As Zacks reports, “in the third quarter, sales are expected to have been hurt once again by rapid erosion in sales of Copaxone, lower sales of other branded drugs, Bendeka/Treanda and ProAir, pricing erosion in the US generics business and negative currency impact due to the strengthening of the Dollar. Meanwhile, sales of the other new product Austedo are likely to have increased in the third quarter.” With this general estimate, Zacks’s ranking for this company in the stock market is #2, as buy recommendation.
