On CAPS, 18 of the 105 members who have rated Warner Chilcott -- some 17% -- believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bears include All-Stars TSIF and greenwave3, both of whom are ranked in the top 4% of our community.

Two days ago, TSIF chimed in on Warner Chilott's big $3.1 billion buy of Procter & Gamble's (NYSE:PG) drug business:

All of the large pharmaceuticals have been plagued with trying to keep a fresh stable of drugs from which they can extract a premium as sole source. Warner may be underestimating that part of the game, and underestimating the debt load service they now have. While they gain additional markets and this is a chance for them to break out of their current low margin shell, it's unlikely the deal was worth the steep rise and a new high for Warner's stock today.

In a pitch from the same day, greenwave3 echoes that sentiment:

I can't imagine how Moody's affirmed [Warner Chilcott's] credit ratings to complete the PG Pharma purchase. They borrowed the entire amount to finance the deal, and it increased the company's debt from $800 million to $3.9 billion. I understand that the acquisition is "accretive," but they are on the clock to deliver new products when their existing patents expire in a few short years. [Warner Chilcott] is going to be busy servicing debt for a long time, and somewhere in their budget they better plan to do the R&D necessary to take their business forward. I would estimate that they've bitten off more than they can safely chew.
