    Hi,

    Any thoughts on why the Pfizer share hasn't performed particularly well, despite producing the first approved Covid - 19 vaccine and pre-selling hundreds of millions of doses?

    Its pretty much at the same price as it was in January 2020, which is disappointing.

    Thanks,

    G.

    The need to store the Pfizer vaccine at -70 degrees means that once the AstraZenica and JnJ ones come online it will fall into a more specialised role for specific patients. Vaccine sales will give a bit of a bump in 2021 but long term the vaccine isn't a winner. Pfizer has also lost patent on a couple of its long term winners and overall sales in the last couple of years have been static or declining. Pfizer is no longer a growth stock but it might be handy as a small part of a portfolio as a dividend payer.

    I think it's a 50:50 revenue split, is it not?

    - see detail in the link, in my post below. Its suggesting $7bn revenue for Pfizer in 2021, alone.

    Thanks,

    They also have another product in development, which is potentially a bigger future earner for them. It looks like an upgrade on an existing patent, so that justiciar patent expiry shouldn't matter.

    Any thoughts on holding Viatris, now the Pfizer (UpJohn) transaction has completed?

    Personally, I saw that transaction as beneficial for Pfizer shareholders, sorting 2020 - although I suppose it all depends on when you sell etc.

    Thanks,
