug on the government’s radar was created by scientists at Pfizer, adapted from a molecule initially designed in the early 2000s as a potential drug for SARS. That drug had sat on the shelf for years, but last spring, the scientists decided to modify its structure so that it would work against the new coronavirus’s protease. More than 200 Pfizer researchers joined forces on the effort on the molecule, known for now as PF-07321332.

    The drug had been designed to be taken intravenously, but the Pfizer researchers succeeded in altering its structure to work as a pill. When mice were given the drug orally, it reached high enough levels in the body to block the coronavirus. Pfizer launched a clinical trial in March to study its safety in people, and expects to move to later-stage testing next month.

    Dr. Kessler acknowledged that there will be challenges in using such pills to drive down hospitalizations and deaths from Covid-19. People will need to gain access to the drugs as soon as they test positive. “Your testing programs are going to have to be linked to your treatment,” he said.

    And if the history of antiviral research is any guide, the first drugs for Covid-19 will probably only offer modest benefit against the disease, Dr. Fauci said. But that would be a good start.

    “With all of these drugs that we’ve dealt with over the years, we’ve never hit a home run the first time at bat,” Dr. Fauci said. “A line drive off the left-field wall to start would be really good.”

    The government will also spend up to $1.2 billion on research centers where scientists will carry out early-stage studies on drugs that block the coronavirus in other ways. Some drugs may interfere with other essential viral proteins, while others may make it impossible to copy the virus’s genes.

    Under the current management, Pfizer has no intention of ever buying back any shares. On the contrary, in 2020 they issued 31 million new shares to management. That was in a pandemic year, just imagine how many shares they will be issuing this year given the revenue rise from the vaccine. They will want to reward themselves for the higher numbers. The share float will keep going up and up, diluting existing shareholders even further. Next stop, 6 billion shares.
    No wonder this dog stock never goes up……..

    Ceo goals for PFE are coincide with the big institutions...institude buy back only when PFE dropping to near $25 and then put out another news to pump up the price back to $30plus so this way the big institution can back money.

    There are more Covid19 vaccine data due to come out from about half of dozen companies and my estimates are around half of it will have the same efficacy as Pfe and Moderna.
    This will reduce the sales for Pfe, Moderna, JNJ, and Azn.
    Just imagine what Pfe share price be in a couple of months

    What is happening with this stock? A world leader in production of vaccines, impeccable earnings record and continued optimism about current and future sales of it's products - nothing makes this stock move. Who is holding the strings and why? Its puzzling to say the least!

    From 2020 annual report.
    “No shares were repurchased in 2020 and to date in 2021…..”
    “Fourth quarter 2020 diluted weighted average shares outstanding was 5662 million shares, an increase of 31 million shares compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to shares issued for employee compensation programs.”

    It is illegal to cover something from the investors. The regulations upon listing in public is favoring the investors interest. It looks like pfizer is hiding something from all the investors. Moderna, biontech more than double. Income generated pfizer is by far even the highest. Then why is it the prize is like a price of lilipop it is 1/12 of the prize must be. I demand pfizer to explain this as an investor.

    When you least expect it, Pfe will go to the stratosphere. Everyone is scratching their heads why with $26 billion vaccine revenue on top of the usual $48 billion, the stock does not go up? Manipulated and controlled because retail investors expect it to go up. It isn't the retailer investors that move stocks; the institutions with their multimillion share trades that trigger rallies. After their expectations are unmet and retailers are sold out, that is when the institutional buyings will come up, running up fast. The retailers will then come in later, chasing the peaks.

    This game has been played over and over.....with different companies, year after year. Pfe has every technical reasons to go to $60 and beyond. Just hold it out, it may take years, but it will double.
    Bullish
