    WHAT A GREAT POST THIS WAS!

    Go team walgreen's. Wasson and company you guys rock. Controlling your costs left and right, record setting sales, and expanding this company to be market leaders in the number one market in the usa. And taking share holder value along for the ride as well. You deserve a raise, and your investors salute you.


    thanks and a well deserved tip of the hat to irunthe262! Keep up the good work!

      • "Review and understand the debt load." Hmmmm... OK, rocket scientist, let's review:

        Long term debt/cash&cash eq.:
        Walgreens - 2.3 billion/2 billion
        CVS - 8.4 billion/1 billion
        Rite Aid - 6.3 billion/100 million
        Walmart - 36 billion/8.5 billion

        This doesn't even begin to take into account the deferred long term liability of each:

        WAG - 265 million
        CVS - 3.6 billion
        RAD - 0
        WMT - 5.1 billion

        Not to mention goodwill, which will have to be written down -

        WAG - 1.4 billion
        CVS - 25 billion
        RAD - 0
        WMT - 15 billion

        So tell me, who's got the better balance sheet? If you're trading on fundamentals, this one's a no-brainer. But then again, that term describes quite a few here.

      • WAG has minimal debt.

    • Oh I agree, Wasson has had alot of work to do and has faced pressures from all angles. Having cc and stopping those mail in rebate books were very good moves. CCR is a great move, now he needs to slowly stop the coupons.

    • Thanks. And remember, don't be so brazen and try to call the bottom. If you're a buyer here, buy in increments all along this part of the chart. You'll be glad you did.
