Walgreens Boots Alliance

WBA

U.S.

In December, Walgreen’s announced a 40% stake in Sinopharm Holding Guoda Drugstores in China, expanding the company’s global reach. And the pharma retailer is getting into the data game, having spent over $500 million to-date on updating pharmacy management and data collection system and turning its 88.6 million user “Balance Rewards” program into a customer insight tool. Despite these expansion efforts and stronger than expected Q3 earnings, shareholders have watched the pharma retailer’s shares drop amid Amazon’s plans to buy online pharmacy PillPack.
