Monday, Apr 302012, 5:20 AMPure pharmaceuticals players, like AstraZeneca (AZN), Bristol-Myers (BMY) and Eli Lilly (LLY), are likely to face higher earnings pressure over the next three years than more-diversified firms like J&J (JNJ) or Bayer (BAYRY.PK), says Fitch. Cash-rich pure-players with a relatively weak R&D pipeline, like AZN, may be tempted to go on buying sprees. |Monday, Apr 302012, 5:20 AM| Comment!
Tuesday, Apr 32012, 10:04 AMPush comes to shove as pricey life-saving cancer drugs run up against government austerity programs and private payers unwilling to share costs for drugs that run as high as $100K a year. While Big Pharma argues that advanced technology will save money on the development side, companies such as PFE, BMY, RHHBY, and BAYRY.PK run the risk of seeing reduced profits with government-mandated price cuts for their most expensive drugs. |Tuesday, Apr 32012, 10:04 AM| 4 Comments

Wednesday, Jan 182012, 12:01 PMResearch from Frost & Sullivan breathes some life into the potential for generic drug makers with its new projections that the global market for generics could tip the scales at $231B in 2017 - repping an annual growth rate of close to 10%. The biggest drivers for the stellar growth should be blockbuster drugs that fall off their patents and the "huge potential" for copycat drug sales in emerging markets such as China, India, and Brazil. |Wednesday, Jan 182012, 12:01 PM| Comment!
Friday, Jan 132012, 1:35 PMAffymax (AFFY -0.3%) CEO John Orwin says the days of biotech companies seeing their share price bid up on potential is over, as investors wait it out to see if firms hash out issues with reimbursements, regulatory hurdles, and safety concerns. "There was a time when products got full value prior to launch. I think we have now swung back in the other direction." |Friday, Jan 132012, 1:35 PM| Comment!
Tuesday, Dec 272011, 2:54 PMReuters' John Wasik identifies health care as a sector that will grow in 2012 on the strength of a long-term demographic trend that is pushing up demand for medical services, devices, and pharmaceuticals. He argues that while big pharma ETFs could see a gain, a focus on generic pharmaceutical names looks to be an even better bet as governments and companies look to cut costs.

Tuesday, Dec 272011, 5:25 AMIt could be a very tough year for pharmaceutical firms, which face a slew of patent expiries and new costs from healthcare reforms. Market research firm CreditSights pegs Bristol-Myers (BMY) and Eli Lilly (LLY) as likely to be next year's hardest-hit pharmas, while Abbott (ABT) and J&J (JNJ) will remain relatively sheltered. |Tuesday, Dec 272011, 5:25 AM| Comment!
Wednesday, Dec 142011, 7:50 AMFitch is establishing a negative 2012 outlook for pharmaceutical companies, arguing soft demand, patent expirations, and government spending cuts will take a toll on the industry; the patent expirations (I, II, III) are seen affecting LLY, BMY, and PFE the most. Fitch also sees pharmas responding to these challenges by stepping up their M&A activity. |Wednesday, Dec 142011, 7:50 AM| Comment!
Tuesday, Dec 62011, 12:48 PMSanford Bernstein analyst Tim Anderson's take on Eli Lilly (LLY +3.3%) offers a surprisingly candid view on the roulette-like risks involved in betting on drug company stocks with his estimate that LLY could clear $9B in sales of solanezumab by 2020 or misfire completely with its investment. Anderson on the sector: "Eli Lilly and several of its competitors are willing to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on what is essentially a massive lottery ticket." |Tuesday, Dec 62011, 12:48 PM| Comment!
