4.9% Yielding AbbVie Is The Best Buffett Aristocrat Bargain You Can Buy
Warren Buffett became the greatest investor of all time thanks to disciplined financial science and a love of "wonderful companies at fair prices". Today 4.9% yielding AbbVie is Berkshire's 2nd biggest aristocrat holding, totaling over $2.3 billion. AbbVie combines world-class quality, safety, dependability, and risk management (82nd industry percentile), all in a 29% undervalued anti-bubble package. ABBV is trading at just 8.8X patent cliff trough earnings, baking in virtually zero growth, despite 3.9% CAGR consensus growth forecasts and an impeccable track record for beating expectations. AbbVie could double in the next five years, making it one of the best Buffett aristocrats you can buy if you're comfortable with the risk profile.
AbbVie: The FDA Decision On RINVOQ Likely Means Trouble
AbbVie is a premier dividend stock with a superior and safe dividend. The business has been firing on all cylinders but a recent FDA decision likely spells trouble. One of AbbVie's slated future blockbuster drugs, RINVOQ, is now required to carry a problematic safety warning label which may dramatically damage its sales potential. The FDA decision is certainly not something investors should brush aside easily as it could have damaging long-term implications. Risks regarding AbbVie's ability to quickly replace expected declines in HUMIRA revenues have undoubtedly increased.
Downward Pressures and Flat Earnings Outweigh the AbbVie Inc.'s (NYSE:ABBV) Dividend Yield
