    RAD same store sales +0.5% Wag's down 7% !!!

    Well, you may see somehow low numbers for August too. But that is the only time you can be proud of your RAD .5% (wow) rise. As a matter of the fact, you may cry when September numbers come out. All the sudden, RAD is in negative territory while WAG comes up with spectacular positive numbers. Do not tell us that we did not warn you for September. May be you become a little bit wiser by selling RAD and switching to WAG, who knows.

    • Walgreens may not be gettig these custoers back, we will have to wait and see in September, but I wouldn't bank on it. I'm sure once September shows no improvement the goal post will be moved to Octiber because that is the first full month so let's just go ahead and move that goal post now.

      As for your comment 0.5% (wow) lol!!!!! That is too funny, 0.5% is a sarcastic wow, but -7 % is good and I should be switching my investment to WAGS? you need to go back to school and learn the meaning of numbers of + and minus signs.

      Also RAD had a much bigger generic impact than Walgreens so really the difference between the two is even greater. Generics give higher profit dollars.
