According to Guggenheim analyst Vamil Divan in a report released last week, Pfizer is likely to be worth $36 per share. The closing price on Friday represented a gain of approximately 30%.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pfizer’s cash generated from operations surged, and its share price followed suit. Stock, however, has declined by more than 50% since its pandemic-era high as investors wonder whether and how the company can regain growth.

A breakthrough in cancer treatment

According to Guggenheim’s Divan, the company does have a path towards growth. As the company commercializes treatments for cancer and respiratory syncytial viruses, which are more commonly known as RSV, he believes that the company’s near-term financial estimates may be overly conservative.

Pfizer investors seeking growth should pay attention to this area. It is possible to own stock without considering it a growth stock, however.

Earnings from passive sources

Therefore, investors can expect to receive high levels of passive income as long as the business maintains its level of cash flow and income generation.
