Pfizer falls short, trims 2013 profit view

April 30 (Reuters) - Pfizer Inc reported lower-than-expected quarterly earnings as sales disappointed and the stronger dollar hurt overseas revenue, and the largest U.S. drugmaker trimmed its full-year profit outlook.

The company said on Tuesday that it earned $2.75 billion, or 38 cents per share, in the first quarter. That compared with $1.79 billion, or 24 cents per share, in the year-earlier period, when Pfizer took charges to boost productivity and address legal matters.
