I have just discovered a site that presents a
five day stock projection for Walgreen Co. Look Ahead

seen quite as clear cut a pattern on how long it must
stay above $50. When the stock is slowly rising with
few declines along the way, it splits quickly. When
the stock skyrockets with many drops thrown in, they
wait longer to see if it truly is going to remain
above $50. I would predict that if it stays above $50
for 2 weeks, we will hear an announcement.
Look at a 5 year chart of this conservative

most boring stock has made me more money than Intel,
Apple, Compaq and all of the other rollercoaster

luck to all longs.
A refreshing message on oe of these boards is a
rare thing. Dont post to often but couldnt resist. I
buy and hold Walgreens most of the last ten years
never sold a share . Probably just give it to my kids.
Hang in there I have no doubts you will be a good
investor I can see it already!

sell low...maybe I need to change my prayers to the

me to do....I bought dell at 62 sold in a panic at
48 and realized how stupid it was to panic about
dell...bought back at 50....now just holding..no margin...so I
dont worry about calls...someday I hope to mature into
a good investor
