Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA) is having a rough go of it lately. Walgreens stock trades at its lowest levels in almost six years. Sales are declining, so are earnings.Source: Mike Mozart via FlickrThe company's decision this week to raise the buying age for tobacco to 21 in its stores doesn't really change the case for Walgreens stock. Walgreens may be giving up some sales, but it's likely a small amount of total revenue. Cigarette sales likely aren't high-margin, either, meaning the impact on profits likely will be even smaller.But that doesn't mean the decision is immaterial to WBA stock. The problem for Walgreens, and one key reason why WBA shares have struggled so much of late, is that the company simply isn't executing well. The change in tobacco policy is just one symptom of that ongoing problem. As cheap as Walgreens stock looks, that execution needs to improve before investors look to buy the dip here.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Stocks to Sell Before They Give Back 2019 Gains Walgreens Moves the Cigarette Age to 21Walgreens' move to raise the buying age for tobacco to 21 didn't come out of the blue. Rather, it came because the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) was breathing down the company's neck. The agency announced in February that Walgreens was the top violator among pharmacies that sell tobacco products, with 22% of locations making illegal sales.To be fair, Walgreens is the largest pharmacy seller of tobacco products by far. Rival CVS Health (NYSE:CVS) stopped selling tobacco back in 2014, and smaller Rite Aid (NYSE:RAD) now is following Walgreens' lead. At the same time, however, this is an ongoing problem for Walgreens which dates back nearly a decade and includes some 240 penalties incurred just since 2010.The inability to control tobacco sales on its own might not seem like a big problem. But in conjunction with disappointing results of late, it certainly seems like something is not working at the store level for Walgreens. Instead of simply fixing the tobacco problem and avoiding fines, Walgreens is making a blanket policy change.Again, the issue isn't necessarily financial. When CVS ended tobacco sales, on conference calls at the time it cited a 5-8 point hit to sales growth. But it also highlighted better margins: cigarette sales simply aren't that profitable.But Walgreens' current struggles mean the company needs all the help it can get. More broadly, even with WBA stock at a multi-year low, Walgreens needs a turnaround at the store level. The decision to raise the buying age isn't comforting on that front. Why WBA Stock Is Id Scraping LowsTobacco aside, Walgreens sales simply are headed in the wrong direction particularly outside of pharmacy. According to SEC filings, comparable retail sales dropped 1.0% in fiscal 2017 and 2.4% the following year. Performance has been even worse in the first two quarters of this fiscal year: a 3.5% drop including a 3.8% decline in the disappointing Q2.Admittedly, there are some industry-wide factors at play. CVS and Rite Aid are seeing similar struggles in terms of retail sales and their stock prices. CVS stock is near a six-year low, though its acquisition of Aetna hasn't helped. Rite Aid just executed a reverse stock split and trades near a ten-year low.All three chains are struggling with retail sales. Pressures from generic drug pricing are hitting pharmacy revenue but the companies aren't getting the corresponding savings on the cost side. Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) looms after its acquisition of PillPack. And grocers like Kroger (NYSE:KR) are looking to pharmacy and convenience sales to boost their own weakening growth profiles.But industry headwinds alone aren't enough of an excuse for Walgreens. Execution clearly isn't good, given declining sales. The company radically overhauled its Balance Rewards program last year. The Rite Aid acquisition hardly looks smart, given a non-zero chance Walgreens could have picked up stores out of bankruptcy. (And bear in mind that it was the FTC that kept Walgreens from acquiring the entire chain).Simply put, Walgreens needs to do better at the store level. But Walgreens Stock Is Cheap…Even with those concerns, however, Walgreens stock is tempting. WBA trades at less than 9x FY19 EPS estimates. The balance sheet is much cleaner than that of CVS post-Aetna or Rite Aid. Amazon might be a threat at some point, but so far all has been quiet on that front.Drug pricing pressures may ease at some point. It remains to be seen how PBMs (pharmacy benefit managers) will be treated, and how those changes will echo down to the retail level.The story here isn't over. All hope isn't lost, and there's an intriguing case to buy the dip here. But for WBA stock to rally, store-level performance needs to improve. And investors might want to see some evidence of that improvement before jumping in with both feet.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.

In Canada, Ontario Premier Doug Ford killed hundreds of contracts for planned wind and solar farms. Spain pulled back subsidies, yanking the rug from projects already up and running. The rollback has divided both policy makers and the energy industry, with some calling it a natural evolution and others warning that it will undermine clean energy growth just as wind and solar have finally become mainstream sources of power.
Over the past 54 years, shares in his company, Berkshire Hathaway, have outpaced the S&P 500 — a broad index of American stocks — by almost 2.5 million percentage points. The degree to which Buffett has outwitted successive generations of Wall Street rivals almost defies comprehension. It is striking, then, that over the past decade Buffett has fallen behind.

