Not hot on pharmaceuticals because of generic manufacturing and litigation risks. This one is a pretty good choice in pharmaceuticals with a pretty good product line up going forward. A lower risk way to play pharmaceuticals is through Johnson & Johnson (JNJ-N) that has both pharmaceuticals and branded consumer products.
