THis company is in a good market because Pharmeceuticals will always be needed, but a PE ration of 659 is simply unsustainable. A PE of above 40 is high, but this companies stock is over 600 times more expensive than its earnings per share. That's bad.

Not to mention the fact that if there is *any* bad news or negative press, speculators will abandon ship quickly. With p/e this high, the downside is much greater than the upside. In fact I don't see any upside with the price this high.
