    Rite Aid purchases “stuff” from producers and stocks their shelves with these products.
    Rite Aid then has to have lots of shelves space and locations to distribute sell this stuff.
    Rite Aid reads the newspapers, magazines and internet articles and know it has to adapt to new concepts such as health clinics.
    Strategic advantage? Yes many locations, actually trying to get more locations.

    I looks like folks are coming to their senses. The stores are doing just fine navigating the way forward.
    The economy is continuing its healing, less unemployment and less cost of gas. Gosh, I think I will stop in to Rite Aid on the way home tonight and pick up some Halloween Candy for the kids.
    When you borrow someone else’s stock and sell it with a date certain to return it sounds like a DEAD BROKE Bounce!!

    The Rite Aid company is in the distribution business. It seems that there is a lot of confusion on this board just what we looking at here.
    Yes, RAD has a heavy debt burden; but why? Well they bought more stores that’s why.
    So what does that mean? Well if you are Proctor and Gamble, GNC, Kimberly Clark or any of the other manufactures of product to sell as well as prescriptions to sell (distribute) Rite Aid is a good choice to work with. Why, because they can provide lots of shelve space in lots of locations.
    Now I do not know have effective (aggressive) the supply chain for RAD is, but given the number of locations they should be getting great deals on products (margins).
    So as long as they are positive on cash they are growing the business. The only question is how fast, revenues may be down but that just temporally effects the rate of growth. As long as they are still in the game good things will happen.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Do you spend your day just watching RAD and counseling longs to sell? If you have sold then move on we don’t need your wisdom consisting of BS with nothing to back it up.
    We know this stock price reflects a way oversold position a major move up is going to happen.
    Someone is playing a very effective game here right now, looking for the weak hands and lack of nerve.
    Thus far they are winning!

    Whatever is tamping down the stock right now has no bearing to the facts. The turn up will most certainly come in dramatic fashion in due time. “Set it and forget it”
    If you are in for the long pull, rejoice in your patience you will be rewarded handsomely!

    There is more ranting and raving on this board regarding the stock price melt down where NO FACTS are provided.
    Some entity is moving this price it is not happening on its own. The RAD stores are operating just fine with no dramatic change in $. No massive store closings, no suppliers who remain un paid, not a debit payment missed. A great number of stores for much exposure to the buying public. No scandal.
    So…………….what is this all about?
    Someone is very cleverly moving this stock down, someone with lots of means to do it!
    This does not pass the smell test folks!!

    Someone is up to something under handed here.
    RAD still has plenty of “street presents” and is on the mend. Got to believe someone is moving the stock price around to make a move on a back door buy. There is no financial reason for this much of downward spiral. Show me the numbers in the future P/L that support this trend.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • This entire sector/Drug Stores is on or should be the upswing.
    I don’t know why anyone would believe otherwise. Once again; ACA, Demographics, (population getting older) steady improvement in the Economy. Also for an immediate kicker we are some 65 days from cold and flu season.

    I agree! This is another way of saying what I am trying to get at. The future earnings should be a drive in moving the stock price. The entire drug store sector will be moving forward as the market for that retail will increase. Something is holding this back???

    From my point of view the whole drug store sector will be going up over the long term.
    Why just look at the Affordable Care Act, the USA demographics, and the current but slow job growth.
    What in the world are the sellers doing?? What better place to put your money?? This is a turn around company that is at the end of the beginning of the turnaround. Could be some game playing here buy someone trying to sneak in the back door on the cheap.

  • Come back and see me 2016

    Up, down, down, up! Look most of us can’t time the market we have jobs and families.
    The long term direction looks pretty good to me. We have seen continue improvements in all areas of the business. The company is managing/steering a path that will sustain it.
    Soon expect RAD to stand with their competitors with a similar stock price.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • The market is in a mood, we have gone from investments to casino mode, looks like this storm may last a little while.

    Insmed is not making widgets. They are a biotech development company. You know development where you must meet FDA and federal regulations.
    This sector will always be volatile. The “quick fix” traders rule for now. Both longs and shorts.
    The next positive news will quickly make up all of the losses plus! Don’t you all really down deep know this to be true?
    The company has the same potential pipe line it had this past June!

    Hard to watch this beat down!
    Nothing in the news to point to as a cause. Has to be folks wanting to see lots of positive movement upward and RIGHT NOW.
    Since they are not seeing an immediate move they are taking their money elsewhere.
    In the long run that is to say before the snow flies me thinks we are okay!
    What say you?

    I know what I am going to do, keep buying. Can’t get enough of a good thing. These shares that I keep on buying every time I can shake a few bucks loose, in the long run will be wonderful for my retirement.
    I suppose I could try to time the ups and downs to channel this guy, but that’s not for me.
    In a few years I will start the reverse and sell my $25/$30 shares a little at a time over five years.

    This is getting UGLY!
    I am positive that this will turn out just fine in the long run. Nothing much has changed on the ground.
    The lemmings will do what they do. Yet it is still ugly to watch; I like you believe this is safe money in the end.

    The story in a nut shell is the price earnings ratio now and in the future.
    All of the rest is just noise.

    It really does not matter what the current Stock price is (with in this range) since I do not plan on selling anytime soon. In case of a spike in the price the same holds…..not sellin!
    See you all down the road when it is harvest time!
