How Safe Is Walgreens Boots Alliance and Its Dividend?

Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ: WBA) is a retail pharmacy giant that owns thousands of stores across the U.S. The 120-year-old company has become a household name for many Americans. Amazon, which is increasingly focusing on the healthcare market, is just one tech player looking to disrupt the pharmacy sector with its new service, Amazon Pharmacy. If it doesn't, that could make Walgreens a risky investment and may even put its impressive streak of dividend increases in danger.
