The Pitch: Novartis

As they say on TV, it’s the cold-calling segment that's sweeping the nation; one trader, one stock, and 30 seconds to make the case.

Pete Najarian is making a pitch for drug maker Novartis .

But do you think his trade will generate healthy returns?


Here are Najarian’s main points:

- Shares Under-Performed Peers

- Growth in China

Everyone in this country talks about JNJ but if you look to the other side of the pond, it’s counter-part is Novartis, explains Najarian. Like JNJ they're diversified and do business in generics, big pharma and personal products.

Their sales are up 11% and their business is growing in China. With the P/E at 11 and a 3% dividend yield there’s a lot of reasons to like this stock.

What do you think? We want to know!
