Valeant Pharmaceuticals International changed its name to Bausch Health (BHC), but Piper Jaffray's David Amsellem thinks the stock is a sell no matter what you call it. Amsellem reiterated an Underweight rating on Bausch on Monday, writing that the while the name change "refreshingly consigns the Valeant name to the dustbin of pharma history," and while that may help the company put some missteps behind it, he still has "myriad concerns regarding the commercial portfolio and pipeline." He writes that it's still too soon to say when and where Bausch's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization will trough. The recent tentative approval of a generic form of the non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug Apriso only serves to further highlight the company's "significant exposure to loss of exclusivities." Moreover, Amsellem writes that data points about new drug launches, specifically inflammatory treatment Siliq and eye drug Vyzulta "are suggestive of underwhelming traction." Given this, along with the company's exposure to mature assets with "questionable durability and leverage ratios that are still very much an eyesore" he thinks Bausch's valuation of 10 times enterprise value to Ebitda is still too high.
A strong first-quarter sent the pharmaceutical company's shares northward, but this positive momentum is starting to fade after a key regulatory setback.
Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX), now known as Bausch Health Companies (BHC), generated revenues of $2 billion in the first quarter compared to $2.1 billion in the first quarter of 2017, reflecting a 5% YoY (year-over-year) decline.

A controversy over massive price increases, along with other scandals, wrecked Valeant Pharmaceutical International Inc.’s reputation as well as its stock price in recent years. Valeant (VRX) is using two techniques to raise prices on one of its best-selling drugs: it has increased the size of the package of its diarrhea medication, called Xifaxan, by 43%, from 42 pills to 60, and it is charging about 6% more per milligram, according to an analyst note by Mizuho’s Irina Koffler. The larger packaging has helped boost sales volumes, Koffler said.

However, Mizuho's Irina Koffler argues that the selloff is overdone, as she believes that Xifaxan, the traveler's diarrhea and irritable-bowel-syndrome treatment, is Valeant's key growth driver, rather than its dermatology portfolio. She reiterated a Buy rating on Valeant Friday and raised her price target by $4 to $31.

With it, Sprout developed Addyi, dubbed "female Viagra," to treat hypoactive sexual desire disorder in premenopausal women ( 10 percent of all women suffer from HSDD).
Valeant Pharmaceuticals Intl Inc. (TSX:VRX)(NYSE:VRX) may have hit a stumbling block with one of the Significant Seven, but long-term investors should stay the course.
Shares of Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (VRX) started the week off on a down note, on news that the company received a Complete Response Letter from the Food and Drug Administration concerning its plaque psoriasis treatment Monday, and the shares are falling again today. Cantor Fitzgerald argued that the letter wasn't anything for investors to worry about, and today H.C. Wainwright analyst Raghuram Selvaraju argues much the same thing, even if he has a Neutral rating on the stock. Selvaraju writes that although the psoriasis drug, Duobrii, was one of the "Significant Seven" products around which he saw the "new" Valeant would be built, he--much like Cantor--hasn't included sales from the treatment in his model for 2018.
