    Financial Risk upgraded:

    Walgreens walked away from its PBM contract with Express Scripts in June 2011, leading to astounding revenue loss.
    Express scripts announced it was Merging with a large PBM to reduced prescription costs and improve more costly hospital readmissions.
    Express Script(PBM) believed the Merger would be completed in June of 2012 after satisfying all Federal regulators concerns.

    This Merger could have been complete as early as Monday, however
    Express script believed the Regulators needed some more time to complete there review.
    This is the Latest update:

    The companies said they agreed with the Federal Trade Commission not to close the deal Monday, even though a 30-day waiting period required under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act had expired. The waiting period started after the companies complied with a second request for information from the FTC, and they were free to close the deal if they had not heard back from regulators by the time it expired.

    • It came out on monday and he posted on tuesday. To me thats old news and I guess it was just the "spin" that was uncalled for. Bottom line was ftc said you close that deal and your going to court and just ask at&t if thats a good idea. Esrx tucked their tail and siad yes sir and fell in line. I agree it does look like a done deal by the way the stocks are trading.

    • and this old news has now become relevant because?

      • Milo, did you look at RAD's price today??

        Cmxgen and big.yank, I don't believe are against this Company
        they are only looking at the Investment landscape and
        Strategy in this Sector, Like myself.

        If you would like to review a paper published by a PHD years ago about this.
        I would be happy to share it with you..

        Good Luck,

      • Milo this is a new update. The merger of MHS and ESRX is 99.9% certain. FTC is fine with it.

        This will make more some interesting speculation come WAG Earnings Announcement.

        Regardless of any personal bias on WAG, WAG is in trouble.

        If Caremark matches the contract by ESRX, and WAG walks away from Caremark, you might as well close up shop because you cant service 40% of the US population.

      For a Investors outlook RAD has been out-preforming Walgreens since January, Thanks Adam!!!
      And with the next impasse, it will pick up all of those MHS Rx customers, bringing this stock above its current price.
      Projections are over $2.00 a share..
      Big.Yank are you still monitoring this ???
