— The Editorial Advisory and Securities Review Committee of BetterInvesting Magazine today announced Shire plc (Nasdaq: SHPGY) as its February 2012 “Stock to Study” and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Limited (Nasdaq: TEVA) as its February 2012 “Undervalued Stock” for investors’ informational and educational use.
"The committee chose Shire for its diversified portfolio of pharmaceuticals, and good patent protection, coupled with a historically high growth rate and long-term prospects,” said Adam Ritt, editor of BetterInvesting Magazine. “For the Undervalued selection, the committee believes Teva’s stock, current at a historically low valuation, will benefit from improvements in the generics market, the company’s new joint venture with Procter & Gamble and other growth drivers.” Check BetterInvesting Magazine’s February 2012 issue for more details about these selections.
ommittee members are Robert M. Bilkie, Jr., CFA; Daniel J. Boyle, CFA; Philip S. Dano, CFA; Donald E. Danko, CFA; Maury Elvekrog, CFA; Walter J. Kirchberger, CFA; Marisa Lenhard, CFA; and Paul McVey, CFA.
