Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Walgreens is one of the largest domestic retail pharmacy chains, with around 8,800 U.S. locations. Over three fourths of Americans live within five miles of a Walgreens location.

Bears

The confluence of reimbursement pricing pressure in the retail pharmacy and tough general retail store conditions has diminished profitability and ROICs.
