CVS Caremark (CVS -0.2%) looks like a good defensive long-term play, according to Stephanie Link. She likes management's focus on quality of contracts over pricing and sees a continual grab of market share from Walgreen. If the WAG-ESRX continues to the end of the year, factor in another $0.02-$0.03 to the bottom line of CVS.

    "Quality of contracts" should be the focus of some other drug store chains as well!

    They will raise guidance when they report 2nd qtr earnings for qtr 3 and year...at least 3 cents each. Also will talk about additional buy backs in early Dec. and I predict they will at that time also raise 2013 dividend to .20 (.80 year)
