Bristol-Myers Squibb Co (NYSE:BMY) Initiated with a Sell Rating

Stock Traders Daily has initiated coverage of Bristol-Myers Squibb Co (NYSE:BMY) with a sell rating.  Our rating is based on valuation that relates directly to earnings growth and our assessment suggests that the multiple currently being paid on shares of Bristol Myers far exceeds its growth rate making it expensive accordingly.

Furthermore, our macro economic analysis, The Investment Rate, tells us that the economy and the stock market are likely to come under severe pressure as new demand for equities in the United States retraces back to its natural level, something that is reasonable now that stimulus is over and that institutional margin debt levels are already at excessive highs.

With a reversion back to natural demand levels multiple contractions are likely in the stock market and those stocks that look rich will likely be most vulnerable to a decline.

With a high current PE multiple and a low current growth rate, and with expectations for that to continue for at least the next year, we believe investors in Bristol Myers should sell.
