Walmart Reports Earnings Today. Here’s What to Expect.

Walmart is competing well with Amazon.com thanks to its strong e-commerce abilities and plethora of retail locations. Wall Street expects same-store sales to rise 2.4%.

How KKR Could Pull Off a Walgreens Takeover

Fund manager Bill Smead cites the availability of cheap financing, the drugstore chain’s strong earnings power, and possible participation by Berkshire Hathaway.

Upbeat News About Boeing’s 737 Max Jet Is Lifting the Dow

The blue-chip stock index spent most of the morning in negative territory, weighed down by concern over prospects for a trade deal and the increasingly violent protests in Hong Kong.

KKR Buyout of Walgreens Looks Hard. Do the Math.

A leveraged buyout of the drugstore company would be tough to pull off, given the company’s size and the amount of equity likely needed to finance a deal.

Walgreens' stock surge providing a 25-point cushion to the Dow's price

The 6.3% rally in Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc.'s stock , after a Bloomberg report of KKR & Co.'s interest in a leveraged buyout of the drugstore chain, was the leading gainer of the 8-of-30 Dow Jones Industrial Average components gaining ground in morning trading Monday. The stock's $3.74 price gain was adding about 25 points to the Dow's price, which was down 99 points, or 0.4%. Walgreen's stock remains the worst performing Dow stock over the past 12 months, as it has shed 23.6% over that time period. The 2nd-worst performer over the past year is Pfizer Inc.'s stock , which has lost 16.5%.

Walgreens shares rise on reported KKR buyout interest

Shares of Walgreens Boots Alliance rallied 6.4% toward a 7-month high in morning trading Monday, after Bloomberg News reported that the private equity giant KKR & Co. had approached the pharmacy chain about a buyout. If the deal moves forward, which could be valued at north of $70 billion, it would be the largest leveraged buyout ever. Like other pharmacy retailers, Walgreens is facing pressure from a combination of weak retail shares and drug reimbursement pressure. Reuters first reported last week that the company was considering going private. Walgreens stock is down 7.8% year-to-date, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has rallied 18.2%.

KKR Is Preparing an Offer for Walgreens, Report Says

Shares of Walgreens Boots Alliance jumped Monday morning after Bloomberg reported that the private-equity giant KKR has formally approached the pharmacy retailer about a leveraged-buyout offer.
