    What you speak about will take sometime to work out so for an investment I have to sideline CVS. Don't get me wrong I love my local CVS $ 51 but for and investment RAD $ 1.58 has started a new trend of being profitable after many yrs of losing money.

    Since then RAD has raised guidance and several upgrades and additional analyst coverage. My local broker brought my attention to the professionals club who's beliefs of RAD prediction 2013 to triple with a price target $ 3.20. I hope you understand my need for solid returns.

    RAD is a dog with fleas.Certainly it would not take much to get the equity of the mat however Brenton is on the money here.I will always take one that is working over a "Hail Mary" every day.

    In CVS & UNH all that is required is continued execution and both have proven to be excellent in finding paths of growth.

    Best with Rite Aid though.

    Have you visited a nearby RAD lately ?
