Look at the short in AMD 120mil. That sure is a lot of fire wood with just 500mil in the float. Compared to RAD 900 mil in float and 30mil short. Both will do well but I believe AMD has another great pop up it's sleeve. This xbox and playstation should really boost the next quarter. Price target Dec. 2013 $ 3.95 and $ 5.95 Dec. 2014. I still like my RAD
Sentiment: Strong Buy
For an employee, you are not too well tuned in. On the other hand, you could be a middle level exec that has nothing better to do than try to find out who is spilling the beans . That's based on a fact . Jack!
I think that the company buying back its shares. The share repurchase program is in place until 2015. 690,000 shares were purchased after hours today ~ over 40 million dollars worth at today's closing price.
You must be kidding! Walgreens has never done well with any store over 15,000 sq ft of selling space. Not likely they all of a sudden have a new location strategy. thought the idea of paid pumpers was a waste of money. I may change my mind if anyone on this board actually buys into the notion that this store is anything other than an exception to a pretty well thought out location strategy.
Cvs supporters what happened to that $10 per share price advantage. Wags erased it and now is higher
are you talking about Deerfield or stores? Deerfiled, definately need to trim the fat. They have cut store personnel to the point where no one is there to help customers. Not seen or heard anything in my area of "exit packages"
Not getting much info but it sounds like at least a couple of dozen higher paid employees were asked to leave. Many of them got an ok severance package. Hard to understand how a million or two is going to make much difference to the bottom line but it is clear management is trying to outsource everything it can. Could be that just makes sense. It has taken Walgreens a very long time to adopt a screw the employees, worry about the shareholders attitude. As sad as that may be it could be the right thing to do - if you are a shareholder. On the other hand , as time goes by there are going to be about 180,000 employees that wish a Walgreen was still running the company.
The definite knowledge that some people have lost their jobs in the past few weeks.
Are you denying that it has happened?
A couple years ago Walgreens announced that they were "re-wiring" for growth.
Many, were offered an exit package to leave. If they didn't take it, they risked being terminated without the benefit of any such exit package.
I don't know if the recent terminations were still part of that re-wire.
It's sad to hear of people losing jobs and it's a damn shame that corporations
have no conscience about how it effects people.
