3 Reasons to Buy AbbVie Today

Brenton Flynn, Motley Fool health care bureau chief, discusses AbbVie. Like other pharmaceutical companies, this company serves a non-cyclical market of consumers that aren't very price-conscious. He then addresses specific advantages that AbbVie enjoys, naming three reasons to buy the stock:

  1. Humira's pipeline -- AbbVie has a tremendous opportunity to serve hepatitis C patients, of whom there are 170 million worldwide.
  2. Concerns about Humira are overdone. Humira is a biologic, which is more difficult to copy than other small molecule drugs.
  3. AbbVie has one of the top dividends among big pharma, sporting a 4% yield.

Follow along in the video below to learn more about each of these reasons you might consider buying AbbVie for your portfolio.


In the pharma business, great success comes with a caveat. AbbVie is a perfect example, as investors in the new company are left wondering what the future holds once the company's golden goose, Humira, is cooked.
