  • Walgreens stock promoters are engaged in a campaign to dismiss Walgreens the major financial screw-up over the last 5 years including a 1.1 billion dollar income projected error for 2016..
    Walgreens Board of Directors have been quoted in the Wallstreet Journal... as saying they where unaware of this error... and now is using social media to dismiss this lack of over site ... LOL
    As you can judge from some recent posters avoiding to discuss this issue..

    Sentiment: Sell

  • Now that is one meeting that needs to Occur on TV's CNBC, I would pay to hear Carl tell this CEO he needs to leave the Corporation as he has driven over a financial cliff.
    Seeing as this TV meeting will not happen, at least Carl can do is give us a picture from his perspective of the Hertz meeting.

    Another day of Non-compliance by board of HTZ

    The SEC could suspend trading for Hertz, this would speed up the financial statement release..
    Unless there is Accounting Fraud then Hertz needs to call the SEC and the DOJ in.

  • The idea that a billion-dollar forecasting error was solely the fault of two individuals, Crawford and Miquelon ,takes away any credibility Walgreens may have enjoyed.
    Walgreens CFO walked away with $3.2 million in severance pay plus a $1.2 million performance bonus for this major Error.
    This occurred As Walgreens Board of Directors was out and about meeting with the investor community saying they had no Idea!!!

    Sentiment: Sell

    Morgan Stanley rerated hertz selling price.
    Several Hedge funds including Icahn offshore holdings moved into buying and shorting this stock, it has already been disclosed the accounting books have been cooked for over 3 years.
    Its amazing that anyone posting here thinks Htz will recover to a higher selling price soon and the CEO was unaware what was going on.

    The Banks, Mutual funds, and pension have billions out in loans to this company and are bailing out this sinking ship now, but in the end there is a hole in the earnings and for that reason it will be priced much lower..

    A question we all should be asking is why has the SEC has not suspended this stock from trading as Hertz cannot release earnings..

    Is a disinformation poster, As Moody's credit rating agency stated, Walgreens accounting practices are to be reviewed by the credit rating agencies as Walgreens need additional debt financing for the 2nd step in the Alliance Boots purchase.
    Managements revenue projections were restated by 1 billion dollars, the CFO was dismissed, so this should call's into question Walgreens Income and Cash flow operating assumptions.
    Projections... are the financial strategy in terms of anticipated cash flow and these credit agencies are now faced with a new CFO and a retained CEO who is not in charge of Corporate strategy..
    If I was lending Walgreens billions, I and others would ask what is Walgreens ability to restore it credit ratings with operational changes announced every few months.

    Take the $4.00 with the stock offering from a Pharmacutical Company that has a sales and marketing department before these patents run out....
    Just some solid advice...from a very long term holder..

  • Well Walgreens manipulated forward earning then pulled it down, now the Walgreens Board of Destruction approved a 3 billion dollar stock buybacks when they did not even meet earnings..

    Spending investors money like Drunken Drivers at a bankers bailout hearing,.

    True, the CEO is in contract to come out with a gangster rap video called marksman Markey killing main street.
    And the SEC are the backup singers..

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    lastly from Walgreens last announcement the more Drugs Walgreens sells the more money they will lose...

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • This is beyond the pale when Htz can't even produce its financial results for the last 3 years.
    The Board better have a lot of liability insurance as they are approving to spend other Investors money based on a company that can't release earnings..

    Did hertz CEO leave the USA yet...I think he applied for a switzerland citizenship to avoid
    facing a lawsuite..

    Sentiment: Sell

    That will include stock in the buyout company...

  • robbsbeach by robbsbeach Aug 26, 2014 11:35 AM Flag

    So it has been reported that Walgreens CEO was paid 14 million dollars last year in base pay, options and stock warrants including benefits...
    All this for leading a executive team to misstating forward revenues by 1 Billion dollars..
    Geez wouldn't you like to find a job like this, where you can be a screw up and receive 10's of millions...

    I wonder how much more he would paid by bringing this company in bankruptcy

    Financials released, good luck on that happening without the SEC moving on this ..
    This CEO must have as many contact's inside the SEC and NYSE as Bernie Madoff.. as this Stock is still allowed to trade with no financial information released to value this company..
    I could have a valuation of zero...and we just don't know!!!

    I see Walgreens going to THE selling price of 55.00 as the Large Investment funds need to rotate there holding to account for the projected earnings..
    Walgreens is missing by 1 billion its just is time for these funds to adjust to the new reality.

  • Buyout offering on the table.
    DSCO's products and products in clinical trails has value to a established drug manaufacturers.
    So what is the buyout price??

    It will come that I don't doubt as the Buyout offering on the table.
    DSCO's products and products in clinical trails has value to a established drug manaufacturers.
    So what is the buyout price??

    It will come that I don't doubt as the world largest mutual fund the Vanguard group is now a large investor

    Why CEO not fired yet?

    by futuresrnow Aug 26, 2014 10:17 AM
    robbsbeach robbsbeach Aug 26, 2014 10:30 AM Flag

    The CEO is also chairman of the board and will not allow this on the boards meeting agenda..
    As the stock heads lower Hertz on accounting issues, many lenders will call for higher borrowing costs only then will the CEO's head with a Fl. Orange in his mouth be served to common stock Investors..

    Get the barbeque ready before you buy this pig..


    Sentiment: Sell

  • The Drug store America use to trust just fired its CFO and retired its President of Pharmacy services, and they clearly stated they will not reincorporate overseas to capture tax revenue paid in the USA.
    Walgreens is losing operational advantages to its competitors also, as it sold off its PBM, HQ ownership and its USA wholesale warehousing operations for prescription medications.
    Walgreens intent to replace this lost advantage with Healthy living with nail polish, lipstick, cigarettes and Blue moon beer sales as they cuts operational spending by 1 billion dollars.

    Corporate earnings projected lower by 1 billion dollars going into 2015.

    I doubt Walgreens can hold this price of 60.00 dollars a share!!!

    So you think Theranos is a strong buy???, but Walgreens instead chose to invest into AmeriSource Bergan, the Drug Wholesaler.
    Are you thinking that a pharmacist can interpret Theranos lab results, with-0ut a MD license and then offer medical advice to a pharmacy customer??
    Or that a ill person walks into Walgreens and has the Pharmacist order lab Tests?? Yea ok, your meds are in the

    And 1 billion dollars in prescriptions payment reductions are the former CFO fault..Hehe
