Can you give a few examples? I suspect not. Just another basher.
In case you missed it, WAG sales (19,401MIL) beat expectations. Sales were up 5.9% and same-store sales were up 4.8%.
In fact, prescription numbers, Rx sales, and total profits were ALL up.
Looks like whatever WAG is doing is working.
Stay clear of this guy and any links his begs you to go to. It will fry your computer.
They seem to be missing. Anyone seen them????????
Profitability, 10-Q, and monthly comps are all tools used to evaluate a company's performance. If a company refuses to release a particular indicator, they're either afraid of the fallout or are hiding something.
Yeah RIGHT! That's at least a dozen congressmen who've said they were going to "introduce legislation next week" over the last 2 months to address this situation. It just doesn't seem to ever happen. When exactly IS "next week"??????????
Plus, how can you have a "BACKLASH" when nothing has happened yet?
Just another mindless, clueless, ignorant basher along with previous failures such as gayboy_fl, jeffrey_vs, yank-tard, etc.
This is the greatest thing EVER. I can't believe I waited so long to follow your advice. Thanks to you, I'm now a Billionaire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All my life problems are solved, and I owe it all to you.
P.S. How do I get this virus off my computer?
"We rate WALGREEN CO (WAG) a BUY. This is driven by several positive factors, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins."
Highlights from the analysis by TheStreet Ratings Team goes as follows:
The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 4.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 5.9%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
WALGREEN CO has improved earnings per share by 15.4% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past year. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, WALGREEN CO increased its bottom line by earning $2.56 versus $2.42 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($3.30 versus $2.56).
The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the S&P 500 and greatly outperformed compared to the Food & Staples Retailing industry average. The net income increased by 15.7% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $624.00 million to $722.00 million.
The stock has not only risen over the past year, it has done so at a faster pace than the S&P 500, reflecting the earnings growth and other positive factors similar to those we have cited here. Looking ahead, the stock's rise over the last year has already helped drive it to a level wh.....
robbsbeach, you're doing much better. Misunderstanding the topic aside, cutting and pasting helps you eliminate spelling, grammar, and punctuation mistakes. Keep working. We're all proud of your progress.
Still no intelligent responses. Bashers are trying to sidestep this question. Why doesn't CVS offer FULL DISCLOSURE?
Maybe if CVS would quit hiding their monthly comps, it's stock might soar like WAG stock.
WAG and CVS are equally volatile. So why doesn't CVS provide full disclosure by revealing monthly comps????????????????????????
Make sure you back up your computer and update your antivirus program before you follow this guy"s recommended link. VIRUS WARNING
Maybe so, but "volatility" was YOUR argument. You're using "volatility" as a euphemism for "we don't want you to sell your stock so we are keeping the monthly comps hidden."
If the volatility is the same, why not FULLY DISCLOSE monthly comps and let the investors decide?
No. Just use the same accountants they used before they started refusing full disclosure, Sherlock.
Still no good answer. We hear things like, "we don't do business that way", and " too much volatility". What kind of nonsense is that? Just show the numbers!
If "short term manipulation" equals the buying and selling of stock based upon their up-to-date performance, then that's the way it SHOULD BE. If "stable stock performance" results from keeping the investors ignorant of monthly comps, then you're setting yourself up for huge panic selling upon quarterly bomb drops.
