A.J. Noronha of Desai Capital Management presented his in-depth investment thesis on Mallinckrodt (US: MNK) at Best Ideas 2019.

Thesis summary:

Mallinckrodt meets the key criteria A.J. looks for in an investment: (i) significant discount to intrinsic value; (ii) strong margins, which demonstrate operational excellence; (iii) strong cash flow and a low price to cash flow multiple; and (iv) a significant price discount to book value. Risks include revenue concentration, pricing pressure, and political or legal pressure.

A.J. considers the overall risk-reward tradeoff as attractive at recent prices. The stock recently traded at ~$19 per share, roughly half of the 52-week high of ~$37 per share.
