I am a long term investor who appreciates high dividends. Everything I have seen from GSK indicates a company that while struggling currently, has a good long term outlook. They pay a 5% + dividend and management is bullish on their ability to… More

GSK is revising Avandia product label to reflect negative events such as myocardial ischemia. Since there is no reduction in cardiovascular risks for diabetics, this reduces the long term outlook for the profitablity of this drug product and GSK.

GlaxoSmithKline is at the forefront of some interesting R&D, but the amount of debt facing this company would really make me nervous as an investor. I'd avoid this one in my portfolio. It only makes sense to invest in healthcare stocks with high debt loads if the company is in the small or midcap space. Once a company reaches a market cap of 100 billion with an enormous debt load to match, it almost becomes impossible for the company to pay off that level of debt-- even if it has some surprise success stories in its pipeline going forward.
