  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Valeant’s Bausch + Lomb/International segment and Salix businesses are doing well and should propel the top-line in the coming quarters. The approval of new drugs should boost the top line. After a tumultuous period, Valeant started a rebuilding process with its CEO, Joseph C. Papa. Shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the last six months. Even though it is still early to comment on the rebuilding process but the company’s efforts to sell non-core assets and pay lower debt is commendable. As of Feb 28, 2018, the company reduced total debt by approximately $6.7 billion since the end of first-quarter 2016. The dermatology business remains challenging and is expected to decline in 2018 as compared to 2017.  The guidance for 2018 was disappointing. Hence, it might be a while before the company turn arounds as management had projected." (4/2/2018)
