What are analysts saying about Walgreens Boots Alliance stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Walgreens Boots Alliance stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Walgreens Boots reported mixed first-quarter fiscal 2017 results with earnings marginally beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate and sales missing the mark. The year-over-year fall in quarterly sales raises concern. The mixed performance however, has not much impacted its share price trend. Mostly in the last three months, Walgreens Boots traded above the Zacks classified Retail-Drug Stores industry. Management continues to believe that growth in the second half of 2017 will reflect the new strategic pharmacy tie-ups announced in 2016. Several recent strategic programs including skin product launch and vaccination program are also expected to boost the company’s growth in near terms. On the flip side, the company’s gross margin continues to deliver a bleak performance. The company has raised the lower end of its 2017 EPS guidance, thus narrowing the range. Currency fluctuations and a competitive landscape are other major headwinds." (1/31/2017)

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We believe that today’s announcement of the proposed divestiture of 865 RAD stores to FRED for $950MM in cash should be sufficient to appease regulatory competition concerns and eliminate concerns about WBA’s ability to close the RAD deal." (12/21/2016)
