What Pfizer's Upgrade Means For Mutual Fund Investors (PFE)

Shauna O'Brien Mar 23, 2015

Inside the Upgrade

The firm has raised its 2015 EPS estimates from $2.07 to $2.08. FY2016 EPS estimates were increased from $2.21 to $2.30.

The analyst commented: “We expect PFE shares to significantly appreciate over the next 1-2 years based on a better than expected launch of Ibrance, greater appreciation of the durable growth on offer in GEP, further accretive and potentially tax-driven M&A, and the separation of GEP by 2017 at a minimum from the rest of the business.”

Growth and Income

The stock has grown at a steady rate over the last few years and has a dividend yield of about 3.2%. Pfizer stock is perhaps most ideal for income-focused investors that are planning on holding the stock over the long-haul.
