NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Walgreen Co. (WAG) are up 1.10% to $59.86 in pre-market trading after the drug store chain was upgraded to "hold" from "sell" at Cantor Fitzgerald.
The firm increased its price target to $56 from $50, and cited the recent pullback in shares as it believes the stock is approaching fair valuation.
Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates WALGREEN CO as a Buy with a ratings score of B+. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate WALGREEN CO (WAG) a BUY. This is driven by a number of strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow."
