Is Merck Stock a Good Buy?


In my Is Merck a Good Stock to Buy? guest post published on January 13, 2022 at Dividend Power, I share my thoughts on why investors may no longer want to look at MRK through the same lens as in the past.

The current Merck & Co., Inc. (MRK) is much different from that with which many investors may be familiar. The company now aspires to be the premier research-intensive biopharmaceutical company and no longer has the steady/reliable slow growth women’s health, trusted legacy brands and biosimilars businesses.

I think the direction it has taken makes it a company that presents the opportunity for growth that is superior to historical levels. In exchange for this higher growth potential, however, is slightly higher risk.

I wish you much success on your journey to financial freedom!
