There is not going to be a deal. we were told at store level that wags was moving forward without esrx. a proposal to cover the militry was presented to esrx, and that was rejected by esrx. lots of hour cuts are already planned for stores come the first of the year. If the esrx/medco deal goes through lots of the wags loss will be covered, and another contract deal will have to be negotiated with the merger. bottom line is that wags wanted more money, and the execs at this stupid company got shown the door. the dec 21 conference call will be a very important one. lots of downgrades in the past month, maybe more on the way once wags lowers guidance for the following quarters. Up to 20% of scripts in some stores will be gone, depending on the market.
