AmerisourceBergen upgraded to Outperform at Leerink
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.

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.

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.

AMD new opportunities can drive $2B in incremental revenue, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Christian Schwab says AMD's (AMD) Ryzen family of CPUs is expected to at least match comparable Intel (INTC) performance and be able to undercut Intel on price, in some cases by a significant margin. The analyst believes AMD's success in developing a competitive "Zen" based desktop CPU bodes well for the company's upcoming "Zen" based server CPUs, launching in Q2. Further, Schwab continues to believe AMD has the ability to drive over $2B in incremental revenue from its new opportunities, and reiterates a Buy rating and $16 price target on the shares.

Ramsay said the company is re-emerging as a competitive second source to Intel (INTC), its gradual GPU unit share recovery should be supplemented by the Vega launch in higher value tier markets, and the company is focused on delivering a multi-generational roadmap with the customer backing and foundry partners to do so. Ramsay reiterated his Buy rating on AMD shares.

As previously reported, Craig-Hallum analyst Anthony Stoss downgraded Immersion (IMMR) to Hold from Buy as the company's revenue and net loss guide for 2017 was worse than expectations due to continued high litigation expense from the Apple (AAPL) trial and the potential for incremental expense should Immersion sue Samsung (SSNLF), and revenue guidance was worse than expected. The analyst also lowered his price target on Immersion's shares to $8 from $11.

Citi ups Apple target to $160 ahead of iPhone 'super-cycle'
Citi analyst Jim Suva raised his price target for Apple shares to $160 from $140 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. The stock closed Friday up 82c to $139.78. While the shares are hitting all-time highs, the iPhone 8 "super-cycle" is coming soon, which, along with Apple's growth opportunity in India, is likely to drive sales and earnings growth as well as valuation multiple expansion, Suva tells investors in a research note. India is now the world's second largest smartphone market, yet Apple has less than 2% market share, the analyst points out. Suva recommends buying Apple shares ahead of the iPhone 8 launch.

iPhone 8 may have STMicroelectronics facial recognition tech, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum notes there has been speculation that perhaps there will be component shortages preventing Apple (AAPL) from launching the iPhone 8 in late September. The speculation has surrounded finger print sensors, AMOLD panels and now 3D sensing components, the firm says, pointing out that most believe STMicroelectronics (STM) could have 2 sensors in iPhone 8. Furthermore, Craig-Hallum thinks the latter could have a new facial recognition technology in Apple's upcoming smartphone as well. The firm believes STMicroelectronics has already started to produce and stockpile parts for the Apple 8 and does not expect any issues on its side. Craig-Hallum notes that Samsung (SSNLF) officials have stated they will also put facial recognition in the upcoming Galaxy 8, which should be supplied by STMicroelectronics. The firm has a Buy rating on STMicroelectronics' shares.
