Pfizer stock tumbled below other pharma stocks on key metrics in 2019. Recent news has been upbeat with a drug approval and acquisitions. But is Pfizer stock a buy right now?
2019 was a great year for the stock market - one of the strongest years ever.Source: Shutterstock And typically, following that sort of performance, the next year is great too.So, while nothing is ever guaranteed when it comes to the market… the odds are pretty good 2020 will be another bullish year.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 2019 Winners That Will Be 2020 Losers But - and this is important to understand - we likely won't see that great performance in the exact same sectors…Semiconductor stocks were the top performers in 2019. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) gained 152%. Lam Research (NASDAQ:LRCX) popped 116% higher. Applied Materials (NASDAQ:AMAT) jumped 88%.But, it probably won't be the big winners of 2019 that lead the market higher this year.Instead, traders should look for the laggards to play catch-up.No doubt, 2019 was a momentum-driven market. Strong stocks got stronger throughout the year. Weak stocks got weaker. And, that trend accelerated in December as institutions and money managers engaged in the art of "window dressing."They bought more of the market's best-performing stocks so when they published their holdings at the end of the year, they could show investors they owned the markets best performers. And, they sold off the worst-performing stocks so they could show investors their limited exposure to bad performers.That action has created one of the widest valuation discrepancies between growth stocks and value stocks since 2000.You see, on a relative basis, growth stocks are historically expensive today… and value stocks are historically cheap.AMD, for example, trades at 44 times 2020 earnings estimates. That's quite richly valued compared to the S&P 500, which trades for about 18 times 2020 earnings estimates.Meanwhile, value stocks like Teva Pharmaceuticals (NYSE:TEVA), which trades at less than 4 times 2020 earnings estimates, are historically cheap.Granted… TEVA has its issues, and the outlook is cloudy. And, AMD is firing on all cylinders and the future is shining bright.But gosh… is AMD really worth ten times the earnings multiple of TEVA - or any other company that actually has earnings?My point is… the valuation gap between growth and value has expanded to a historically wide level. Growth stocks are trading for historically high valuations. Value stocks are historically cheap.If the broad stock market is going to continue higher in 2020, then it's going to be fueled by a "catch-up" rally in the value stocks. Traders should be looking for the undervalued and underappreciated names of 2019 to lead the market higher this year.Best regards and good trading,Jeff ClarkP.S. If you ask my friend and colleague Teeka Tiwari, there's another sector that should do very well in 2020…But, it's not in the stock market.Teeka says that by acting on this idea, you could potentially pay for your whole retirement after one specific day this year.If you're interested, just click right here and get the story straight from Teeka.

Teva (NYSE:TEVA) may be up over 60% from its 52-week low, but Teva stock is not out of the woods yet in terms of its headwinds.Source: JHVEPhoto / Shutterstock.com High debt, its exposure to the opioid crisis, as well as its current price-fixing scandal, offer investors a cocktail of risk. Certainly, the market has priced these risks into shares.Yet, valuation-wise, shares aren't exactly cheap. Despite these headwinds, shares trade at higher Enterprise Value/EBITDA ratio than generic drug peer Mylan N.V. (NASDAQ:MYL). So, what's the play with Teva Pharmaceuticals? With the recent run-up, it's clear the easy money's already been made.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsPositive developments could push shares higher. Short interest is not particularly high. On the other hand, upside looks like a challenge. Until TEVA can resolve both its debt and legal issues, expect the stock to stay in limbo. * 7 Stocks to Buy for January and Beyond A strong market could also be propping up Teva stock. With these factors in mind, let's dive in, and see why TEVA is a hot mess best avoided. Just When I Thought I Was Out…Last fall, opioid-exposed drug makers thought they had a solution to their legal liabilities. Teva Pharmaceuticals partnered with Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) and three other defendants to cut a deal with prosecutors across the country. In this deal, the company would only get a slap on the wrist: $250 million cash, along with $23 billion worth of opioid addiction-treatment drugs over 10 years.But state and local prosecutors said, "no dice." This settlement required sign-on en-masse from thousands of legal eagles. Very few seemed willing to settle. Despite the push-back, CEO Kare Schultz remained confident sign-off would happen by the end of 2019.But hindsight is 2020. Literally. This year, state and local attorneys general are going in for the kill. Federal prosecutors will join in as well. Teva Pharmaceuticals may have thought they were out, but prosecutors pulling them back in. And why not? The opioid crisis is red meat for attorneys general looking to make a name for themselves.Investors have deluded themselves into thinking the opioid crisis is priced into shares. Pay a little fine, give out some suboxone, everything's copacetic. But given how things are playing out, expect the worst until a new settlement proposal is on the table.But that's not all! Back in December, InvestorPlace's David Moadel broke down Teva's exposure to a generic drug price-fixing scandal. 