WAG is poised to continue to grow due to aging population and expansive growth in healthcare fields. This area cannot be overlooked and the huge players in the arena are the way to go. Some are bearish about the acquisition of the foreign pharmacy unit they have recently jumped into bed with, not me. International growth without having to break into the market. WAG has done a great job integrating purchases, why would this change now. The recent problems with the pharmacy benefits partner are clearing up but the improvment in this relationship has not been reflected into the price yet. Top it off with a 2.8% dividend and this one will help me grow old comfortably.
