Reasons to buy – AbbVie

High level decisions on buy or sell for a stock should be driven by

1. The margin that the company makes. i.e. Out of $1 that the company sells how much does the company taken home.

    • Here we see AbbVie makes a margin of 36% on Operating Level and about 35% on Net level. This means that out of $1 that it makes $0.35 is being pocketed as profits.

2. The growth rates of the company on revenue, net income, EPS and Dividend. i.e. If it sold $1 last year how much more did it sell this year.

    • Here we see net revenue growth of 21% in the revenue and the net profit figures grew by 62%.

3. The efficiency ratios of the company on Equity and Assets. i.e. How well is the company able to sweat each $1 that it puts to work in the company.

    • Here we see AbbVie makes a Return on Assets of 16% and Return of Equity of 313% which is pretty good.

FDA approved cannabis based drug and other pharma product. I am not going to say anything more. Off course from our parameters the Debt/Equity is high, so that needs to be watched so that the debt doesn’t blow up.

GOLD STANDARD : This is one of the no-debate stocks that are a must have in ones portfolio.
