+ Watch CVS
on My Watchlist
The Company's current operations are grouped into two businesses: Retail Pharmacy and Pharmacy Benefit Management.
Barron's List World's Greatest CEOs 3/23/15 - Larry Merlo1. CVS changed its name to CVS Health2. Keep primary health care costs lower by starting nearly 1000 MinuteClinics staffed by physician assistants and certified nurse practitioners3. Ended tobacco sales at CVS

An aging America is growing more health conscious. Halting the sale of cigarettes was genius, backing up the talk with action.
like the numbers
aging population, obamacare....
Aging population needing meds, convenience, newer modern stores
There is no doubt in my mind that CVS will compliment WAG going forward.

Positive: - Profits from wasted Obamacare money - Defensive sector, steady cash generator - Long term growth due to aging population Negative: - Chart quite extended, could correct in the short term Category: BVm
because i need it to
Great business with widespread influence. Stopped selling tobacco products which are bad for health. Involved in pharmacy benefits management. Second largest pharmacy business in the USA.
well positioned for long term growth in the healthcare industry.
The decision to stop selling tobacco and cigarettes will likely have a short-term negative affect on sales and earnings, but in the long run it's a socially responsible decision that I think customers will reward with increased brand loyalty as the company shifts its focus more toward the "care" part of it's name. I like this move by CVS.
With a great business model and more costumers being able to access the pharmacy through insurance there should be a growth in not only Top line but store front items.
Decreasing margin gap between wal-mart on consumer good products. Introduction of erwards program and quick accessibility of prescriptions. Look for a CVS coming to a corner near you.
CVS has an A for financial health and a PEG less than 1 on Morningstar, so it's one of my long picks.
Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:- A payout ratio below 50%- An increasing dividend from the prior yearBecause there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen. Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).http://www.factset.com/websitefiles/PDFs/dividend/dividend_12.16.13If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.
SA Pick, took a small stake
dominating the market for consumer drugs, smart play to eliminate tobacco sales (others will follow), expansion to other high margin products (aka walmart and target)
