    • It's a strong possibility by 2016. G. Wassom has predicted revenues of $130 billion for 2016. By then WAG will own 100% of Boots Alliance, and will have exercised options to buy 16% of ABC at a nice discount bringing their total share of ABC to 23%. Margins will expand due to better buying power and expansion of generics as a % of the rx business. ESRX will continue to pressure margins, but at a slower rate than WAG will expand them. The health clinics should thrive and increase their numbers under Obamacare. Obamacare also gets credit for expanding the prescription drug market. By then international expansion will mean a lot more than Europe. Asia and Latin America are targeted. If everything (including things we are not yet aware of) goes according to plan, WAG could trade considerably higher than $100, but for now $100 seems like a reasonable expectation.
