tell me the market isn't fixed, look at todays volume .....up 3%.,,,,,,,,,,,,,then a dividend increase announcement..................I suppose its just a coincidence
keeping the stores busy,busy,busy. people catch a cold and fear they have swine flu,so off to the DR they go. get their rx and off to cvs or walgreens...i bet it will be record setting quarter at both companies
rite aid is already struggling,dont you think this would hurt them that much more? if rite aid finally gives up and closes half their stores, cvs is the one that would be the big winner, not walmart. there is a reason people go to cvs, rite aid and walgreens---shopping at walmart is a painful experience.......
if walmart has caused you to lose money in cvs, walgreens or rite aid, you can do something about it. if you have their stock sell it, if you shop there dont. it really simple, if the tens of thousands of people that either work or have stock in theses companies stopped going to walmart and shopped at the drug stores instead, maybe they'd get the idea.
have you not seen cvs same store sales lately? they are huge and getting bigger. gross margin expansion this quarter due to generic, plavix,zocor and zoloft being launched.....you'll see
anyone hear if we are getting options this year? every year it is getting put off to the next year. the bonus structure sucks and we are not the best paid. about time to move on
i can only speak for myself, but my store has been much busier since medicare-d started. maybe just a coincidence, but we'll see if it continues. looks like people might be filling rx's they would'nt have before.
i think cvs is ok but, more volume brings more grumpy customers and that is getting very old. its getting to the point that they cant pay me enough to do this job. feels like a well paid burger flipper
metadate is available now, i work in a pharmacy and the numbers of rx's for metadate cd is growing fast, should help earnings, it competes with concerta (alza) and will compete with ritalin La when available
