Merger And Takeover Rumors In The Drug Industry - These Are The Best Dividend Yields To Catch!

Pharmacy stocks come into the focus of investors. Novartis, a Swiss drug producer, announced a few big deals with GlaxoSmithKline and Eli Lilly. Valeant Pharmaceuticals International wants to buy rival Allergan for USD 48 billion and Pfizer talked with AstraZeneca about a $100 billion takeover transaction.

The whole industry is still under pressure due to the patent cliff but there are also big opportunities due to an aging population. The risks are cost pressure by the government. Politicians want a cheap care for the population. However, below is an overview of the largest drug makers and their dividend payments. I've only published those stocks with a market cap above USD 100 billion. What do you think - who has the best position to create big shareholder values?
