    Hey, Fools:

    This is another article where the initial link doesn't give you the article, and you have to go elsewhere to read it, along with the additional sales pitches... I've stopped taking the next step, and it won't be long that I'll quit clicking the original link if you just keep teasing folks like this.

    Didn't read the article, but here's my take on WAG:

    Bought WAG shares during the period that they were being beaten down by the market during the fiasco with Express Scripts. They patched up their differences, WAG rose 20%, and I'm hanging on because the business will now continue to grow.

    Partly because of the recent acquisition of USA Drug, and mainly because they are the most convenient to use. As a confirmed Walgreen's customer, they've sold me on their ability to get me the prescription I need whenever and wherever I need.

    Hope your article covered these points.
