Questcor Demolishes the Short-Sellers

Questcor and its controversial flagship drug Acthar have come under fire from short sellers. The drug's many grandfathered indications and high pricing have made it an easy target as bears wait for a cheap competitor or insurer pushback. But they forgot one thing -- unless or until that happens, Questcor is a moneymaking machine.
