Here are a few observations:

  • Swiss drug giant Novartis(NVS) replaced last year’s topper Pfizer (PFE).  Novartis beats Pfizer in R&D expenditure as well.
  • The top 10 firms are either from the U.S. or developed Europe.
  • It is not surprising to see Israeli generic drug maker Teva(TEVA) on the 12th place since generics are becoming more popular among cost-conscious consumers.
  • Denmark-based Novo Nordisk(NVO) is the world leading drug and equipment maker for diabetes. Hence the company has strong growth potential in emerging countries such as China where diabetes is becoming more prevalent as people’s food habits change.
