$WBA.US Ranked Negative On January 19th, 2024

Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc (WBA US, -N, 19-Jan-24)

Nancy Schlicting (Director since 2006) sold 15,209 shares on January 16th at $23.05, reducing her stock holdings to zero. In addition, she does own 71,251 DSUs so still has meaningful ownership. Her last sale was of a similar size in November 2022 at $40, which proved timely and was the reason for our downgrade at the time. 

This sale, while similar in size, is at a lower price point but also somewhat¬†concerning in that the company just named a new CEO, Timothy Wentworth, just three months ago in Oct. 2023. He¬†did make a recent purchase, spending $242,000, which slightly offsets this sale from Schlicting. Nevertheless,¬†Schlicting’s sale, into weakness and soon after a new CEO takes over, is not encouraging. Schlicting was the former¬†CEO of Henry Ford Health Systems from 2003-2016.¬†

We are ranking the stock -N.
