I am not sure if I like Miracle of 34th Street more than Wild Wild West at the box office, however, I do know that a non-generic drug is a non-generic drug, TEVA jokes aside. In other words, your brand names are the same as the brand names in my local CVS, so this company has no moat of entrance like my local IKEA building. As a result, investors are going to need the flock of newly prescribed people to keep the stock price of this equity moving to the stars. I believe that with an aging baby boomer population on your side, this equity will likely see 100 a share in my lifetime, please keep those LTM jokes for the use in those LED TVs, which might be sooner or later depending on my environment regardless of which party wins the next bid for the White House. Walgreen, outperform for the sake of my CAPS score. Fool on and God bless us all. I am human so I would likely die if shot by a local cop at one of your locations and I doubt that any of your pills would save me on this spot if such an event occurs in my lifetime. Ha, ha, Food on...

WAG increased the dividend to 33.75 cents per quarter. At the current stock price in pre-market trade of $58.50 the dividend yield is roughly 2.3%. Rx margin pressure is hurting financial outlook.

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).

Changing My Caps to Reflect my investing strategy. I start with a simple screener trying to find undervalued dividend paying stocks. Then because I want to invest in things I understand I eliminate any businesses I have not heard of or in areas I lack knowledge ( Financials, Precious Metals). After that I check the Caps Rating and it gets a thumbs up if it is rated 4 stars or higher. Very few 3 star companies will get a thumbs up but occasionally i will go out on a limb with one.

I have watched Walgreen for several years, and often feel that it does serve the needs of the seniors. For example, if I want to buy an item in smaller quantities, Walgreen may have what I need. The grocery stores seem to want me to bear the warehousing costs of most general household items.

Well managed company with a strong and increasing dividend, as well as a well funded stock buyback program. These guys are planning for the future rather then just looking forward for the next 6 months.

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.

Unedited excerpt from a CAPSCall article anticipated for publication on 31-DEC-2012:

The next selection for the newly launched Inflation-Protected Income Growth Portfolio is drug store titan Walgreen (NYSE: WAG). Well known for marrying convenience with service and well-staffed, knowledgeable pharmacies, Walgreen prides itself on being available where and when its customers need it.

The company has paid a dividend for 80 straight years, and it has paid higher amounts each year for the past 37. That’s a commendable track record. Even better, that shareholder-friendly dividend policy predates the Bush dividend tax cuts by decades, making it unlikely that it would change just because those cuts are slated to expire. And with a respectable payout ratio of 45%, it has considerable coverage even if things do go bad.
