It's not up on flu hype. It's up because now is the best chance to buy it at a discount. There will be periodic profit taking, but it will continue to stair-step up until the first week in February (when the first of a year of amazing comp figures are released), then SUPER-ZOOOOOOOOMMMMM!!!
We were in a Walgreen's yesterday to pick up a nonprescription drug. The price shocked us. We went to Walmart (which we seldom do) and paid 30% LESS for the same thing, same brand, same strength. I might have to rethink my position on WAG. I bought it for the sake of diversification. Might just take my $$$ profit and run!
