    A perspective: $85 and change is only $4 above when Aetna deal closed 30 months ago. And today's market cap is-in my opinion-about what Aetna's market cap would be had Aetna remained a stand-alone company. Traction and momentum in other areas could soon push the CVS stock price to $100 plus. Investors have been in "show me" mode; that is changing. Got my CVS in the Aetna deal. It's been a frustrating ride, but I held.👍

    LMAO!!! Only $15 more dollars til #$%$ Craig is completely broke. $55-$85 in just over a year, $100 on the horizon. His bragging rights have gone down dramatically. My return as a long on CVS now outweighs his return as a short. This is only the beginning. CVS has a long way to go before it reaches full price maturity.

    If nothing else, as others have said, this is a DIVIDEND stock with solid forward-looking potential. CVS is the new IBM or GE as I see it. Many stocks out there, but few as solid as CVS and they just completed the merger. It will take 2-3 years for them to get in gear, never mind managing business with a PANDEMIC!!!

    CVS is the Rodney Dangerfield of stocks. No respect.

    87 today, you would assume 90 by end of week, maybe more than 90 , this stock is on fire

    Eight quarters in a row beat analyst estimates and yet at FPE of 10 and dividend yield of 2.57%, CVS gets no respect! It should be 120+ by now a little more than what it was in 2015.

    I was almost convinced to buy this one. But after closer inspection my opinion is that this will play more like a value stock not a growth stock. And that being said the value needs to be deeper to justify a buy. Financially they are stable but not great. Growth is also stable but not great, in fact its rather slow projected forward. Profitability isn't great either but is stable. This is a perfect stable slow growth kind of play. And at the right price is a nice long term hold since it has a dividend. Right now though the PEG ratio is too high for my taste for a slow growth company.

    I do like the Free Cash Flow and the Free Cash Flow return but that is the only metric that looks exceptional. I still need to dig deeper farther perhaps. Paying down debt might help all the numbers improve a bit. But boy slow growth plays are best traded over a year or two in my opinion.

    So I'm looking for a $69 to $70 buy in point. Its possible we get that if the market corrects which it probably should.

    low multiple of cash flow, retail ability t oraise price quickly and high inventory turn, insurance biz with short tail. This stock is a winner in an inflationary environment.

    I've read the transcript of today's earnings call. I'll go out on a limb and say that I think that the stock will get traction...finally...and trend up. It's time! Minute Clinics catching on and 800 HealthHubs are open for biz and more on the way. The only negative that I see is that CVS is missing out on front store opportunities... financials not disclosed. Today's stock price reached the basis of my stock acquired in the Aetna deal...a long way to go to get that investment up to par...$100 plus. Mildly bullish for a change.

    EBIDTA is at 18 BN. 3 x that is 54 . Current debt is 59-60 BN. Once the 2 BN due this year and 4 BN due next year is paid off buybacks will start . Am I right?

    Question. Yahoo is using GAAP per share earnings of 5.46 to compute a current PE of 15. But it seems on the board and in many published articles non-GAAP adjusted per share earnings are being used to calculate PE. I am assuming then from an investors standpoint if PE is being used to make a purchase or sale decision, adjusted earnings is appropriate? Any thoughts let me know. Thanks

    At eps of $7.56 (the lower end of their prediction) times a very conservative 14 multiple would price CVS share price to $105 for just this year alone. Cvs is still very undervalued!!

    How can one not want to "hide out" in CVS picking up 2.5% dividend at a PE multiple of 10, vs an S&P 500 multiple of 22 and a yield of 1.45%?
