Soros Buys Pfizer before Bird Flu Announcement Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Thu, Dec 22, 2011, 03:06 am

Oil Tycoon George Soros may have obtained some inside information from the Hong Kong government when he decided to purchase stocks of the pharmaceutical giant, Pfizer.

He bought 11,787 shares of Pfizer right before Hong Kong announced a bird flu alert. Mr. Soros opened his Hong Kong headquarters in November 2010.

SeekingAlpha reports that, “the biggest position of Soros Management Fund among the stocks listed above is Biogen, a global biotechnology company. As of September 30, Soros Fund Management disclosed to own $19 million of BIIB. BIIB is also a new position in the fund. It has a very low debt to equity ratio of 0.17 and a beta of 0.86. The stock returned 18.40% since the end of the third quarter, beating the 8.14% for SPY in the same period. Andreas Halvorsen’s Viking Global had more than $200 million invested in BIIB.”

Meanwhile Soros is also bullish about Pfizer Inc.. He boosted its stake in PFE by 17% to $12 million. PFE has a debt to equity ratio of 0.46 and a beta of 0.72. The stock gained 20.17% since the end of September outperforming the market by over 12%. Ken Fisher’s Fisher Asset Management had almost $400 million invested in PFE.

More lies and half-truths by a neo-fascist who apparently is paid by Bank of America to blaim investors for their breakdown of the economy. George Soros has never been an "oil tycoon" but an investor who did very well for his partners by seeking hidden value not by inside information. As for the Banksters who have put many out on the street, so they could bulldoze their houses, they will be judged by God almighty who has warned the Banksters and their pawns to repent and make restitution. Greed has never been good and they and their shills will find out what it means to be a camel trying to fit through the eye of a needle.

Soros buys Pfizer stocks. He gets inside info from the Hong Kong government? Man, this guy's activities need to be regulated or something. He's getting America into trouble everywhere. People need to wake up. He's trying to install a puppet regime in Azerbaijan. Supporting Samir Sharifov. He should retire!

George Soros, Godfather Of The Left Gives $550 Million To Liberal Causes
The reader should be reminded that the 'generosity' of Soros' giving to subversive organizations is made possible due to your tax-exempt subsidies granted to him through his tax-free foundations. Is this what Lenin meant by "They'll sell the rope to hang themselves" ?

Soros is the ultimate market manipulator and influence peddler. He is corrupt to the point where as far as Soros is concerned this no news, but still interesting. Investor confidence will not be restored until the Hitler of financial markets gets served some justice, but nobody is willing to touch Soros because of his political connections and his media propaganda machine that destroys enemies. Watch the entire market go down along with everything else Soros touches.

Matteo you can be assured that even Soros' sons long for the day that this guy gets recalled back to Hades. He has NGO's along with millions "donated" for his influence peddling in almost every country in South America. Dr. Evil incarnate is almost more fascinating than his fictional character, and much more dangerous.

Matteo, Forbes published an article about Soros and Azerbaijan. Here's the link. This should be required reading in the U.S.

I just want to note that lately, Soros' connection to Samir Sharifov has become more recognized which is good, however, people need to look into Sharifov's other connections, like to the CIA, as well as his history of corruption - mismanaging the state oil fund and collects kickbacks from the Asian Development Bank where he serves as a governor for azerbaijan

Well, "feather" me stupid, but it seems like what Soros is doing is more transparent than my sliding glass door, which birds fly into all the time. I wish Soros would fly into (or out of) a window. Except, in the bird's case, I would feel bad. George Soros and Azerbaijan Finance Minister Samir Sharifov. 'nuff said.
