The sector "has been driven by income investors [and] Q2 earnings look tough in this context," Jefferies says, in a note on Big Pharma. Analyst Jeffrey Holford likes Novartis (NVS -0.1%), Sanofi (SNY -1.2%), Roche (RHHBY.OB +0.4%), Abbott (ABT -0.1%), AbbVie (ABBV +1.5%), and Bayer (BAYZF.PK +2.3%), and takes a more cautious approach on Bristol-Myers (BMY -0.8%) and Pfizer (PFE -0.7%).

    That is nothing but a lazy analyst who doesn't want to do homework on individual companies and doesn't understand that pharma valuations are driven by one thing and one thing only -- pipelines.

     

    According to AARP, Pfizer will do $3 billion Lipitor sales in 2015. That sounds more like a modest slope than the fatal "cliff" the shorts (and lazy analysts) have been claiming since 60% ago.
