    Sales for may

    Question: The decease in sales could include of course the loss of express scripts and it would also include the number of generics that have come across. So much of the decrease would each factor affect the this decrease?

    • I don't own WAG, but I am considering it. The ESRX problem is big, because drug stores use the RX sales to drive traffic for the front end where they make higher margins. ALSO the longer they wait to settle the more customers switch to Walmart or CVS and many won't switch back. However, If they settle the stock will get a pop and this is the type of company you want in a bad market. Right now if you don't think they will settle soon it's a weak buy. If they settle a quick 10% pop.
