Just look at the job Walgreen execs (and, of course, Wag employees) are doing with the sales and earnings comps of Walgreens. Look at how they are eating up the competition.
Then look at the overpaid Walmart execs leading their company down a path of ruin.
You must be on the right meds today or that book (not a comic book) you read had a profound influence on you. You are actually showing a better sense of humor. You've actually made me chuckle twice today. That's the first time you've had that impact on me, ever. See, bananaramarug told you that you would feel better once you fessed up to being the two of you. I hope you continue to do well despite the negativity. On top of that, I take back anything everyone said bad about you. But if you get off the meds again, then I'll have to take back my take-back. It seems there is a little human(ity) inside you after all.
Hi back to you Neggy,
Hard to say about todays action, Wag can sometimes seem like a defensive play and that might drive price up but I was reading one report saying the whole market may be bearish the next couple months, who knows.
Yes we like pizaa "alot", I'm glad we work making it.
Do you think that Wag executives have a magic wand that controls the stock market?
Walgreens is turning out record sales and profits month after month, quarter after quarter, year after year, decade after decade.
Walgreens is also expanding aggressively to meet future demand and to keep the record profits rolling in for years to come.
As has been stated previously, Wag stock has risen almost 18,000% since 1980.
I'd say they're doing a pretty darn good job.
The funny thing is, when CRWIII was CEO, he almost felt guilty when he received raises in his salary (the board decides). Even as WAG climbed past other fortune 1000 companies over the years, his salary was much lower compared to companies the same size, sales etc...
To this day, the Executive Salaries are far below what similar companies (in sales, profits) are.
Just shows you who is on executive row. These people have more than a career at WAG, they have their heart and soul in Walgreens.
I would like to see their salaries go up to more competitive levels, not for competitive reasons, but more for "pats on the back".
Well said, Manta. Always good to hear from you. Your unique perspective adds much needed class to this board. Hope all is going well with you.
Couple of questions if you don't mind.
In your travels around the windy city, do you ever run into Mr. Canning? If so, how is he doing?
Do you think that KW will one day take the reins of this great company?
If you're too busy to answer, I understand.
Have a great day, and come back often.
I want some of what you have been smoking or are you just stupid?
What about the share/bag holder, when will he be rewarded for his patience?
Typical relative of an greedy executive.
YOU "r" OUT OF YOUR MIND! The EXECS. @ WAG. are no more than average, greedy, run - of - mill empty suits. Anyone could decide to build hundreds of stores a year using the shareholders "should have been" dividends. The shareholders are getting pennies while the execs. get millions; TODAY! Enough has become enough.
PS: I don't work at Wag., never have, I don't, currently, own Wag. and I sure would not buy it. It becomes a buy at $35.
