If Walgreens were in talks with NPD we would learn it with the rest of the world when WAG made an announcement. They do not leak information about companies they might be looking at. Boots Alliance which is 45% owned by WAG has a position in a Chinese drug distributor. That is the only publicly disclosed information I know of regarding WAG investing in China.
(feel like you have enough, without being over extended) then this is the sweet spot of investing. The stock will clearly be going higher. Good news flowing with increasing frequency. Let's enjoy making money. Happy Holidays to all!
Per WSJ China has already complied or is in the process. Weekend edition as mentioned earlier by a poster
You should discuss reality, since your imagination is so dull.
The day and/or the time of day reporting earnings is not a useful predictor of missing or beating earnings estimates. The estimate provided by Yahoo of $0.73/share seems quite conservative to me, considering the positive nature of the last 3 monthly revenue reports.
That's one of several assistant managers coming to the register to handle these minor issues. Almost all retailers take these matters out of the hands of cashiers to reduce fraud and abuse. That's good for everyone.
This is a much anticipated approval. The stock price has doubled in the past year with earnings essentially flat. It's a difficult call but I think it will trade down about 5% for a few days while traders lock in profits then move into the $75-$80 range.
You make a good point. Mr. Hu has always been very conservative in his comments, and his "surge" remark certainly strengthened my confidence. KNDI has been releasing more info lately so maybe we will get a press release about a significant shipment of EV's, but I'm not sure of it as we have always had to wait for earnings to find out how many EV's have been sold. We won't have another earnings report until mid-March. If we are kept in the dark until then, I can see the shorts holding the price down for a while yet.
I appreciate your insights and your philosophy. I bought KNDI for $1.27 a few years back and at a lot of other price points since. What KNDI needs now, is the same as it was then: significant EV sales followed by an acceleration in EV sales. That would make all our dreams come true. Until then, as you suggest, every sunrise moves us a little closer.
It's a little difficult to see WAG closing green today. Two reasons it's down. First, the stock commonly dips a little as we approach earnings report and then runs back up. Second, and more to the point, there is a little disappointment in the November same store sales. It was actually a pretty good report but fell short of expectations. Comparable sales were down somewhat because we had an extra weekend day this year compared to last November. Weekend days provide lower sales numbers because not many doctors are in their office writing prescriptions. Analysts could have been thrown a little because RAD reported comps almost as good as those of WAG, and the trend has been for WAG to top RAD decisively. The difference is WAG reported 30 days including 5 Saturdays, while RAD reported 35 days including 5 Saturdays. RAD reported a period with the normal balance of weekdays to weekends, while WAG reported the 30 day month exactly as it falls. No big deal, as Walgreen will soon report a very strong quarter and year. Wassom will no doubt remind analysts that the Boots purchase is going very well, and also the new deal with Amerisource is progressing on schedule. WAG is on course to trade near $100/share in 2016 as long as the economy and Obamacare progress somewhere near projections. Oops! Mentioning Obamacare doesn't inspire a lot of confidence, but that's part of WAG's future.
WAG is up more than 70% in the past year. It is trading just below it's all time high. Let it churn a little. No stock sets a new high every day. WAG does not leak earnings info.
the two most overused and inappropriately used words on message boards are "bubble" and "scam". Posts using either word without substantial explanation should be ignored.
This stock has more than tripled in the past 12 months. It has formed a nice base in the mid $80's. They just topped earnings by 50% and raised guidance. You are calling for a reversal for what reason? Oh well, freedom of speech and all that.
This company is outperforming the outperformers. Market share is way up in a rapidly growing market. Dart board remark is irrelevant.
The rumor I hear is that quite a few "finance" types were let go. Jobs going to Switzerland. Interesting rumor, but not necessarily true. True or not this sort of thing is going on in corporate America. Express Scripts demands greater efficiency. Efficiency = human suffering.
you could be right, but I will reserve judgment . wouldn't expect much buying here until late Dec & January.
