Valeant Pharmaceuticals (TSX:VRX) shares rebounded this Friday, the first time in several days.

Valeant Pharmaceuticals (TSX:VRX) shares rebounded this Friday, the first time in several days.
According to an article on CTV News:

Shares of Canada’s biggest publicly traded drug company gained nearly seven per cent at $153.96 in Friday morning trading.
That partially offset a nearly 37 per cent drop in the four prior days that wiped out $28.4 billion of Valeant’s stock market value amid unresolved questions about some of its business practices.
The rebound comes ahead of a conference call on Monday, when Valeant’s top officials plan to address and refute allegations that the company created a network of pharmacies to distribute its products and avoid the scrutiny of auditors.
Citron Research, a U.S. firm that says it examines fraudulent and over-hyped stocks, compared Valeant earlier in the week to bankrupt energy giant Enron.
Valeant (TSX:VRX) has denied the explosive, unproven allegations, and accused the firm of trying to reduce its share price — a move that could benefit traders who sell the stock “short” on the expectation they can buy it later after its value falls.
