We expect Roche  ( RHHBY ) to post low-single-digit revenue growth in 2018, as its blockbuster oncology drug Rituxan faces biosimilar headwinds in Europe. Note that Rituxan sales were down 11% in Europe in 2017. Rituxan, Herceptin and Avastin are the top selling drug for Roche, accounting for over $19 billion in sales in 2017. For Roche, the Oncology segment will likely grow in low-single-digits led by a ramp up in sales of newer drugs, such as Tecentriq and Perjeta. We have created an interactive dashboard on how we expect 2018 to shape up for Roche. You can adjust forecasts and other estimates to see how changes would impact the company's earnings. We forecast the company's earnings to be around $2 per share in 2018.
