After spending $87M promoting Lipitor in the U.S. even after its patent expired, Pfizer (PFE) is giving up on its former cash cow for good because more generic versions will soon be going on sale. For its next act, PFE is trying to reshape itself into a leaner company, but analysts say it might still be too big for the cost-cutting and launches of new drugs like tofacitinib to have a significant effect.

    when Pfizer was taken over by the bureacrats it was the beginning of the decline. The current managers don't understand pharmaceutical sciences. The pharmacy schools have watered down the curriculum so that you can't go to grad school directly because the present curriclum has to many holes in it. Things will only get worse.
