Financial results

As the company reported, during this period Pfizer earned 10 cents per share on an adjusted basis. Analysts surveyed by LSEG on average expected a loss of 22 cents per share.

Pfizer achieved this result due to demand for drugs against coronavirus, produced jointly with German BioNTech, as well as a 22% reduction in research costs.

The company aims to return to full-year profitability thanks to a $4 billion cost-cutting program and internal restructuring.

Market reaction

Pfizer shares have lost over the past year 37%. After the release of the report on Tuesday, the price began to rise before the market opened and jumped 1.2%, but subsequently pulled back to the low of the last 5 days.
