What are Wall Street analysts saying about Bausch Health Companies stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Bausch Health Companies stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Bausch’s performance in the fourth quarter was encouraging. After a tumultuous period, Bausch started a rebuilding process. The company also changed its name. Even though it is still early to comment on the rebuilding process, Bausch’s efforts to sell non-core assets and pay down huge levels of debt are commendable. The company recorded 1% organic growth in 2018 and reduced debt by more than $1 billion. Bausch repaid $400 million of debt in the fourth quarter of 2018. Bausch has narrowed its focus on seven recently launched or expected to be launched products, pending completion of testing and receipt of FDA approval. Bausch's Salix business continues to drive growth and contribute to the top line. In particular, increased sales of Xifaxan is boosting the segment. However, the dermatology market continues to be challenging. Shares have performed better than the industry in the past six months." (3/5/2019)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation methodology, risks, and uncertainties. We employ a cash EPS multiple-based approach. The cash EPS number is derived from our adjusted 12-month income, which takes the GAAP net loss of ~$2.08B and adds back $400M in asset impairment-related charges, $189M in tax-related expenses, and $2.94B in amortization-related charges. This yields total adjusted (non-GAAP) income of roughly $1.5B, which we divide by approximately 360M shares outstanding to derive our 12-month cash EPS of $5.51 per share." (2/28/2019)
  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". Post a beat and raise quarter, we reiterating our OW rating and 12-month price target of C$32 for BHC shares.
