GlaxoSmithKline's R&D is Delivering, But the Street's Not Buying
Published: Jul 26, 2012
One of the less endearing, if not outright annoying, traits of those who make up Wall Street is their tendency to harp on whatever a company doesn't have at the moment. In the case of Big Pharma, good current quarterly results are often waved off with skepticism about generic competition and/or the pipeline. For GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) it looks like the reverse is true. Forget the solid pipeline and good recent Phase 3 results, it's this quarter's bad performance that somehow proves Glaxo isn't a good company.
