    • WAG at 23 is a buying point.

      I will jump in again at that point.

    • You seem to have a pretty good feel for this
      stock. I have held for 'bout 18 months. I am not so sure
      analysts are talking up the stock. The company continues
      to crank solid/great numbers, yet everytime they
      post what should be good news the stock gets hammered.
      They get a modest upgrade and the stock slides. They
      just reported (I think?) pretty good sales figures for
      the month and they have one of their biggest drops in
      a while. I know buy and hold is the way to go, but
      this slide is very frustrating. Should Walgreens buy
      back a chunk of its shares? That might get some upward
      movement going, especially if insiders feel the stock is
      undervalued. If they are waiting for people to stop throwing
      money at tech stocks it could be a long wait. Do you
      think Walgreens could go the way of Coke and Gilette,
      which overnight went from big-time growth stocks to big
      time drags.
      It's a real head scratcher, that's for
      sure.

    • If you noticed today WMT reported same
      store
      sales 6.1% they were upgraded and the stock has
      gone
      up around 2 1/2, WAG has also reported
      great
      numbers and is down around 1. I think
      WAG is a good
      stock don't get me wrong the
      problem as I see it is
      that WAG PR department
      does not promote the stock
      or the company or
      anything else with the WAG
      name in it. If the
      company itself would cheerlead
      like some of the
      people on this board do maybe we
      could get a
      upgrade or two and get this stock
      moving in the
      right direciton. I may be off base but
      I read
      other boards where companies keep
      pumping out
      good propaganda and it seems to be
      noticed. This company is just frustrates me that we have
      all this good news, new stores, no debt,
      good
      sales and the public relations dept. sits
      on their
      hands. I have sent them the same
      complaint and they
      don't even respond. Generic
      news releases month
      after month are not going to get much notice.

    • I'm not sure if any of you know the history of
      Walmart. Back in 1995-1997, WMT virtually stagnated in the
      20-30 range, just like WAG. WMT was back and forth for
      a few years. This is called
      consolidating.

      Now, since 1997, WMT, which is now at 51, has more
      than tripled from it's base of 20-30 that it was at in
      1995-97. This is adjusted for the split (pre0split, WMT
      would be at 102).

      WMT consolidated for 2-3
      years, had great management, a visionary strategy, and
      the patient investors were rewarded. WAG has the same
      characteristics like WMT, and has great demographics to boot.
      Just stay long and in the times that WAG goes down to
      the low 20's like it is now, buy more.

    • What a nice post. Some things are doing better,
      others not; that's the nature of the beast. A quick
      story; When I look out my window I see a COMS facility,
      too bad I didn't scoop them up last fall. But do I
      kick myself over it? nope.

      One thing I do know
      is that my automatic quarterly investment in WAG
      will happen shortly (money already taken from account)
      and with the price beat down I will be getting more
      shares.

      My best wishes to you as well.

    • I consider you to be one of the classier people
      in the chat room and I for one would not consider
      you to be a cheerleader---you state facts and live in
      the present---others here only talk about past
      performance and talk about the future with their hearts and
      not their brains...hopefully your other stocks are
      perfroming better than WAG....best of health and trading to
      you.........oh yeah for the cheerleaders: as I write this we are
      trading under $25 today.

    • Sorry your local WAG is having so much
      trouble.

      I agree with what you say about growing pains.
      However I think back to many companies that had similar
      problems not too long ago such as WMT and HD, and they
      came through pretty well. I think WAG will be just
      fine (uh oh I guess I am cheerleading now :) ).

    • I'm a long-term holder and don't moan, kvetch, or
      belly-ache...USUALLY. I have seen the latest same-store earnings, but
      the impression I get from my neighborhood WAG is
      diametrically opposite. My gut feeling is that, if local
      observation translates to nat'l outcome, then this company
      has some problems.
      My local pharmacy has either
      lost or short-filled rx the last six [6] times. Every
      time I go there there are new
      pharmacists/assistants.
      I think the co. is concentrating on new-store
      openings and forgetting about existing locations. There's
      plenty of competition out there, including
      internet.
      It is my belief that Wall st has recognized the co.
      has growing pains and is having problems retaining
      pharmacists, and it's only a matter of time before the numbers
      catch up w/ reality.
