FBN Securities analyst Robert Routh initiated AMC Networks (AMCX) with an Outperform rating and a fair value estimate of $69.24. Routh calls AMC Networks "very attractive" as a possible takeover target, as he believes it could fit well with either the soon-to-be-combined Lionsgate (LGF)-Starz (STRZA) or with AT&T's (T) DTV division. Routh added that reports have indicated that AT&T is looking to grow its portfolio of TV content through deals.

Leerink more positive on CVS after Formulary exclusions lists
Leerink analyst David Larsen says he's incrementally more positive on CVS Health (CVS) after the company and Express Scripts (ESRX) published their 2017 National Preferred Formulary exclusions lists. CVS is being more aggressive about using bio-similar products and has excluded about 10 products due to hyperinflation trends, Larsen tells investors in a research note. Express Scripts is excluding around 85 products in 2017, which is almost half of the 153 products being excluded by CVS, the analyst writes. He keeps an Outperform rating on CVS and a Market Perform ration on Express Scripts.

CVS Health price target lowered to $105 on pricing concerns at Leerink
Leerink analyst David Larsen said that after speaking with a PBM and Managed Care specialist and performing an analysis of IMS data he now believes that drug pricing has slowed materially over the past 9 months. Given that conclusion, Larsen is lowering his revenue and EPS estimates for CVS Health for the second half of this year and for 2017 and lowered his price target on CVS shares to $105 from $110. However, he keeps an Outperform rating on the stock, since he is still positive on CVS for the long-term.

EpiPen price is Mylan's issue, says Leerink
Leerink analyst David Larsen says the recent weakness in pharmacy benefit managers and the drug distribution group is "overdone," as he believes Mylan (MYL) has been taking the vast majority of the pricing increases that have occurred with EpiPen, not the pharmacy benefit managers and distributors. Further, the analyst estimates that Cardinal Health (CAH) has a "fee-for-service" deal with EpiPen, which means that there may be no benefit to the company for any price increase that occurs, and notes that Express Scripts (ESRX) gives back 80%-90% of EpiPen rebates to their plan customers. Larsen would be a buyer of CVS Health (CVS) on weakness.

Primoris (PRIM) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Seaport Global with analyst Ryan Cassil saying there are fairly low expectations assumed in management's guidance of 90c-$1.10 and the possibility of project starts ahead of management's internal forecast.
