E Daily Stock Pick: Pfizer Inc

This week, I'm looking for the third healthcare sector representative of six for my Ivy portfolio.

That healthcare sector includes ten industries all related to testing, diagnosing and treating what ails us. Healthcare industries are: biotechnology; diagnostics & research; drug manufacturers - major and - specialty & generic; healthcare plans; long-term care facilities; medical care; medical devices; medical distribution; medical supplies.

Today I'm reviewing another large-cap drug manufacturer - major named Pfizer. Its trading ticker symbol is PFE.

Pfizer is one of the world's largest pharmaceutical firms, with annual sales of over $50 billion. Pfizer also spends a leading amount on research and development, close to $8 billion annually. While Pfizer historically sold many types of healthcare products and chemicals, now, prescription drugs and vaccines account for the majority of sales. Top sellers include pneumococcal vaccine Prevnar 13, neuroscience drug Lyrica, cancer drug Ibrance, cardiovascular treatment Eliquis, and immunology drugs Enbrel and Xeljanz. Pfizer sells these products globally, with international sales representing close to 50% of its total sales.

Pfizer Inc. has a strategic alliance with Ochsner Health System; a development agreement with Antares Pharma, Inc.; and a collaboration agreement with Aileron Therapeutics, Inc. It also has collaboration and/or co-promotion agreements with Bristol-Myers Squibb Company; Astellas Pharma US, Inc.; Merck KGaA; Immunicum AB (publ); Immutep Limited; BioNTech AG; Neofluidics, LLC; Kite Pharma, Inc.; Leap Therapeutics, Inc.; Nektar Therapeutics; Zenith Epigenetics Ltd., and Kineta Immuno-Oncology, LLC.

The company was founded in 1849 and is headquartered in New York, New York.

I use three key data points to gauge the value of any dividend equity-like Pfizer Inc:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

Besides those three, several other keys will finally unlock an equity or fund in which to invest.
