Short report is out and RAD short have been reduced again multi yr lows 25mil and institutional holdings are mlti yr high 57% Just remember both companies are great ist just RAD is undervalued and will continoue to go up til fair value $8 and WAG will slowly drift down.
If WAG or CVS were going to buy RAD, it would have happened a few years ago. Neither company could get approval from the Feds. Antitrust rules would force them to divest of the majority of stores. It wouldn't make sense. WAG's focus has moved to international expansion. CVS will follow suit. A private investor group might try to buy RAD, but it would take a lot of guts to buy a chain with so many underperforming stores and almost $6B debt, then try to take market share from CVS and WAG. There's easier ways to make a buck. My guess is RAD will either sell off the underperformers and try to make it as a smaller company or they will continue to struggle with massive debt and bankruptcy looming.
WAG is a fine co.
You are correct and I see your points. The charts show a strong move into RAD. There are just a few days left til institutions have to show holding. I the last several days I see there %is increasing rapidly.
Many quarter have passed with over the top result from RAD. I am glad and lucky I picked a winner. early and stayed the course.
