Got some more WAG when I saw it drop 10 dollars a share because it announced it wasn't moving overseas to save on taxes.
Just got a little, didn't overdo it.

I applaud their patriotism although it apparently didn't amuse the street. Yahoo shows the PE at over 20. I suspect it hasn't taken into account the 14% drop. Intriguing and I'll keep an eye on it!

Looks like it's going to be a little lower this morning.
It's always had a high PE and a rising but low dividend rate.
It's paying over 2% now.

Sold my WAG yesterday. Seems a little high right now.
Made 21% in a few months. Thanks for the tip back in the summer!

Glad you made money.  I'm staying in even though at this
price the div is below 2%.  It's a dividend Aristocrat and
something interfered with it's earnings report for something
or other.  Won't get a dividend raise until August 2015.

I've got it as a strong hold with maybe accumulate on any
pull back.  It's always had a higher PE but when it reports
new earnings the PE should drop to 16 or 17.

We're keeping it as a permanent holding.  Honey has it, I have
it, and we have it.  Still pretty nice div for what we paid for it.

Ok, it made it's earnings and stated them but it must have been
reduced for it's purchase of Boots expenses.

From Wikipedia:

"August 6, 2014: Walgreens exercised its option to purchase the
remaining 55% of Alliance Boots. The combined company will be
known as Walgreens Boots Alliance and be headquartered in Chicago."

It's been gobbling up a lot of other companies as well.

Wikipedia is a great research tool for stocks by the way.

Walgreen Co. (WAG) -NYSE 76.51 Up 2.24(3.02%)

You left a little on the table but that's better than waiting too long
if you don't know. Keeper stock for us anyway.

Analysts predicted quarterly earning of $.75 and they reported
$.85.
