Learn what the indicators are telling the analyst about ACT.

Insights On Matter:

  • low generic competition risk

From Down To Top:

The fact that puts Actavis on top of other companies in the same industry is that it has always focused on the unique opportunistic acquisitions and launch of generic drugs. It initially started as an ordinary generic drug manufacturer, but has turned into one of the best and most sought after specialty pharmaceutical companies over these years.

If the position of Actavis’ in United States a few years ago is taken into consideration, then one can see that it was nothing more than a U.S.-centric generic drug manufacturing company with very limited global exposure. Other players like Mylan and TEVA had a lot more exposure on the international level than Actavis plc (NYSE:ACT), but still it outperformed them within a few years. Actavis has executed four major acquisition transactions worth $105 billion since 2012. These transactions have not only improved its expertise in the generic industry, but also established it as a major player in gastroenterology, women’s health, aesthetics, ophthalmology and central nervous system.

Experts claim that the future market conditions will favor Actavis in carrying out its operations. It can be a good choice for those who want to bet their money on something that can offer consistent returns over the long period.
