  • Rite Aid Introduces Receutics Active Skin Repair Line [View article]
    Looks good. Skin products are needed by the public without prescription often. I expect this line to sell well. We shall see. The pricing seems good at this point in time.

    Long RAD....

  • THE GREAT ROTATION...WHEN? By Charles Payne [View instapost]

    Or our lives and the economy can quickly be changed by ISIS which is on the verge of taking Kobane and hasn't missed a beat since President Obama ordered air strikes.


    Please tell us how the markets will be under sharia law and the caliphate, sir.

    I eagerly await your elucidation on the above.

  • WAGES OF FEAR - By Charles Payne [View instapost]
    Here is another FEAR that is both conscious and subconscious in America circa 2014: that we the middle class are oh so close to falling out of it and into the world of the poorer and their suffering. This reality abounds!

  • Don't Bet On A Quick Rebound For Rite Aid [View article]
    IMHO when margins are decreased it really hurts any business. I know this happened to office-based physicians and no matter how hard they worked their take home pay either decreased or stayed flat. Will not the same thing happen to RAD?

    Also-----again------I raise for discussion the onorous long term debt. Its more than the market cap of RAD. If and when interest rates rise it will really hurt. I believe a big portion of the debt is coming due in 2017 or so.

    Long since

  • After Attractive Sales Results, Should Investors Give Rite Aid A Chance? [View article]
    Benjamin Graham in his seminal The Intelligent Investor taught investors to stay away from equities with DEBT. This was 50 years or more ago and today on SA one rarely reads about debt.

    The GIGANTIC problem RAD carries even to this date is its long term debt. It was in the $6 billion range not long ago. Anyone who has an idea or two on how this will play out for RAD please let us know here. Thanks, Cyborg....

    long RAD since 1999

  • Update: Rite Aid - Positive Direction Continues [View article]
    Two key factors going forth are:

    Standley stays and leads. His work reveals what real effective CEO leadership can do. Just compare his work to his predecessor!!

    And two--the horrible long term debt is still there and not to be forgotten. Yes, there is a lull right now but it returns with a vengeance in the not too long future. Can Standley and team handle it? No one did in the past.

  • The Bond Trap [View article]
    Our children and grandchildren after them will need JOBS. Jobs that allow a middle class to survive and hopefully thrive. If 70% of the GNP comes from our family shopping, then they will need the jobs to earn the monies to shop.

    Without good paying jobs all other economic talk pales in importance.
