Pharmaceutical sales—particularly of its new hepatitis C drug Olysio and other high margin meds—propelled the healthcare giant’s growth in 2014. The company also broadened its pipeline with the acquisitions of two biopharma firms, Alios and Covagen. Facing pricing pressure in medical devices, J&J scaled back the business, device division, dropping certain women’s health products and divesting itself of Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics. The company’s consumer segment, meanwhile, got a boost from brisk sales of painkillers and new varieties of Listerine.
