Rite Aid could trade to $3.50 or below if deal is not completed, says Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst Ross Muken believes Rite Aid (RAD) could have "massive" downside and would likely trade to $3.50 or below if the acquisition by Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) were not completed. For Walgreens, Muken said, if the deal is not completed, it would be a modest negative given the synergy potential and time committed to deal closure, but he expects Walgreen not to sit on the capital for very long and would look for a combination of share repurchases and additional M&A in the not-too-distant future.

Rite Aid-Walgreens deal closing 'way more likely than not,' says Cowen
After a Bloomberg article said that the FTC is concerned about the sale of Rite Aid (RAD) stores to Fred's (FRED) as a remedy to concerns about Walgreens' (WBA) takeover deal, Cowen analyst Charles Rhyee said that the report could reflect a split staff at FTC and the losing side making some noise or it could be a public negotiating tactic. Given the various paths forward, including litigation, Rhyee still thinks it is "way more likely than not" that this deal will ultimately close and views the weakness in Walgreens shares as a buying opportunity.

Outperform
Walgreens Boots Alliance, Rite Aid transaction still in-process, says Leerink
Leerink analyst David Larsen notes that he has confirmed with Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) that the deal with Rite Aid (RAD) would only terminate if either party were to walk away, which would require a formal announcement. Therefore, the analyst believes "no news is good news," and that the transaction is still in-process and on track. He reiterates an Outperform rating on Walgreens Boots Alliance's shares.

Fred's upgraded to Equal Weight after Rite Aid pact at Stephens
As previously reported, Stephens analyst Ben Bienvenu upgraded Fred's (FRED) to Equal Weight from Underweight citing the company's agreement to purchase 865 Rite Aid (RAD) stores from Walgreens (WBA), which he acknowledged "could be transformational longer term" if approved by the FTC. However, he also thinks the execution risk is very high in the near-term and notes that the retail pharmacy and discount retail industries are currently very competitive. Bienvenu raised his price target on Fred's shares to $17.50 from $7.

As previously reported, Leerink analyst David Larsen upgraded AmerisourceBergen (ABC) to Outperform from Market Perform and raised his price target on the shares to $95 from $75. The analyst believes the odds of the Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA)/Rite Aid (RAD) transaction going through have "increased substantially," and believes that the long-term partnership with Walgreens Boots Alliance will act as a positive driver for volumes. Long-term, Larsen believes that AmerisourceBergen will continue to benefit from growth in specialty, biosimilars, and generic launches, while recent commentary seems to indicate that generic deflation trends are moderating.
