We estimate that J&J’s (NYSE:JNJ) phase 3 drug pipeline (not counting the enhancement of currently marketed products) could be worth as much as $30 billion, or nearly 10% of its current market value. J&J has repeatedly stated that it has a number of drugs in its phase 3 pipeline which are capable of generating more than $1 billion in peak sales, and expects to file them before 2021. J&J’s drug pipeline value is primarily attributed to oncology drugs, anti-infectives and neuroscience drugs. Take a look at our interactive breakdown of J&J’s phase 3 drug pipeline which shows key factors determining the pipeline’s value such as expected peak sales, expected growth trajectory and probability of market approval. You can play around with the assumptions to see how it impacts the drug pipeline’s revenue forecast and valuation.

Our price estimate for J&J stands at $125, implying a slight discount to the market price.
