Pfizer is one of the largest global pharmaceutical companies. In the past two years, Pfizer has generated plenty of sales from its COVID-19 vaccine and booster shots. However, the stock is down 29.4% through Aug. 24 this year as COVID sales have died down. Pfizer’s revenue dropped 54% in the second quarter, but the company guided for between 6% and 8% revenue growth this year, excluding COVID product sales. Analyst Sel Hardy says Pfizer’s 19-drug development pipeline has the potential to generate $20 billion in revenue by 2030. Therefore, Pfizer is the best growth pharmaceutical stock to own for long term investors.
