    compare WAG to RAD

    info taken from yahoo profile screens.

    RAD is a sleeping giant and WAG is priced for perfection.


    WAG -- 1 billion 20 million total shares outstanding, 26.6 billion TTM sales, $38.68 share price, 3619 stores, price/sales ratio = 1.50; market cap + debt= ~ 40 billion dollars




    RAD -- 515 million total shares outstanding, 15.2 Billion TTM sales, $2.58 share price, 3497 stores, Price/sales ratio = .08, market cap + debt = 5.4 billion dollars.


    so WAG is valued at ~800% RAD's value (market cap + debt) while doing only 75% more sales from roughly the same number of stores..

    • How can CVS and RAD be operationally the same when CVS earns a profit of $1.50/share and RAD loses nearly that much (FY 2002)? CVS does almost double the sales/sq. ft.

    • Now that's funny! Without even noting that RAD's debt has increased by close to $.5B since last summer, it is ludicrous to give any value to an "Enterprise" that has at least 3 times its' market cap in debt. And to knock WAG because it has basically NO DEBT and only market cap? Of course in this ridiculous comparison we can't allow value for profits over losses and a stronger and stronger balance sheet over a weaker and weaker balance sheet. If this ridiculous contortion of reality makes you sleep better at night, so be it.

      >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

      Only 75% more sales than rad. Gee "ONLY". when you consider that wag has approx 700 stores under 2 years old...when comparing "like" rad and wag stores you are probably looking at "ONLY" 100 percent more sales for stores 4 years or older.(as most rads are 4 or older).

    • Good comparison. You are a smart indivisual.

    • WAG can make a healthy profit month after month. RAD can take a healthy loss month after month. WAG has a effecient operation leading the sector. RAD has the worst operations results in the sector. WAG's CEO knows the way. Miller is Wrongway Goldfarb. The market has priced WAG and RAD right where they should be.
