    Market Chatter: Express Scripts CEO Wants Walgreen Contract Renewal: Wall Street Journal 05/23 11:12 AM



    11:12 AM EDT, 05/23/2012 (MidnightTrader) -- Express Scripts (ESRX:$52.541,0$-1.069,0-1.99%) CEO George Paz told the Wall Street Journal that he would "love to do a deal with Walgreen (WAG:$30.94,00$-0.66,00-2.09%) " to revive their contract, which expired a few months ago, "if they're willing to offer rates in line with everybody else."

    • "Walmarts, service clerk ask's customer at the check out:
      Would you like to renew you statin Script with that burger.
      Customer say's Yes, Rx refill request sent from the food checkout-clerk to MD...
      On the loud speaker, Paging: Mr. Mac Burger your Rx is now ready in Pharmacy.."

      Does it make anyone else uncomfortable when "special" people try to be funny?

    • CVS, also will feast at the July PBM
      Access party.

      Walmarts fresh community market with Scripts is the business I was thinking about.

      Walmarts, service clerk ask's customer at the check out:
      Would you like to renew you statin Script with that burger.
      Customer say's Yes, Rx refill request sent from the food checkout-clerk to MD...
      On the loud speaker, Paging: Mr. Mac Burger your Rx is now ready in Pharmacy..

      Now thats Innovation!!!!

      But at Walgreens the Clerk is still
      pushing a chocolate bar !!!

    • WMT does not have the long established foot print in neighborhoods..

      CVS will feast.

    • "12 month's have now pasted"

      "since the Esrx impassee"

      Now THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT!

    • "Independents will be able to adopt..."

      Do you REALLY think that adoption is the answer here?

      "....and pick up more business to offset lost RXs."

      Just flick the ol' "more business" switch, huh?

    • What is more interesting, is the Walgreens risk management committee including the B.O.D. allowed the C-suite this much time.
      12 month's have now pasted since the Esrx impassee and no Core Rx market share growth prospects.

      Esrx is still willing to bring Walgreens into it's network "AT The right Price".

      Keep your eye on Walmart, I believe they are in the best financial position with long term plans
      to exploit this major setback by Walgreens planners.

      There are several posted rumors on pharma boards about Walgreens pharmacists also.

      GLTA,

    • "waching this"

      "do you think these investor"

      "Sazam"

      Oozing with brilliance.

    • You asked "where do they come from"!

      I know, I know, the Deerfield Petri Dish.

      They add that Special sauce from Duande Reade and Sazam, anticipated forward losses with dollar increases!!!

      But the best line is, "the wmt,rad,krogers are waching this with interest as they know what is going on".
      Just to inform your remedial student, all of the 60,000 Rx providers are watching this as the Walbeans loses it customer base and 5.3 billion dollars in revenue to these watchers!!!
      Amazing....

      big.yank do you think these investor would like to buy some Green Stamps??

    • "Take the rose colored glasses off."

      He's not saying everything is rosey, Tard. He's just explaining what's going on. Thurman evidently is unfamiliar with your chronic lack of understand of anything plainly spelled out. Keep reading it, it'll come to you.

      "First it was 80% revenue retention, than it was Flu-shot growth.along with food Deserts."

      What type of screwball argument are you trying to make here? You've listed a bunch of topics that have nothing whatsoever to do with Thurman's post. When you combine this with all the grammar errors and randomly inappropriate punctuation, I think the real you (schizo) is shining through.

      "How about the Phamacist Health benefits manager with Medicare enrolle's."

      Is this a statement of some type? Is it a pointless, meaningless question? What is it, exactly.

      "Now its the MTM pharma face to face interaction with greater compliance
      measures."

      More spastic throwing of non-related words together into a jumbled heap of nonsense.

      "rocket science"

      You're one of those idiot savants, only without the savant part.

    • the stock market doesn't think so.
