Another Emerging Markets Move for Big Pharma

There's nothing new about the corporate quest to capitalize on growth in emerging economies. For GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE: GSK  ) , which is increasing its stake in both in its Indian and Nigerian consumer health businesses, emerging economies provide an opportunity to boost otherwise stagnant revenue trends within its core pharmaceuticals business in the U.S. and Europe. In the following video, health care bureau chief Brenton Flynn runs through the Glaxo news and highlights some other big pharma players targeting emerging markets to spur growth going forward: Johnson & Johnson  (NYSE: JNJ  ) and Abbott Laboratories (NYSE: ABT  ) .

Emerging markets growth isn't the only thing Abbott investors should be paying attention to. With the impending spinoff of its branded-drug business, Abbott Labs is losing a massive blockbuster drug in Humira. It's a confusing event to understand, with many investors left wondering what to do with these two stocks once they're separated. To help investors better understand the upcoming event, the Fool has created a brand new premium report outlining both Abbott Labs and its spinoff, AbbVie. Inside, we outline all of the must-know opportunities and risks facing both companies, so make sure to claim this 2-for-1 report by clicking here now
