The Best Investments to Hold in 2016

As usual, none of Wall Street's so-called "top strategists" in a recent Barron's survey are calling for stocks to decline in 2016. All of them are calling for the bull market to continue next year.

Their 2016 S&P 500 forecasts varied from a groupthink low of 2,100 (Goldman Sachs' David Kostin) to a groupthink high of 2,500 (Federated Investors' Stephen Auth). Most of the rest were crowded around 2,200.

My own forecast practically puts me off this chart altogether.

What Pushed Valeant Pharmaceuticals (NYSE: VRX) Stock to Finally Collapse Yesterday

On October 4, I singled out Valeant Pharmaceuticals as a deeply troubled company, one that was emblematic of just about everything that's corrupt and toxic in today's markets.

The hedge funds loved Valeant thanks to its practice of buying other drug companies using junk bond financing, firing most of their employees – and then sharply hiking the prices of the drugs to which they'd just acquired the rights.

That's an ugly business model. It came into sharp focus in September when Turing Pharmaceuticals' Martin Shkreli bragged about hiking the price of a vital drug essentially just because he could, bringing a ton of bricks in public and political wrath down on the industry's collective head.

Now, I expected VRX shares to plunge, but that ton of bricks landed harder and faster than I thought. And wave after wave of bad news – now including allegations of outright criminal behavior – brought the shares down 40% in one morning, from $148 to below $89 yesterday. The shares eventually rebounded to $118, but not for any good reason.

As you're about to see, for as far as its fallen already, this rotten company could fall a lot farther before it finally craters...
