|16th jan Jefferies buy tp 1750p up from 1700p|
|Well with the £ @ 12000 against the US$ this is becoming a mouthwatering takeover target imho
Trump rally will fade and more cash will pour into these multi national, strong management,blue chip plays with a decent divi.|
|Dr B, I think you will find Farage has more than considerable minority support. The forthcoming by election results should be quite interesting even if Farage is no longer leader.
In the meantime I continue to hold as the dividend income is remarkable. I'm sure GSK will weather the Trump storm.|
|Trump will shake everything up !
However to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
The real question is how other nations to react to the changes Trump will bring.
Particular China on trade and Europe on funding. NATO.|
|Hard to argue against some sort of action against high drug prices. Unfortunately big pharma hasn't covered itself in glory with multiple fines for misconduct. But somehow the price of development also needs to drop to keep the incentive for new drugs.|
|Trump likely to target drug prices (FT).|
|Nope. Don't think so|
|Will there is a special dividend this year ??|
|GSK is viewed as a strategic asset, HMG would be unlikely to allow a sale in its
current form imv.|
|In the NYSE the share price had recovered most of the drop we saw here by the market close.|
|Trump is a fool, what press conference, a complete shambles, one has to be worried but if these get cheaper I will add more, a takeover from overseas will be even more likely, whilst £ is in a rocky place.|
|DT is rattling the cages of various industries, auto, pharma etc. He could, of course turn his attention to all the Delaware company shelters - but then he may have some there too!|
|It is difficult to ascertain what affect Trump will have on pharmaceutical companies but I am convinced it is going to be nothing matching his rhetoric. Even with a republican majority there will be strong support for pharmaceutical companies within the party and legislation moving forward will need agreement with the democrats because significantly more(%) than a majority vote is needed to pass some legislation through. Obamacare introduces millions into the healthcare services umbrella and democrats will want to see this remains the case.
Additionally, use of hospital beds is extremely expensive and if they want to reduce - probably one of the greatest single costs to hospitals - then choosing the best drug for efficacy most likely saves the most; this leads to not much choice of suppliers where bidding then becomes pointless or impossible. If you want the drug - the sad fact is - you are going to have to pay for it. If you want more choice you need to encourage investment which, in turn, is only attracted if pharma can make money.
The buffoon hasn't really thought this one out just like arresting Hillary or building the Mexican fence.|
|Moving manufacture is a bit of a nonsense; much of the high value (margin) actives will be produced in low tax areas. Pharma manufacture takes a long time to set up with all the approvals - not like producing a pair of socks.
DT will have to hit pricing or taxes to achieve anything in the short term.|
|By no means a sector meltdown atm, PFE and NVS down under 2%.
Would expect some continued volatility.|
|Back up to 1602p stateside now.|
|Pretty rich bozo.|
|Despite the rash of doom-mongering here, doesn't look like Trump's rhetoric is having much effect thus far. Can't see the moron lasting too long anyway - probably be lynched by his own supporters when they realise they've elected bozo the clown.|
