To my way of thinking Wag is one of the top company's to own. Same store sales are always up, beating their competition, they are opening a new store every working day in America with a goal of 3000 stores in 2000 and 6000 stores by 2010, and unlike their competion, they have absolutely zero debt. They don't buy beatup stores in strip mauls but build new ones that are state of the art all linked together by computor. You can fill a prescription in Chicago, go on vacation to Florida and get a refill without a problem. Most importantly they are making money
I don't see any impressive traffic at walgreens stores and they do annouce these 9-10% up sales. Something is wrong. More info please.
I work there, and we keep lines backed up. We can't keep enough registers going. Now, it is true that I work in one of the busy districts, and you may live in an area where it is not so busy, but your description does not fit what I see every day.
Why are the insiders selling so big?
My guess would be the exercising of stock options that are then sold to generate income.
