Joseph Papa was hired to turn Bausch Health Cos. Inc. (BHC) around. Instead, he is breaking it up. But he’s not crazy. He’s caught on to the fact that bigger isn’t always better.
You see, Bausch Health Cos. Inc. (BHC) and its subsidiary, Bausch + Lomb eye care, are two great companies, but together, they aren’t exactly chocolate and peanut butter.
Papa has realized that the only thing worse than no partnership at all is a bad partnership, so he’s letting Bausch + Lomb become its own $3.1 billion business.
This means that both companies will be free to focus on their own business models, their own specialized products, and their own target markets. It’s a move that’s going to create billions in new shareholder value.
And while I applaud the move, I think that there’s a better way to cash in on corporate spinoffs like this one.
For the past week, I’ve been telling you about a special new research project that I’ve been working on. It’s all about one of the best performing asset classes in history, one that’s turned broke college students into millionaires and has the potential to turn its next wave of big investors into billionaires.
It’s an asset that has grown almost 460,000,000% in less than a decade.

Editor's Note: These past few weeks, I've been updating you on a special research project that I've been working on. Well, now, my research is finished and it was well worth the effort. I've pinpointed a tiny company, currently trading for...
Trading volume is going to be thin today, due to the holiday, so I wanted to take this chance to say that I I am thankful for the support of my team and more importantly you the reader. I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving.
It says to stay away from investing in Chinese stocks during our trade battles with that nation.
It’s a good thing that someone forgot to give Daniel Zhang a copy.
Here’s the thing. While tariffs the U.S. imposed on some Chinese goods have slowed factory output over there, that has hardly filtered down to the nation’s thriving Web sector.
And that’s where Zhang is really shining right now. He’s the CEO of Internet giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (BABA) and just pulled off a remarkable coup.
In the first hour of the firm’s recent Single’s Day shopping bonanza Nov. 11, it brought in $13 billion. No, that’s not a misprint. Alibaba sold more goods in 60 minutes than hundreds of U.S. firms do in a year.
By contrast, that’s roughly 80% of what Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) pulled in last quarter.
