Rite Aid Stock Analysis

I chose to analyze the third largest retail drugstore chain in the United States, Rite Aid
Corporation. I chose to analyze Rite Aid Corp. because our family owns approximately 1200
shares and we have taken quite a loss on our investment. We are in the process of deciding
whether or not we should sell our stock. Additionally, my Mother has been a pharmacist at
Rite Aid Corp for 11 years and she often pays close attention to the financial stability
of the company. We both feel that when you are employed by a corporation, that the
corporation should be financially stable. A financially secure employer is one who
generally offers better compensation and advancement to its employees.

Rite Aid Corp. has its corporate headquarters located at 30 Hunter Lane, Camp Hill,
Pennsylvania 17001, and their telephone number is (717) 761-2633. Rite Aid's common stock
is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and the Pacific Stock Exchange under the trading
symbol "RAD" The board of directors consists of 11 members. Robert G. Miller is the Chief

youngest member being 43 years old and the oldest being 72 years old.
