Shares of Pfizer outperformed the industry Zacks Large Cap Pharmaceuticals over the past year (+42.0% vs. +18.5%). Pfizer has a diverse portfolio of innovative medicines and vaccines, including Ibrance and Prevnar. The Zacks analyst believes that no company is as strongly positioned in the COVID vaccine/treatment market as Pfizer at present. Its COVID-19 vaccine has become a key revenue contributor. The vaccine combined with Pfizer’s promising oral antiviral pill for COVID-19, Paxlovid, is expected to generate combined sales of $54 billion in 2022.

Pfizer has a sustainable pipeline with several late-stage programs that can drive growth. However, currency headwinds and pricing pressure are the main revenue headwinds. Concerns remain about its long-term growth drivers beyond its COVID-related products due to competitive pressure.

Shares of Coca Cola outperformed soft drink industry Zacks Beverages over the past year (+13.5% vs. +7.9%). Coca-Cola’s revenue and net income exceeded estimates for the fourth consecutive quarter. The Zacks analyst believes results benefited from the company’s strategic transformation and the ongoing global recovery.

Income from investments and the ongoing recovery in the markets, where the disruption caused by the pandemic is easing. Strength in most markets, investments in the market, recovery in some markets as well as the cycle of impacts from last year’s pandemic helped volumes.

The company provided an optimistic view of 2022. It is poised to benefit from innovations and accelerating digital investments. However, pressures from higher supply chain costs, including transportation and input costs, persist. Higher marketing spend is also a concern.

Shares of Adobe underperformed the Zacks Computer – Software industry over the past year (-7.0% vs. +9.7%). The Zacks analyst believes that declining end-market demand and high acquisition spending remain major overhangs for the company.

However, Adobe is enjoying strong demand for its cloud products. The company’s Creative Cloud, Document Cloud and Adobe Experience Cloud products help it drive revenue growth. Additionally, rising subscription revenue and strong mobile app momentum remain major positives.

Additionally, growth in emerging markets, strong demand for online video creation, strong adoption of Acrobat, and improving average revenue per user remain supportive. The Zacks analyst remains optimistic about Adobe’s market position, compelling product lines, persistent innovation, and strong adoption of Creative Cloud and Adobe Marketing Cloud.

Zacks names ‘only one best choice for doubling up’

It’s a little-known chemical company that’s up 65% year-on-year, but still very cheap. With relentless demand, rising earnings estimates for 2022 and $1.5 billion for stock buybacks, retail investors could jump in at any moment.
