Several hedge funds and other institutional investors have recently bought and sold shares of VRX.

This is a technical analysis stock rating for Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc (NYSE:VRX).

"The hits just keep comin' for Valeant", Gimme Credit LLC bond analyst Vicki Bryan, who advises selling the bonds, said in a note to clients. On the stock market today it touched an all-time low at 10.50, and was down 12.5%, near 10.60, in midmorning trading. The company maintains price to book ratio of 0.85. Also, Director Thomas W. Sr.

By September 2015, Valeant stock stopped climbing and began its descent - by mid-November, the stock would be down to $75 per share. The investment, which represents about 1.5 percent to 3 percent of Pershing Square's funds, required "a disproportionately large amount of time and resources", according to a statement Monday. The stock reached its high of almost $260 per share shortly after that in July 2015. The latest bid places it $-43.1399 away from the 52-week high of $53.9000, or -80.0369%. While the actual EPS the company reported in the same quarter previous year was 1.27/share. For the next 5 years, Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc.is expecting Growth of 12.95% per annum, whereas in the past 5 years the growth was 12.66% per annum. Ackman acquired millions of shares of Allergan before Valeant made its attempt to acquire that company.

This wasn't an overnight plummet from $262 per share to $10.50; it's been a long, slow death, even as CEO Joe Papa insists that Valeant is in the midst of transformation and turnaround.

But none of those losses come close to Ackman's Valeant Pharmaceuticals Intl Inc. The shares remained unchanged during the quarter. Shares of the Company are trading below their 50-day moving average by -16.91%. The company said on Monday that it was expanding into the home services market. Valeant Pharmaceutical (NYSE:VRX), Tilly's (NYSE:TLYS), and Pandora Media (NYSE:P) were among the worst performers. As of December 31, the company's long-term debt totaled almost $30 billion, and its interest expense to finance that debt was over $1.8 billion. The firm earned $2.40 billion during the quarter, compared to analyst estimates of $2.34 billion. Valeant Pharmaceuticals Intl had a negative net margin of 22.17% and a positive return on equity of 43.81%.

Its sales stood at 1.20% a year on average in the period of last five years. The current consensus recommendation provided by covering analysts is 3.00.
