  • Walgreen Company Posts Lower Q2 Earnings; Misses Estimates (WAG)

    Before the opening bell on Tuesday morning, Walgreen Company (WAG) reported its second quarter earnings, with sales coming in higher than last year's Q2, but earnings coming in below. WAG's Earnings in Brief
    • WAG reported second quarter revenues of $19.6 billion, which marked an increase of 5.1% from last year's $18.65 billion.
    • Adjusted net earnings for the quarter came in at $880 million, down from last year's Q2 results of $915 million.
    • The company’s adjusted net earnings per share came in at 91 cents, down from last year's EPS of 96 cents.
    • WAG missed analysts' expectations of 93 cents EPS on revenues of $19.1 billion.
    • The company reported that comparable front-end sales (for stores open at least one year) increased 2%, customer traffic in comparable stores decreased 1.4%, and total sales in comparable stores increased 4.3%.
    CEO Commentary WAG's president and CEO Greg Wasson had the following comments:  “Our second quarter performance, in spite of expected headwinds from slower generic drug introductions, comparisons with last year’s flu season and severe weather, was marked by solid top-line growth driven by record quarterly sales and record second-quarter prescriptions filled. We also continued to gain prescription market share while we maintained a firm hold on our costs. “We head into the second half of the year with nearly 80 million active members in our Balance® Rewards loyalty program and with expectations that the generic drug headwind that affected the first half will ease and turn around by the end of the year. In addition, our joint synergy program with Alliance Boots is expected to exceed its second-year estimate, and we are bringing critical elements of the Well Experience to additional stores.” WAG's Dividend Walgreen's most recent dividend of 32 cents was paid in March, and we expect the company to declare its next dividend in the coming weeks. Walgreen last raised its dividend in September 2013. Stock Performance WAG stock was inactive in pre-market trading. YTD, the company's stock is up 13.56%.