[Editor's note: This story was previously published in January 2019 It has since been updated and republished.]Is economic growth about to hit a wall and lead us into a period of lackluster results? If that's your concern, you're not alone. This growth cycle and its corresponding bull market are, at 10 years of age, getting a bit long in the tooth.In an environment where trade wars and the fears of an old-fashioned recession have the potential to turn into trouble, investors tend to reprioritize what the market will reward. Safe consumer stocks move into favor, often at the expense of growth names. Dividend stocks become particularly compelling prospects, with traders seeking out the certainty of reliable cash flow when growth is anything but guaranteed.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Lithium Stocks to Buy Despite the Market's Irrationality To that end, here's a rundown of 10 of the market's top dividend-paying consumer stocks to mull as we wade deeper into murky waters. Procter & Gamble (PG)Source: Mike Mozart via Flickr (Modified)Some investors mentally wrote Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) off years ago, pegging it as a has-been that got too big for its own good and is too stuck in its old ways to compete well in the modern market.And to be fair, in some regards the criticisms were on target. Since CEO David Taylor took the helm in 2015, however, things have been different. P&G has been shedding brands and lines that simply aren't going to bear fruit, and though too slowly for some, the company has reworked its marketing approach to better reflect how most consumers now make purchasing decisions.Although there's more work to be done, the yield of 2.9% is solid, and Procter & Gamble has upped its payout for 63 consecutive years. Philip Morris (PM)Source: Shutterstock Last year was a rough one for Philip Morris (NYSE:PM) investors. The stock lost a total of 37% in 2018, mostly in response to tepid sales growth of its relatively new IQOS product, though downgrades all throughout the year certainly played a role in the pullback.The sellers arguably overshot their target though. * The 10 Best Index Funds to Buy and Hold While the global smoking cessation movement continues to gain traction and Philip Morris hasn't been the player it needs to be in the vaping market, this company still owns one of the most recognized and respected brand names in the business. Sales and earnings are projected to improve 5.6% and 10.2%, respectively, next year -- pretty good for the smoking industry -- and better still, the dividend yield is an impressive 5.4%. Its payout has grown every year since 2008. Spectrum Brands Holdings (SPB)Source: Shutterstock Spectrum Brands Holdings (NYSE:SPB) likely won't ring a bell with consumers, but the company's brand names will. This is the parent to Remington shaving products, George Foreman grills, Armor All automobile protectant, Tetra fish food and Kwikset door locks, just to name a few.It was a particularly poor performer in 2018, largely driven lower by downgrades and some restructuring that made it tough to get a bead on the company's future. But Bank of America's Olivia Tong made a good point with her upgrade of Spectrum, explaining "SPB's results have been challenged of late, however, headwinds are abating, while the recent sales of SPB Auto Care and Battery provide much better visibility on de-levering the balance sheet."With the sentiment pendulum swinging in the other direction again, the dividend yield of 2.7% looks like an opportunity. Packaging Corp of America (PKG)Source: Shutterstock When most investors look for consumer stocks to buy, they tend to focus on the manufacturer and brand name and look past the organizations that make those products marketable.Big mistake. That oversight steers investors right past Packaging Corp of America (NYSE:PKG), which makes the boxes and retail displays most shoppers don't give a second thought about. * 10 Monster Growth Stocks to Buy for 2019 and Beyond The big selling feature isn't the current yield of 3.2%, however, and the fact that the payout hasn't failed to grow at least a little every year going back to 2010. It's the fact that newcomers can step into PKG stock so cheaply. Shares are only trading at 12.7 times their past and 12.3 times forward-looking earnings. Tyson Foods (TSN)Source: Shutterstock Tyson Foods (NYSE:TSN) has been putting food on tables since 1931, and although it's much more than just chicken now, its chicken roots are still highly evident.The past year has been a tough one for shareholders, with fears stemming from a tariff war and rising freight costs pulling the stock well off its December 2017 high near $84. Although it has bounced back from December's low, the current price near $73 is still well short of there.A closer look at Tyson's results, however, suggests the only thing to fear was the impact of the rhetoric. Sales were up the typical 3% last year, and although earnings slipped from 2017's $6.16 per share to what will likely be $5.93 per share for 2018, analysts are looking for an earnings rebound to $6.20 per share in 2019. The pullback, in the meantime, has beefed up the yield to a respectable 2%. Hanesbrands (HBI)Source: Shubert Ciencia Via FlickrHanesbrands (NYSE:HBI) shares have been a terrible performers since early 2015, peeling back from a peak of around $35 in the middle of that year to a low of less than $12 in December of last year. Nothing the company has done has quelled the stock's bleeding.Don't jump to the wrong conclusion though. Sales have grown rather steadily since 2014, as has operating income. It has not been red-hot growth, nor hyper-consistent but certainly better than the stock's long-term trend suggests. * 3 Blue-Chip Stocks That Will Power Through Market Turmoil Regardless of the past, the present and future look healthy enough. HBI shares are only trading at 12.5 times this year's projected profit, and the trailing yield is 3.2%. This well-recognized brand name has too much going for it to ignore at that kind of valuation. Kimberly Clark (KMB)Source: Shutterstock Finally, Kimberly Clark (NYSE:KMB) is surrounded by more than a little bit of doubt. The company has seen a number of upgrades in the past few months, but as a group, analysts consider KMB a "hold" and the consensus target price near $110 is below the stock's current value near $125.Yet, to long-term income-minded investors, that earnings news will have little impact on how well KMB shares will serve them. The current yield of 3.3% is more than respectable, and sales of toilet paper, diapers and paper towels are consistent enough to maintain the company's streak of 46 years' worth of annual dividend increases.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
