Drum roll, please. Yank is almost never wrong. Big admission about to be revealed...
I inferred that the outside investor was the biggest loser in the WAG scenario. How could I have been so blinded from the real truth?
Yes, the outside investor has been totally screwed over by WAG's "guidance" and disgraceful S/P return for outside investors. Over more than a half-decade of paltry S/P returns and almost insultingly small dividends.
So... who has suffered more?
Why, obviously it is the Walgreen's pharmacy CUSTOMER... who has overpaid for prescriptions, had most filled by Tech's barely earning the hourly minimum and, in many cases, paid dearly for misfills and, then, met the Corporate Goliath denying everything.
But, fear not, righteous Americans. The problem is self-correcting, over time. The consumer masses will MARCH from the Walgreen's counter to the Wal*Mart or other counter that serves them with dignity, service, accountability and the best prices.
