I e-mailed Walgreens about the web site, here is
website will be re-launched by the end of October. You
will be able to order new and refill prescriptions,
have access to your personal password protected
prescription file, and review health content provided by Mayo
Clinics. Furthermore, in the spring of 2000 you will be
able to purchase the full array drugstore sundries
online at Walgreens.
Thank you for taking the time
to write to Walgreens.

Who cares when the website debuts? Will it affect
Probably not! Investors want. COM's.
Their thinking is that WAG doesn't have an E-site so
they are not up to par. They have this mentality that
WAG is now an Internet concern and they have NO
ONLINE STORE yet! Ever since the debut of online
pharmacies WAG has LAGGED. Just wait 3 weeks. 35 by dec. 45
by mid summer given we have no recession. I think
they may have some more surprises to be announced with
the E-site. Stay tuned! Can you say CUTTING EDGE?
Impatience has cost me a bundle in other stocks and I'm on

has already been factored into the stock price,
including earnings that were reported Monday. Don't look
for any big upswings until the market turns bullish
agian. Internet site WILL NOT effectuate a stock
increase. But stay long and you should be ok.
that is killing Wags stock, its the market. With
all the great
stocks to pick, why would an
investor or a fund manager want a stock in its portfolio,
that has been heading south for 7 months.
yourself, I am long on Wags and am very disappointed in its
performance this year. Sure we have made money in the past
but each year is a new ball game. From its high of 33
& 15/16ths, we are off about 30%. What this means
to all investors is that we have lost almost 1/3 of
our position, and for those of us who have held the
stock over the years, this could represent a very
significant loss. For example, if you had 150,000 worth of
stock at the split, you now have approximately 105,000
As far as management is concerned, their
concern is not for US but rather for the losses that they
are personally incurring. You'll notice that not many
shares have been bought by the brass in this
And finally, I don"t think the internet pharmacies
are doing squat. There is much hoopla, but not much
business. So the 64 dollar question is, if the record
earnings didn't help the stock, what makes you think wags
new internet site will make any difference.
It's that INTERNET HEARD Mentality that is
killing Walgreen's. I've owned WAG for 6 years and have
tripled my value through splits. That's over 50% per
year! As soon as the INTERNET GEEKS see that Walgreen's
online site is FIRST RATE, they will HEARD back to WAG
the other ONLINE PHARMACIES. Walgreen's MGT will see
to it that they "WAG the INTERNET GEEKS" and the
stock will soon rise. WAG's MGT is very sensitive to
WAG's stock value.
