Big Pharma Big Yields

With the Roche (RHHBY.PK) acquisition of Genentech (DNA), investors are wondering if the big pharmaceutical companies are the medicine that their portfolios need. Especially if those companies have high yields. WallStreetNewsNetwork.com recently came out with its downloadable Excel database of High Yield Big Pharma stocks, more than half of which have yields over 4%. Here are a few examples:

Novartis AG (NVS) is the Swiss based healthcare products company, which has a PE ratio of 12, and yields 4.10%.

Merck & Co., Inc. (MRK) is the New Jersey based pharma that makes Singulair, Zocor, Propecia, Proscar, Gardasil and numerous other products. They have a PE ratio of 8, and yields 5.10%.

GlaxoSmithKline plc (GSK) is the British based pharmaceutical and consumer health-related products company, which sells Advair, Advair, Zofran, Valtrex, Flovent and many other pharmaceuticals, along with many over-the-counter products. They have a PE ratio of 14, and a yield of 5.60%.

To see a list of all the big pharmas and their yields which can be downloaded, sorted, and changed, go to wsnn.com.

The online pharmacy no prescription phrase works on two distinct planes; the internet and non prescription medication. But, we are fusing the phrase so that it means something and we can use the constituent parts of the phrase to create an idea. The concept of “online pharmacy no prescription” is designed for the purpose of providing medication over the internet (online) for all those people all over the world who are in dire need of suitable medication at reasonable prices, which is exactly the reason behind generic meds.
