BOSTON ( TheStreet) -- Investors seeking steady dividends coupled with inflation-beating share appreciation may want to consider big drugmakers' stocks. They're expected to have as yet unrecognized growth potential from emerging market demand.Investors are discounting the potential profit contribution from emerging markets because of their recent economic volatility and investors focus on the more dominant U.S. market, while there is also a misperception that operating profit margins coming from such markets are too low to matter, wrote Damien Conover, a Morningstar drug industry analyst, in a research report. "We expect this discount will dissipate as emerging markets' economies stabilize and their sales contribution increases."
