After two years of under-performance shares of Novartis (NVS) could be poised for gains going into next year, according to Barron's. The report cites a promising pipeline of drugs, a 4% dividend and a below-market multiple, all of which should pay off handsomely over the near-term. Additionally, nearly 30% of the company's sales come from drugs that have come to market just since 2007, which Barron's attributes to the company's continued heavy investment into R&D, and is another element that adds to the stock's long-term attractiveness.

    Haven't seen the article but it should also mention .... they OWN a very significant portion of ROCHE. This is a VERY dynamic company that will prosper for a long time.

    Besides a flourishing branded prescripiton drug business, being a conglomerate, the value of the different business embedded in this structure is not appreciated by the street. This article clearly brings out the value of NVS
