Rx Cash Cows?: 5 Dividend-Paying Pharma Stocks

Before we dive into some pharma's with attractive dividends, keep in mind that I never buy stocks at year-to-date (YTD) highs or that have recently had a bull run. My personal favorite is $ABBV. The amazing dividend yield, and volatility. It allows me to have the opportunity to buy in at a perceived low.
