Nothing to do with Covid. Pfizer produces Viagra.
Either way, Pfizer haven't performed well recently. It's certainly not strongly up because of Viagra.
My Pfizer-BioNTech covid vaccine injection had no side effects, while a few people report Oxford AstraZ giving minor side effects on the next day or two.

I’ve been watching for a decent Renault Clio Sport 172 phase 1 for a while. I ordered and owned the second one in the country back in ‘99. Bulldog face models have already started to leap in value. An extremely usable ‘classic’ car to own. £5k possibly.

Which is relevant how? I've had two Pfizer jabs with no side effects, but it's got nothing to do with the subject raised by the OP.

You won’t find the M3 for £5k but a good spec and a good condition E46 won’t lose you any bread.

Escort Mk4 RS2000 is a good bet as well.

Jeep Cherokee XJ is on the up.

4 door Range Rover Classic. (2 door is now stratospheric).

Peugeot 306 GTI-6 because the 205 1.9gti is too expensive.

The trick is to see what is going through the roof and then guess what’s almost as good. For example, air cooled Porsche’s are silly money so what’s the next best thing?? A pukka 996.

I'm not convinced it's a sound plan at this time. Where the markets have been less than appetising due to recent happenings, big money has been poured into vehicles as an alternative investment wagon. Expect a rebalancing on the horizon as the world realises that people got carried away.

It's possible the window for viable up and coming classics is already closing. The complexity of newer cars has effectively made them disposable, all too easy to become uneconomical to repair.

You're right. Buying shares in Pfizer has nothing to do with putting £5k into a car for a few years.
I originally pointed out that Pfizer is a poor financial investment, despite popular interest in Pfizer because of Covid.

I wouldn't bother with Astra Zeneca shares at the moment either. I've held them for 28 years so have a good feel for price trends. They initially did well out of Covid even though they are supposed to be selling vaccine at cost but they are on the way down now since announcing the overpriced purchase of another company.
