Controversial Questcor Still Looks Like A Buy

Questcor (QCOR) investors have had quite the ride over the past year. In addition to positive clinical data, the company has seen encouraging success in expanding its business in nephrology and rheumatology, but investors will not soon forget the nearly two-thirds dive that the stock took on word that Aetna (NYSE:AET) was essentially dropping coverage on the company's only product.

There's no doubt that Questcor is a risky stock. All of the company's revenue comes from a single product that is off-patent (but very hard to manufacture) and the company has no pipeline to speak of. Even so, the shares appear undervalued with relatively little downside at present.

Q4 Gives A Glimpse Of The New, Better, Questcor
