LAST QUARTER: Pfizer reported first quarter EPS of 57c, which beat consensus estimates of 55c, on revenue of $11.4B, which was lower than consensus estimates of $12.09B. Pfizer reported that Q1 revenues decreased $1.1B, or 9%. The operational decrease was primarily due to the expiration of the co-promotion term of the collaboration agreement for Enbrel in the U.S. and Canada, the ongoing expiration of the Spiriva collaboration in certain countries, the continued the continued erosion of branded Lipitor in the U.S. and most other developed markets due to generic competition, as well as the loss of exclusivity and subsequent multi-source generic competition for Detrol LA in the U.S. and other product losses of exclusivity in certain markets. Revenues were favorably impacted primarily by the strong operational growth of Lyrica, Xalkori and Inlyta globally, Enbrel outside of the U.S. and Canada, recently launched products, Eliquis and Xeljanz, primarily in the U.S. STREET RESEARCH: On July 28, BMO Capital downgraded Pfizer to Market Perform from Outperform. As reasons for the downgrade, the firm cited what it sees as the weakening of the company's mature franchises and significant loss of exclusivity headwinds in 2015. The firm lowered its target on Pfizer shares to $31 from $34. PRICE ACTION: Since its last earnings report on May 5, shares of the drug maker are relatively flat. Pfizer shares are trading down fractionally to just below $30 today ahead of earnings.
