    But hey, let others get it first!!

    If the CEO of Pfizer somehow ended up with C19 that would have looked terrible for optics and stock price - rather that 'jumping cue' somehow. I would have thought these guys would have jumped on this - but no. They obviously have a bigger picture.

    Playing favorites would be a similarly bad PR story. There is no winning for them really. The next high risk person to die from COVID, someone would have said the Pfizer exec vaccines could have gone to them instead and they would still be alive. The general public eats stuff like that up.

    Whether they take it or not they are going to get bad PR for it - they obviously are just doing what they feel is the lesser of the two.

    You guy dont get it - if the Pfizer CEO somehow got COVID (with or without a vaccine) - it would be a HUGE disaster for the stock prices and public opinion. The price of getting a vaccine and 'cutting in line' (of 1.3 BILLION vaccines they are making) is absolutely fuck all in comparison.

    Either:

    a) they dont think C19 is that bad and/or
    b) they are not confident in their vaccine in preventing c19 or the possible side effects


    Remember that this is the 0.01% we are talking about - the American corporate elite. They have absolutely ZERO fucks to give about 'cutting in line' if it serves their purpose.

    They would have then said 'WE WANTED TO SHOW CONFIDENCE IN OUR PRODUCT' - had they been accused of cutting in.

    There is a nurse out there with a 5000 Euro bonus and a nasty NDA who put the shot in the CEO's arm secretly. Then the PR people decided which was better: looking woke, or looking like you wanted to be seen getting the shot.

    Agreed

    What’s more shocking is all the people using a click bait website as source material. Might as well cite Facebook.

    Yep, and none of the Pfizer board has touched the vaccine since.

    Had they had good reason to, they would have gotten this vaccine the nano second it was deemed 'safe' or 'effective' by their internal studies.

    How much is Pfizer set to profit from all these vaccine sales?

    Has anyone's company announced that they are looking to buy vaccines for their staff? There was speculation that ours was (large multinational) but they announced today they would not be looking to do this saying that it would be unfair to society to skip the line and instead donated some money to the COVAX initiative.

    Was kinda hoping they could pull something off, but totally makes sense they took the woke optics route especially being an already-vilified O&G company.

    O&G companies needs everyone else to get shots and not their employees. With EU gov losing their shit on vaccine availability and about to do export control, you definitely don't want to appear to have access that isn't thru official government channels right now.

    You cant make this up - Pfzier CEO sold millions in shares the day after the official relase date of the vaccine. Other vaccine companies also sold shares, to the tune of 100 million dollars in the past few months.

    The timing of the selling of shares was set in advance, all they had to do was adjust the timing of the announcement date.

    Were in the middle of a major pandemic, these guys have a cure - but instead of doubling down on their shares, they mass exit the ship - similar to the ~500 CEOs that quit in 2019-early 2020.

    Is there so little left to criticize that we're back to dredging up conspiracies that are months old and have been thoroughly debunked?

    It's not horseshit but it's also understandable. After they got tons of investment by retail investors having their names on most MSM, I would cash out too.

    Because it's all going to be either flat or down here on out once things are normalized.

    We are talking about a stock with 5 year low of $36 and high of $43.

    There is no normal anymore - the new variants will make sure of that. Infinite goal post relocation.

    Vaccines were touted as the second coming of christ to bring us back to normal - what happened?

    The CEO of Pfizer sold the day after the news came out. He could have easily adjusted or delayed the sale to avoid the bad optics.
