    Drugstore.com (DSCM) has struggled to turn a profit, but Walgreen's (WAG) acquisition of the business adds 50% more customers to its already strong online presence. Building such scale likely would have cost Walgreen critical time as online sales of drugstore products surge. In the digital age, investors don't mind paying a premium for faster results.
