Seems rising interest rates could be a problem.End ASAP , too difficult for real money. BuffettJunior1 (97.48) Submitted: 3/14/2012 4:50:26 PM : Start Price: $2.10 RAD Score: -13.48This is a slow growth business that is consistently losing money. The company has very little cash on hand and about $6.2 billion in long-term debt. Overall, the company has a market cap of $1.8 billion and an enterprise value of approximately $8 billion. Now, I don’t know about you people but to me this stock seems grossly overvalued. In fact, I am willing to bet good money that this company won’t be around 5 years from now. The company is taking on an ever increasing amount of debt every year and is struggling to cover its interest expense. This cannot go on forever; eventually the company will be forced to declare bankruptcy. This stock might do well in the short-term; however, in the long run I can almost guarantee that it will become worthless.

cash is rising and expenses of remodeling stores is about over. $200 mm/yr for past several years is reason for improvement in SSS. Check out remodeled stores; they are attractive to new customers, and pharmecy is getting customers from Walgreen.
