    Not sure why CVS and WBA hit hard today but RAD and ESRX still green-any idea? (Not you, Virginia-someone who had an actual clue!)

    To all cvs investors, this is a perfect opportunity to buy more stock at a cheap price. Cvs will keep going up after 11/8 when they give guidelines for 2018.

    Virginia, your lower high, lower low theory already blew up in your face last week with some nice new highs, and you're awful quiet on WBA, which is suffering along side CVS this week. But that's how you work, picking and choosing information to suit your agenda, trying to stir people up on the red days! Amazon overreaction,same as last month.

    The "move" affected WBA negatively as much as CVS so pretty sure related to Amazon and not whenever you're rambling on about

    Thought when the news came out that Merlo and CFO Denton sold some shares last week that it might cause a drop today, but it's held up surprisingly well-another positive sign!

    I think it's safe to say CVS will lose another .75-1.00 on Friday! Stay strong CVS! 😎👍🇺🇸

    Amazon "looking into" PBM is nothing new and no confirmation from anyone-plenty of barriers to entry in the near term (18-24 months) so I'm going say OVERREACTION JUST LIKE last month!

    Gotta deal with this amazon #$%$ again. Every time cvs stock goes up, the #$%$ rumors come up. If amazon goes for a mid-tier pbm one of the bigger chains or pbm will out bid amazon.

    New Amazon rumor this afternoon that they are discussing entering PBM space via mid tier PBMs--not sure if acquisition or contract to handle mail order pharmacy.

    CVS WORST PERFORMING MAJOR ON WALL STREET
    AS WBA RALLIES

    Why was CVS the hardest hit? Because in 22.7% of its stores, the new competitor is WBA, not RAD and
    in the remaining RAD stores that are competing with RAD, RAD can now buy at WBA lower prices.
    and this impacts TRICARE, the US Government, and others as part of "walk-ins."
    AND THE INSIDERS, FUNDS AND INSTITUTIONS KNOW THIS.
    What is "nasty" is that CVS used the buy back to keep prices pumped up until "enough could sneak out the back" AND SHORT ( you fools talked about "the big short squeeze" while management was selling $100 million and the funds and institutions many times that amount). The dividend is soon in jeopardy) AND THEN THERE IS AETNA LOOMING

    this has zero to do with AMAZON and everything to do with sales at 22.7% of CVS locations that now compete with WBA, not RAD that was more expensive; then throw in the PBM issue and things like the traffic that TRICARE, etc. add to the LOSS

    What happens to two entities when a switch is thrown and suddenly your national competitor decides to buy and open up "next door" to 22.7% of your locations? WBA alliance with ESRX/Tricare, etc. are immediately at your curb. This means 22.7% of your volume is challenge in these alliances alone, CVS superior margins to RAD are no more. Moreover,in the REMAINING RAD LOCATIONS, RAD can "wholesale" buy from WBA for 10 years and further pressure CVS MARGINS at 9000 locations.
    THIS IS WHY THE WBA/RAD ANNOUNCEMENT IMPACTED WBA/CVS but not PBM PLAYERS UNH and ESRX.
    Stop reading the "news" from guessers. The clone knows from the inside out what is going on.
    Look and see how CVS/WBA MOVE since uncertainties ruled the roost!
