Pfizer Needs AstraZeneca More Than Ever as Generics Increase

TheStreet (May 5, 2014) — Pfizer shares are slipping after the drug maker posted first-quarter profits 15% lower than a year earlier and revenue down 9%. Net income of 57 cents a share beat expectations by 2 cents, but $11.3 billion in sales fell short of analysts' estimates of $12.1 billion. The weaker-than-expected report comes days after its latest offer to purchase British drug maker AstraZeneca for $106 billion was rejected. Pfizer has seen lost profits on greater competition from generic brands on the market. Video provided by TheStreet

Express Scripts Misses EPS, Cuts Guidance on Fewer Prescriptions

TheStreet (Apr. 30, 2014) — Express Scripts, a manager of pharmacy benefits, reported profits of 99 cents a share in its first quarter, missing estimates by 2 cents, while revenue fell over 9% from a year earlier to $23.7 billion. The shortfall resulted from harsher-than-normal winter weather and as enrollments in public healthcare exchanges under Obamacare came later in the quarter than expected. Lower prescription volumes are expected to persist over the year. Management cut full-year EPS estimates as a result. Video provided by TheStreet
