Street chatter: Details haven't been released, but early buzz tips to Express Script (ESRX +2.4%) getting the better end of the pharmacy deal with Walgreen (WAG +12.1%), perhaps to the point it landed terms close to its original demands.

    I commend Walgreen for burying the hatchet. If they can get 3 cents a share per quarter out of the deal, it will be acceptable. I think management will probably not revise its guidance though and given the time line we may never really know for sure the impact -- it will be easy to attribute any small rise in the EPS to a host of generalized factors.

     

    They need about 7 cents a share per quarter to get back to neutral with the previous economics.
