Valeant Pharmaceuticals, one of the most popular stocks in 2015, saw its stock price soar to more than US$260 a share at one point. But after news of a government investigation, the stock came crashing down. Investors were outraged as fund managers lost billions. On Friday, Valeant's share closed at a low of US$24.
