On CAPS, 94% of the 844 members who have rated Express Scripts believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Late last month, one of those bulls, All-Star NovaTodd, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Accounting for the recent Medco acquisition, Express Scripts now does business with ~95% of retail pharmacies in the U.S., and possesses significant bargaining power in this relationship (see the Walgreen fiasco for evidence of this). They also have about 60% market share in the mail-order prescriptions business, fertile ground for future growth. Favorable demographic shifts, the closing of the "Medicare donut hole" and a recent share repurchase authorization are just a few more reasons this company is a long term winner.
