The earnings will be changed in the future as all these companies find their battleground.

What we have seen in novartis this morning is strong results.

In fact, when you look at the share price, astrazeneca has gained 2.5%. earnings were lower but investors are focusing on the pipeline and the drugs they have that will be working.

That has been the theme for the last five years.
