1-year outlook They've had a very good year like all pharmas, even in an election year. Pays a great yield and trades at a low multiple. Driving this are their COVID-19 vaccine efforts. They recently did a deal that puts them in MNRA which allows the fast-tracking of developing vaccines. This whole sector will continue to do well. The FDA has loosened rules to fast-track a COVID drug which he expects will lead to an effective result.

A big player in vaccines and a top-10 pharma company in the world. The stock hasn't done much in the last 5 years, because drugs have come off patent. They're now the biggest consumer healthcare business in the world; they will spin off this company in two years. Pay a 5% yield that should rise this year. Vaccines and asthma meds will drive sales. (Analysts’ price target is $50.10)

He was concerned that GSK was getting more growth focused. They spun off their consumer products with Novartis, giving up their oncology department. Now they have a joint venture with Pfizer. Having it as a longterm asset is probably positive.

He owns this right now, though they are facing competition in the space. He likes their HIV franchise that continues to do well. They also have a solid franchise in respiratory. They are shifting to a more growth focused model.

The cost of bringing a new drug to market hasn't changed, but the customer base has shrunk. Same costs, smaller revenue base. He likes healthcare for being recession-resistant, but he prefers a medical device company like Stryker.

Bristol Myers's latest drugs haven't done as well as they thought. GSK has refocused into pharmaceuticals, and they sold off the consumer products division. After 5 years, they have both come to be around the same price. He would prefer GSK.

Has pound risk, if there is a hard Brexit. The company is fine, and has a dividend yield of around 5%. Must look at whether they have a strong pipeline of drugs coming to market in the next 5 years. Would rather go with Roche or Bristol Myers instead.

The whole drug sector is under pressure, because every country is managing costs, including America. It's a cash flow industry struggling to maintain growth. Revenues are flatlining. But it's a defensive sector with solid, growing dividends, so he's reluctant to sell them.

Large cap, diversified. Long life assets. They need to find growth and acquisitions. Healthy distribution. Analysts question the dividend. Low growth profile. A strong hold, but be cognizant that they need to buy companies to fill out the pipeline and keep up the dividend growth.

TEVA vs. GSK Teva is in turnaround with a lot of debt to pay off. They need a boast from their future products moving forward. GSK is higher quality with higher credit rating, and lack Teva's debt woes. GSK is the better bet.

Very frustrating. He likes their long-life assets and consumer health business (consistent cash flows). They have some pipeline. Acqusitions surprised him--in 2016, GSK swapped their oncology assets for vaccine assets of Novartis. Then, they spun out their consumer businesses into a joint venture. It was bizarre they purchased oncology; is it accretive? He thinks they bought it to see where else they can extract value. They paid a hefty premium to buy Tessaro. GSK pays a large dividend and has a strong balance sheet, so good income.

He likes the volume recently, but expects resistance at $42. He was disappointed that the recent rally didn’t go higher. It has a good yield and looks like a Canadian bank where volatility is not too high. He would use $38.50 as a stop and would like to see it test $42 as an upper breakout target to buy more. Yield 5.2%.

Don't add to your holdings, just hold. Wait till June when the second generic test of a new drug gets passed by the FDA. They have a great HIV franchise. Their capital plans are really interesting, because they may buy Pfizer's consumer division, while Novartis has a sell option to sell back to GSK an earlier swap deal. They are focusing on consumer products. Dividend yield over 6%.

The pharma industry in the late-90s came out with social drugs like viagra, so the market awarded pharma big growth multiples. But then, these stocks came off. Problem is they were never really growth stocks and now the drug industry isn't coming out with new blockbuster drugs. GSK is developing vaccines, which is fine, but overall, he can't see the previous massive expansion in this space. Currently, the multiples are fair for pharma companies. There's also pricing pressure on drugs in the U.S. as we saw during the 2016 election.

Sales of $7.8 billion was up 2%, which doesn't do a lot for his interest. EPS was 49%. You are getting no top line growth or bottom line growth. A lot of their products have been on the market for a long time. They are trying to switch into a new HIV product, but has competition that has been doing it for a long time.
