Wal-Mart outlook still positive after Whole Foods deal, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc says that Wal-Mart (WMT) stock should be bought in the wake of the Whole Foods (WFM) deal, as the firm remains confident in Wal-Mart's ability to achieve 5%-9% earnings growth in fiscal 2018.

Wal-Mart, Costco could be hurt by Whole Foods deal, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Scot Ciccarelli warns that Wal-Mart (WMT) and Costco (COST) could be hurt by the Whole Foods deal. The analyst says that "combining Whole Foods' high-end reputation with a logistics juggernaut like Amazon is clearly a danger" to Costco and Walmart. He thinks that Whole Foods could extend the hours in which it allows customers to buy products online and pick them up in stores, and he thinks that food delivery could become much more popular in the wake of the deal. He notes that Wal-Mart has spent a great deal of time and money on "improving its fresh and omni-channel offerings." The analyst says that Costco will be more protected due to what he sees as its "differentiated retail experience."

Citi on Apple buying athenahealth? 'Never say never'
After CNBC reported that Apple (AAPL) is working on making the iPhone into a centralized management of patient health data, Citi analyst Garen Sarafian says athenahealth (ATHN) is a "well-suited candidate" to help. In a research note titled "Apple For athenahealth? Never Say Never," the analyst argues that athenahealth would accelerate Apple's efforts for interoperability. He believes Apple "would be one of few homes" that CEO Jonathan Bush would consider. Sarafian has a Buy rating on athenahealth with a $163 price target. The digital provider of medical records is down 42c to $142.34 in midday trading.

Recent Apple pullback largely due to overall tech weakness, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty believes the recent pullback in Apple shares, which are down 7% in the last week, is largely a result of overall weakness in the tech sector and not a change in investor sentiment towards the stock. She notes that Apple shares have risen an average of 18% in the 3 months prior to iPhone announcements over the last ten years, which she believes suggests the recent weakness creates an attractive opportunity to buy the stock. Huberyty keeps an Overweight rating and $177 price target on Apple.

Memory cycle may be plateauing, but not peaking, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst John Pitzer said Micron's significant "beat and raises" may be plateauing into the second half of the year, but not peaking, given that he sees the current memory cycle as one that will be "stronger-for-longer." To support that view, Pitzer points to increasing costs of capacity, new applications supporting diversification and demand and the fact that more time would be needed for a cycle-ending supply response.
