Just last week, one of those Fools, ValueInvestor747, tapped CVS Caremark as a particularly solid income opportunity:

Not my traditional investment as I'm relying on more growth than anything, but still pays a decent dividend and valuation is OK. They have impressed me with [year-over-year] revenue growth and with the baby boomers continuing to age, I see huge growth. It may take a few years, but I have time.
