NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- CVS Caremark ( CVS) is taking its winning show on the road, announcing Thursday that it is expanding into Puerto Rico by opening nine stores there this year.

The new stores will create about 400 jobs at the company.

Earlier this week, CVS reported fourth-quarter sales that topped that of rivals Rite Aid ( RAD) and Walgreen ( WAG), and issued a 2010 outlook that could best Wall Street's forecast.
