They want to sell off a lot of assets by next year.  They want to reduce their debt load.  It is too expensive for him, but if it comes down it could be of interest to him.  You have to be weary of companies that do too many takeovers.

2017-05-10 COMMENT Paul Macdonald

He doesn’t own this because of their concentration in the MS market. There are 2 other companies in this area with possible better drugs. He feels there are going to be very binary outcomes with no dividends. Prefers something with a little more diversity.

This is gambling.  He would not touch it.  Huge debt load.  It is not even for the speculator.   It is for the gambler.

2017-04-12 DON'T BUY Christine Poole

Has new management which are trying to sell off some assets and get the prices they want. Trying to change the way they operate in terms of not buying companies that actually do internal R&D, but that is difficult because they don’t have a lot of cash, but have a lot of debt. There is not a lot of visibility, which is why the stock is trading where it is. Drug pricing is now being highly scrutinized, and she doesn’t see that going away.

2017-04-12 COMMENT John O'Connell, CFA

This is a tough call. The guy that is running the business is doing a good job. The problem is that they’ve got a debt, and what is the pricing power of this company going to be. As they sell assets in a less exuberant market than what they were purchasing them, he doesn’t think they are getting the same value proposition for the sale that offsets the amount of debt that they are able to retire. He is not touching this.

2017-03-20 COMMENT Lyle Stein

Struggling with massive amounts of debt, which was acquired when everything was looking great. The problem was, the assets they bought they probably overpaid for by using cheap paper. $30 billion is a lot of debt and he doesn’t know how they overcome it. He doesn’t like bottom fishing.

2017-03-16 DON'T BUY Zachary Curry

He would be negative on this. It is a company with a business model of increasing drug prices, by materially high amounts. This has bitten off a lot of debt in order to go on their acquisition binges. If interest rates rise and they need to get financing, it is going to be extremely difficult.

2017-03-09 COMMENT Teal Linde

Thinks this is getting beaten down because in their latest quarterly results, they guided that revenues would be down 8% this year. The company has 3 divisions, and in each of them the revenues were down year-over-year. Those 3 divisions have 15 subdivisions, and only 2 of them had revenues go up. The current is still running against this company. They have a huge debt load.

This had a big fall in 2015-2016, and it hasn’t formed a base yet. Don’t be a hero. Wait for a credible rally to develop first.

2017-03-03 WAIT David Cockfield

He was never a fan of this company. It is back into a reasonable PE area. Thinks there are still questions about just how profitable this company can be. The actual corporate plan has changed totally. You should really wait and see how well their new plan is working.

2017-02-01 DON'T BUY Brendan Caldwell

Concordia (CXR-T) or Valeant (VRX-T)? He wouldn’t pick either because whenever you have accounting irregularities, that never gets better, especially in Canada. This sector is under so much heat right now. The US president has really focused in on even legitimate drug companies and there is going to be a lot of scrutiny. doesn’t think either will survive.

2017-01-24 COMMENT Don Lato

If an aggressive investor looking for speculation, this is probably a decent speculation. On the other hand, if you are a more conservative investor, there are too many things that can go wrong. The main problem is the debt load they have. They have a debt to equity ratio of over 7 to 1. It is still making money, but it has a gun to its head with respect to selling some assets to pay down some of that debt. Also, president Trump has a target on the pharmaceutical industry.

2016-12-30 DON'T BUY Paul Harris, CFA

This is under a lot of pressure. One of the problems with a company like this is that analysts are using EBITDA, and for companies like this they should be using free cash. Thinks this is what caused a lot of the disaster. Doesn’t see any reason why you need to own this.

It has had the crap beat out of it.  They have had all kinds of difficulties.  He is always very wary of stocks that keep going up just because they are taking over other companies.  This is what hit this one.  He is not considering it at this point in time.
