    PIDDIE
    Per Reuters and Dow Jones news below:

    "CVS, Walgreens to administer COVID-19 vaccines to U.S. nursing homes - HHS
    REUTERS 1:58 PM

    CVS, Walgreens to Get Govt Vaccine Deal for Long-Term Care Facilities -Politico
    DJ REALTIME NEWS 1:33 PM".

    This would give both WBA and CVS more businesses toward to their future earnings. Time to buy more WBA shares. WBA will rise to $42 at least by YE2020 while collecting .47 cents dividend per quarter or 5% annually.

    this will be at 50 in no time. no way you can look at a company with an over 5% dividend, massive positive free cashflow, growing top line and strengthening its pharmaceutical partnerships and business and tell me it's worth 0.25X Sales. the dividend alone makes it a screaming buy. try to get 5% in a bank you can't, and also very low risk!!!!

    My favorite line from the earnings report - "I'm also encouraged by the accelerating growth in our e-commerce platforms."

    Time for Walgreens to offer small money for rite aids. Better to add revenue. With John the savior Stanley taking over. No other way to add revenue with declining sss.

    wow this stock is impressive. and when you look at the dividend yield and actually callinh for earnings growth in 2021... this report and the forecast should push this stock way higher. ofcourse res day holding it down but wow honestly was not expecting that solid of a report

    Think about it, WBA is growing earnings paying over 5%. Steal of the year from here.

    They hired the #4 Worst CEO in the World, John "the RAT" Scamley to head up their N.A. operations.
    He took the last company's stock he worked at from $9.25 to 25 cent after a shareholder destroying 20 to 1 split. Walgreens is heading the same way as Rite Aid with this cheese-eating Rat in charge. With people ordering at home, pillpack will eventually take their place, with Amazon replacing the overpriced front-end items sales.

    own this stock cover your mortgage interest and more on the dividend, and it's not an energy dividend where you dont know if it'll exist in a year its a real solid dividend

    Surprise positive report. I've been saying" dead $$$". It will take time for Funds to build positions. I see gradual move higher over months. After smart $$$ have positions then House buy recommendation will start coming out.
    Sleepy move higher.

    I have a solution. Inventory control is non-existent at WBA. They will send items to stores when the inventory is abundant. Overstocking is WBA's biggest problem. Training in this area will pull them out of the sand. This is an easy fix but leadership needs to implement a plan ASAP.

    No reason this shouldn't be over $50, $60 per share. Totally upside down.

    you're going to be looking at a 140 billion revenue company with soon well over 5 billion in earnings and over 5% dividend trading at
    0.25 sales and you're telling me people would rather go buy some tech junk trading at 20x revenue with no earnings. ill take the dividend

    i believe this will move significantly higher today especially once market opens, this is an actual stock that will provide a strong safe dividend of over 5% is growing its pharmacy business and top line overall revenue!!! how can you not like the value here

    What a shame this earnings came on a down market day. This would be up $2/share on an up 300 day.

    personally would have no issue buying this stock if were at 50 with the dividend it has, and still projecting earnings growth
