Tricare announcement not material to CVS Health, says Leerink

Leerink analyst David Larsen notes that Tricare recently announced that CVS Health (CVS) will be excluded from its network effective December 1 and Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) will be in-network. While there are over 127M scripts associated with Tricare each year, the analyst estimates that just about 30.6M of these prescriptions are "retail" and as a result Larsen does not believe that CVS' exclusion from the Tricare network will be material. He remains positive on CVS, and reiterates an Outperform rating and $105 price target on the company's shares.

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.

Walgreens Boots Alliance added to Focus List at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Robert Willoughby said Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) closing of the Rite Aid (RAD) acquisition in 2H 2016 will bring meaningful revenue growth, cash flow, and cost cutting opportunities to drive Walgreens shares higher. The analyst sees limited downside given new and potentially more preferred pharmacy network agreements with leading PBMs, capital deployment, and the early AmerisourceBergan warrant exercise. Willoughby reiterates his Outperform rating and $95 price target on Walgreens shares and the investment policy committee added it to the Credit Suisse Focus List.

Leerink remains positive on Walgreens Boots Alliance long-term
Leerink analyst David Larsen remains positive on Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) in the long-term, despite reducing his forward revenue and earnings estimates due mainly to trends in FX. Larsen still believes that the Rite Aid (RAD) deal will close in the second half of 2016, and expects shares of Walgreens Boots Alliance to rally once that happens. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating and $95 price target on Walgreens Boots Alliance's shares.

Valeant likely to lower 2016 guidance again, says Mizuho
Mizuho expects Valeant to report slightly lower than expected Q2 EPS. The firm says that the company's guidance implies that its operating spending will drop in 2H16. Mizuho thinks that this outlook is unrealistic. The firm adds that the company's belief that its revenue will be boosted by seasonality and improved economics from the Walgreens (WBA) deal could also be unrealistic. The firm reiterates an $11 price target and Unerperform ratingon Valeant.
