NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The following stocks go ex-dividend Thursday, meaning an investor must purchase the shares Wednesday to qualify for the next dividend payment: Walgreen ( WAG), Moody's ( MCO), Bunge ( BG), FLIR Systems ( FLIR), Ryder System ( R), Snap-on ( SNA) and Tractor Supply ( TSCO).
Walgreen The drug store chain reported second-quarter earnings on March 27 of $683 million, or 78 cents a share, down from year-earlier earnings of $739 million, or 80 cents. "ESRX noted the exclusion of Walgreens had a benefit to mail volumes," Oppenheimer analysts wrote in a May 14 report. "Mail scripts came in 0.6M/1.0M better than our/consensus estimates. Several Medco clients have elected to pre-empt the discussion of whether WAG will remain an option in the Medco book of business, opting for a retail network excluding WAG."
