Allergan has too much liability with Botox. The recent deaths that are supposedly connected to injections will cause more problems for Allergan. The use of Botox will continue to grow for the next year, but legal issues will drain investor confidence and pave the way for class action lawsuits.
Also...many states are now beginning to enact legislation limiting the use of Botox in medical practices only....no more day spas. Legislation will also limit injections to be performed only by a doctor, killing the current practice of nurses injecting.

3/19 - Zacks.com Hold recommended for Allgergan"Allergan shares have been under pressure lately due to safety concerns surrounding the use of botox. Botox-related issues are likely to keep the shares in check in the near-term."
