If the writers' strike has you looking for alternatives to insomnia-fighting late-night TV shows, then Pfizer may have just what the doctor ordered. Tune into the company's web cast for investors and analysts at 11 p.m. Eastern Daylight Savings Time on Thursday, November 29th.
If you don't believe me check out the press release on the Pfizer web site. The world's biggest drug company is taking its show on the road to Hong Kong.
About this time last year Pfizer held a Drug Research and Development Day for the same crowd at its Groton, CT facility. That's doable for most of Wall Street as it's just a quick train-ride away. Keep in mind, though, that we (reporters) were kept on a very tight leash there. But Hong Kong? During the same time period Merck, Eli Lilly (which is based in Indianapolis) and Bristol-Myers Squibb are all holding analyst meetings in or around New York City. They usually attract at least a couple hundred analysts, investors and reporters and many more listen into the web casts.
