If Walgreens were in talks with NPD we would learn it with the rest of the world when WAG made an announcement. They do not leak information about companies they might be looking at. Boots Alliance which is 45% owned by WAG has a position in a Chinese drug distributor. That is the only publicly disclosed information I know of regarding WAG investing in China.
The day and/or the time of day reporting earnings is not a useful predictor of missing or beating earnings estimates. The estimate provided by Yahoo of $0.73/share seems quite conservative to me, considering the positive nature of the last 3 monthly revenue reports.
That's one of several assistant managers coming to the register to handle these minor issues. Almost all retailers take these matters out of the hands of cashiers to reduce fraud and abuse. That's good for everyone.
Earnings to be reported on Friday Dec.20th in the AM...Never like to see earnings reported on a Friday before the weekend..Stock is not acting well. Hope I'm wrong and they report earnings above the estimate....JMHO
