How's your day going?

Standard & Poor’s said it may lower its debt ratings for Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. deeper into junk after the drugmaker slashed its earnings and revenue forecast for the year and warned that a delay in filing its annual report may breach debt agreements. Valeant’s B+ rating has been placed on negative credit watch reflecting “the preponderance of risks we see in the near term that could further weaken creditworthiness,” S&P said in a statement Tuesday.
