- Humira's pipeline -- AbbVie has a tremendous opportunity to serve hepatitis C patients, of whom there are 170 million worldwide.
- Concerns about Humira are overdone. Humira is a biologic, which is more difficult to copy than other small molecule drugs.
- AbbVie has one of the top dividends among big pharma, sporting a 4% yield.
