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.

Deutsche says Rite Aid could fall 53% if Walgreens deal fails
Deutsche Bank analyst George Hill points out that according to recent media reports, the Federal Trade Commission still has issues with Walgreens Boots Alliance's (WBA) proposed acquisition of Rite Aid (RAD) as well as Fred's (FRED) as a buyer of divested stores. Should the deal fail to close, Walgreens shares have downside to the $73-$79 range, or up to 14%, Hill tells investors in a research note, citing his analysis. Rite Aid shares, the analyst suspects, could fall to $2.25 per share, or 53% from current levels, the analyst contends. He believes a key to Walgreens' decision to certify compliance with the second request could be the current makeup of the FTC, which has three vacant seats along with a Democratic Commissioner and Republican Chairperson. Hill has a Buy rating on Walgreens with a $92 price target, which he notes excludes Rite Aid.

Leerink incrementally more cautious on Walgreens, Rite Aid deal
After reviewing the Rite Aid (RAD)/Fred's (FRED) remedy in more detail, Leerink analyst David Larsen says the odds of the Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA)/Rite Aid deal going through are 50/50. The analyst notes that shares of the latter appear to be trading as if the deal will not go through. Larsen is incrementally more cautious on the deal, but believes that the odds of the transaction going through are "decent." He reiterates an Outperform rating and $90 price target on Walgreens' shares.

Cowen confidence fading on Walgreens/Rite Aid deal
Cowen analyst Charles Ryhee said although his confidence has faded a bit on whether the deal for Walgreens (WBA) to buy Rite Aid (RAD) will close, he still puts the probability at 60%. He feels if the FTC did not think the parties had a case they would have made that clear already. Rhee said his sources tell him there are continued reports the FTC is concerned about the viability of Fred's (FRED) to absorb the acquisition of Rite Aid stores. Ryhee maintained his Outperform rating and lowered his price target to $90 from $95 on Walgreens shares.
