    Pfizer is a terrific pipeline drug conglomerate in the drug industry. They have the cash for continued substantial investment for future growth.

    This is a continuation of the PFE strategy to make the search for new medicines more efficient by investing in innovative research with smaller biotechs and rare diseases in dire need of new therapies. The in-house R&D continues to be slimmed down into centers of excellence around the world, with focus on the really big areas of greatest need including cancer, Alzheimer's, vaccines, etc. The spin-offs of the Nutrition and Animal Health businesses provided the cash to fuel this strategy being directed by Ian Read and his direct reports. This is the reason I remain long in PFE and committed to the future of this company's stock.
