    • So if WAG hits 40---- an FYI as this works against the Alliance Boots deal....

      The Rising Cost of Alliance Boots. For Walgreen’s shareholders, the 2-step deal structure will strike like a thunderball. The floor on the purchase prices means that Alliance Boots’ shareholders benefit from upside at Walgreen, but Walgreen’s shareholders lose if Alliance Boots performs poorly. For every $1 dollar increase in Walgreen’s share price above $31.96, the cost of the deal goes up by $144.3 million. At yesterday’s closing price of 36.36, the deal’s total cost has gone up by $635 million—two-thirds of the total estimated synergies between now and 2016. Time will tell if the world is enough (or not) for the company.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell
