2017-09-12 DON'T BUY Christine Poole

Doesn’t think this is investable. Net debt to EBITDA is about 11X, which is very high. They have absolutely no visibility in terms of pricing in the UK, because the whole pricing regime is changing. She can’t see how they are going to pay the debt which comes due in 2021.

2017-06-23 COMMENT James Hodgins

He is pessimistic on this. They recently hired another set of advisors to advise them on capital structure. That usually doesn’t end well for equity holders. Just had so much debt. The big UK acquisition they made really went south on them in a hurry. Expects debt holders are either going to want a massive equity dilution or for some kind of bankruptcy and restructuring. The equity is probably close to worthless.

This as not an investable name. They borrowed money to make a UK acquisition and are having issues with that.

Technically it has fallen off the face of the earth.  You are making a gamble at this point.  He would not move into healthcare at this time of the year.

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.

It is dead money.  This has been a disaster.  You are going to see a lot of write-offs from this company.  You have to wait for the write-offs.  His model price is a little misnomer.  You could hold it if you own it.

2016-12-23 SELL John Zechner

A lot of people took a bath this year. There were a few additional issues that came up. BREXIT hurt them more than expected. The acquisition of Amco was based primarily in Britain, and the currency translation really hurt. Also, they have generic competition for some of their US drugs. When you have a large debt outstanding, there is no room in your equity. Sold his holdings in the high teens. He doesn’t know if they will survive. Take a tax loss today, and then later on you can buy it back.

2016-12-01 COMMENT Ross Healy

Very, very cheap. Sells at Price to Book at about 3. Of that book value, to all sense and purposes, it is all “goodwill”, which he might refer to as water in a portfolio. Analysts have been slow in pulling down their earnings forecasts.

Not a company that is investable at the current price. They have a massive debt load. The UK is changing the rules with respect to generic drugs. They’ve had management changes. Incredibly speculative.

Management has just not delivered. The last 2 quarters were pretty big surprises, even to management. The US business is floundering. You can’t trust management forecasts at this point. They are in a transition phase and scrambling to sell off an asset.

(A Top Pick Nov 3/15. Down 88.26%.) This was just a bad call in retrospect. BREXIT, their US competition in some of their key drugs, and their high debt created a disaster for them. He doesn’t know if they even survive.

This is about as toxic as they come.  Integrity of financial reporting is in question.  He is not a fan of pretend earnings.  The stock chart is badly broken.  The business model is under heavy attack in the US.  The bonds are CCC rated.

I hope this company drops to zero for ethical reasons.

I do not invest in healthcare but seeing this zero comment (meaningless) and watching BNN interview the CEO of Concordia today I must comment. My concern is BNN is starting to act more like FOX TV for negative sensation than ever before. We know you are intelligent A, you do not have to prove yourself by subtly attacking the interviewee with 100% negativity. One positive question would make your approach more credible.

To the point raised by barney11 on October 21, 2015 - I must credit the BNN interview of the CEO and agree with BNN (and disagree with barney 11) that the only useful way to present information in a fair manner is to ask the hard questions and play devils advocate. You can be certain that executives form companies that are publicly traded will offer up the best spin on everything to entice buyers of their company stock. To be fair - they must be challenged. There are people out there investing their hard earned dollars and they deserve to know the downside risks. If anything - I find that the interviews are too soft on the executives. But made for television analysis must be kind or else there would be few guests to interview. By the way - look at the collapse of this particular stock and tell me now that you think the interview was too negative!!!!

Martin, a year later you missed the point and obviously did not watch the interview. Would you have bothered to make your comment if CRX was up $100."A" has not repeated the same approach since, and I believe she is maturing in her assignment.
