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 year

Because 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).

If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.

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)

David's new stock, CVS, perplexes me as a retired Longs/CVS employee. I have read the CVS article in the Stock Advisor, but cannot understand how CVS can be as successful as it appears to be when all of the employees I know just hate working there, especially those who previously worked for Longs, many whom have since quit.

Company just announced discontinuing the sale of cigarettes. Okay, so why be optimistic about a company that is cutting out a lot of revenue... because it shows me that they are truly thinking strategically for the long-term (not just quarter to quarter). They are trying to convert themselves into a medical provider, not just a place to buy asprin, milk and a birthday card. I can see them further expanding their Minute Clinic concept into other areas, which should help profitability quite a bit.

CVS is selling at over a 40% discount to the S&P 500, with a Forward PEG of 1.1. Analysts are raising price targets, and earnings have been met or exceeded in each of the last 6 reporting quarters. The recent weakness in price has created a good entry point, as the stock is currently oversold.

CVS is the market leading in filling prescriptions, as well as selling household products. It's already a pretty large company, but I believe they can still grow due to ObamaCare increasing the amount of prescriptions being issued, as well as being the go-to store for household products (like soap, shampoo, party food, razors, etc.) Hold CVS for a year and reexamine the effect that ObamaCare has on the company.

CVS is poised to win big from Obamacare and the rapid aging of Baby Boomers, and it will win in several directions: through its PBM, its pharmacies, and its specialty pharmacy division.
