Bristol Myers Squibb

Bristol Myers Squibb (NYSE: BMY) is scheduled to report its Q1 2022 results on Friday, April 29. We expect BMS to report revenue and earnings above the consensus estimates. Market share gains for Eliquis, Opdivo, and Reblozyl likely drove BMS’ sales growth. BMY stock has seen a 23% rise YTD, outperforming its peers and the broader markets, primarily due to an increase in dividends and boosting its share repurchase program. Despite the recent rise, we believe there is some room left for BMY stock price growth, as discussed below.
