TOP PICK
It's suffered the double-whammy of eliminating drug pricing talk by politicians in the U.S. and fears of Amazon getting into the pharma space. WBA has increased its dividend 43 years in a row and expect one in June. Trades at lower than 10x earnings. He thinks pricing fears are overblown. Targets this in the mid-$70s within 12 months. (Analysts’ price target is $74.35)

He decided to get out of CVS-T because they were on the defensive too much. In the US a lot of funding for drugs comes from the government. They are always looking for ways to bring down healthcare costs in the US. CVS-T keep making acquisitions to make the company make sense. He would probably prefer WBA-Q.

It looks shaky now. Hopefeully it stays in the $60-80 range. If it breaks below $60, you're in trouble. Have a short leash on this.

PAST TOP PICK
Walgreen Boots Alliance(WBA-Q) 

December 21, 2018

(A Top Pick Nov 30/17, Down 3%) Holding its own given the recent drop in markets in general. Just in the last week it has weaken based on a weak report from GoldmanSachs. They have recently guided earnings in line with market expectations. The European market slowdown is creating headwinds. It trades at less than 10 times earnings and over 2% yield with rising dividends expected next year.

They have 13,000 stores in the US and just bought many more stores recently. They struggled to bring those into the structure, but feels they are going to do well. Trading at 12.5 times earnings (about 30% discount to normal). It is a Dow component. He thinks there are good things to come.

Maybe the CVS acqusition of Aetna is synergistic by putting Aetna facilities besides CVS locations, but will this drive volume within the pharamcy? He's not sure. Trades at 10x earnings. With this purchase, their debt is higher. Wait a couple of quarters to see if the acqusition pans out.

PAST TOP PICK

(Past Top Pick Nov. 30, 2017,Up 8%) The Amazon fear of taking over this space was unfounded. WBA sales are a little weak, but beat on earnings. Trades at 11x earnings and pays a 2.5% dividend which they've increased 42 years in a row and he expects another in January. A defensive play.

It is getting traction. He thinks it is going to be part of the solution to the health care problem in the US. Everybody is traying to solidify the relation with the patient. They are well positioned to do that with a lot of locations. 13,000 drugstores in the US. Most health care issues are not urgent. Companies like this are vertically integrated creating alliances with other companies in the health care chain. It is going to do well in the long term. Be patient.

It's trading at a low multiple, around 10x. But the worry is that Amazon will destroy Walgreens' model. What the market is missing is that Walgreens has 13,000 U.S. storefronts close to most of the American population. (CVS, which he
also owns, has 10,000.) The effect is to create a relationship with the patient/consumer so they can interact with a medical professional. Society is getting older, so chronic medical conditions will increase. These folks won't go to the
most expensive places to be served, meaning hospitals and emergency rooms.

He thinks the impact of AMZN-Q coming into the space is over stated.  When you look at the valuation of WBA-Q today, the huge scale, he has a lot of trust in the management.  They are generating a boat load of free cash flow.  (Analysts’ target: $71.39).

One of the largest phramacies int he US. In the past year they bought several hunreds Rite-Aids, giving them a needed footprint in the American northeast. Cheap with less than 10x earnings. There are worries of Amazon coming into this sector, but Walgreens won't roll over and let them take over. They enjouy a good growth rate. (Analysts' price target $81.25)
