Walgreens treading water all year and likely to continue into the near future. For all you sycophants who rationalize the dismal performance of Walgreens good luck (Rite Aid's problems, stock split, insider selling, etc. ad naseum). For the rest of us who expect a good company to outpace its peers (like an excellent company should do) a huge disappointment. Maybe next year it will get back on track. But then again, who knows, they sure don't do a very good job of conveying their message to the investing public. Has anyone read anything about their website since it was released. You would think they would be pumping it up. I haven't seen a thing.
Thank goodness most of the stocks that I own that are top of the line have shown it through stock price appreciation.
