    Cvs vs WAG

    CVS is about 22% of all scripts filled.
    WAG is 15% or so of all scripts filled.

    At one point in Chicago, there weren't any CVS stores. WAG dominated this market, now however CVS has taken significant market share.

    You are correct in your assessments. RX Profit per script is probably in line with other pharmacies. WAG should get good purchasing deals with their market share.

    I can average 13/dollars a script pretty easy and if I shopped around I bet I can get it to 15.

    I think the question is why analysts prefer CVS and I have always felt that when you look at only these two companies, CVS has always positioned itself for growth.