44 states are going after Teva Pharmaceuticals and other generic producers. Their goal? To claw back billions that resulted from the collusion.There's no ballpark estimate for this liability. But the last thing Teva stock needs is another anvil over its head. Add in a high debt burden, and the company remains a minefield. Can TEVA Get Its House in Order?It's tough to quantify the legal liabilities hanging over Teva stock. But we can quantify their heavy debt burden. As of September 30, 2019, TEVA had around $27 billion in outstanding debt. In the short run, Teva may be okay in terms of refinancing or paying off debt coming due. Thanks to free cash flow generation, along with a recent refinancing, they have the funds to retire maturing debt.Analyst consensus does not project revenue or earnings growth over the next year. But if Teva Pharmaceuticals can hold steady, they could generate the cash flow necessary to continue whittling down outstanding debt.To move the needle, the company needs to bring cash flow back to prior levels. A small bump up in sales, along with continued cost reduction, could achieve this goal. Doing this will bring their head above water. With more cash to pay down debt and handle legal liabilities, Teva stock could skyrocket.Yet, at the current valuation, this upside could be priced into shares. As mentioned above, shares trade at a higher EV/EBITDA ratio (8.7) than peer Mylan (EV/EBITDA of 6.7). Both companies trade at similar non-GAAP price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios. Teva stock trades for 4.1 times forward earnings. Mylan trades for 4.7 times forward earnings.Once legal risks are mitigated, the company could even benefit from multiple expansion. The big pharma names trade at EBITDA multiples above 10. I don't see shares trading at a premium to these names, but the discount should tighten once investors are more confident in Teva's future. Take Your Time Before Buying TEVA StockThis year could make or break Teva stock. If the company can handle its debt load and settle legal liabilities for as little as possible, shares could skyrocket. Conversely, shares could fall back to prior levels (around $6/share) or less, if legal liabilities are greater than estimated.With shares rebounded, now may not be the time to enter Teva stock. Wait to see how upcoming opioid trials play out. If shares pull back to prior price levels, a buying opportunity may emerge. But for now, the risks do not match up with potential upside.As of this writing, Thomas Niel did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Low-priced pharmaceutical stocks are known troublemakers, and emblematic of the pharma niche is Teva (NYSE:TEVA). Over the course of its history, TEVA stock has taken shareholders on a ride from a few cents to the $70 level, only to retreat back below $10.Source: JHVEPhoto / Shutterstock.com However, a government crackdown on alleged opioid-dealing firms has cemented TEVA's reputation as an outlaw stock. But some folks persist in buying the shares and hoping for a recovery -- both in reputation and in price action.Just this year, traders have watched as Teva stock slid from $20 to less than half of that. So, given its unpredictability, are Teva Pharmaceuticals shares a prime dip-buy opportunity? Or are they just a slow-motion train wreck?InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips A Teva SubpoenaWhen I coach up-and-coming traders, one basic principle I tell them is to not fight the government. That's a battle you won't win.In other words: if there's a company on your watch list with government issues, pick a less worrisome candidate.First off, you've got the U.S. government's crackdown as federal authorities named a half-dozen opioid-dealing pharmaceutical companies in an investigation -- and of course, Teva's on the hit list. Emboldened by this, state and city governments following suit (literally) and initiating their own legal actions would not surprise me. * 7 Energy Stocks That Are Still Worth Buying In 2020 News of the federal probe sent TEVA stock shares tumbling nearly 8% in a single trading session, reminding traders that the government can and will smash errant pharma firms. And as the criminal probe drags on, public perception of Teva and other pharmaceutical companies will likely continue to suffer. A Price-fixing ImbroglioSticking to the "you can't battle the government and win" theme, we can now turn our attention to the far-reaching price-fixing scandal.At this point, 44 states suing 20 generic-drug manufacturers (including Teva, naturally) were named in what Connecticut Attorney General William Tong has dubbed "the largest cartel case in the history of the United States." And while 20 firms were identified, Teva has the starring role and the 524-page lawsuit reads like a tabloid:"The Defendants exploited their interactions at various and frequent industry trade shows, customer conferences and other similar events, to develop relationships and sow the seeds for their illegal agreements. These anticompetitive agreements are further refined and coordinated at regular 'industry dinners,' 'girls' nights out,' lunches, parties, golf outings, frequent telephone calls, e-mails and text messages."The damage to Teva is over, and it could take years before the company and its shareholders recover.And frankly, my sympathy for the company runs thin. Generic drug makers should help lower prices, not raise them, and Teva's illicit activity impacts all of us. Quoting the lawsuit again:"The anticompetitive conduct -- schemes to fix and maintain prices, allocate markets and otherwise thwart competition -- has caused, and continues to cause, significant harm to the United States healthcare system, which is ongoing."The lawsuit also notes that "Defendant Teva is a consistent participant in the conspiracies identified in this Complaint, but the conduct is pervasive and industry-wide," indicating a deep-rooted issue that merits federal-level intervention.Reform in this area would hopefully benefit the public, but could pose a potential problem for shareholders. Teva Stock? See ya!I won't go so far as to consider the company's legal issues an existential threat. However, they ought to deter any thoughtful investor from taking a long position in Teva stock. Maybe the share price will recover or maybe it won't. But until the company appeases regulators and restores its reputation, I'd say Teva is nothing but trouble.As of this writing, David Moadel did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
