Walgreen's is mismanaged in numerous ways. Example several days ago I walk into the Pharmacy and I see a hearing aid on counter with box that says, revolutionary hearing aid price $799.00. The pharmacist tells me their is no audiologist in the store and no one to help a patient try on the hearing aid. Incompetence at Walgreen's, Than I am looking for Softsoap and there is no one in any of aisles to tell me where it is, finally I find someone who leads me to a strange place at the back of the store. I say why does't Walgreens have a little machine in front of store that tells you what aisle stuff is in. I wasted at least 10 minutes plus it is 3 or 4 dollars at Walgreen's and $1.25 at the dollar store. This is misery shopping at Walgreen's. They mismanage the stores and do not have adequate personal. and no one to watch the shelves. Stealing is rampant. Walgreen's will drop more.
ROZ Brewer CEO took a massive position recently at about 35.00 and I don’t think she plans on losing money. This is Dow 30 gem and a dividend aristocrat. Buy and hold it till death do you part.
@Always Bullish She probably sold covered calls or bought put options against her position. Walgreen's is like Sears. It will disappear or its blue print in retail will decline significantly in the future.
6%…please. That was great back in the zero interest days but pathetic now. Maybe when the yield gets above 7-8%, investors may get excited but by that time it will be labeled a falling knife, assuming the reason the yield increased was due to the share price falling more. Company should consider a dividend hike rather than giving out free goods to thieves. I guess they, executives and retail thieves, work under the same principal - steal from shareholders
...WBA................Best living, breathing example of a "Value Trap" that I have ever seen...........
@danny6 Agreed. Does anyone know estimates for remaining opioid liability settlements to individual states?
No the management will cut the dividend and send it to the politicians. Wba has bad mgmt and attorneys. Feckless bunch.
