Cowen believes Walgreens will pursue Rite Aid even if FTC acts to block merger
Cowen analyst Charles Ryhee said the FTC decision on the merger between Walgreens (WBA)and Rite Aid (RAD) is too difficult to call, but he believes although Rite Aid will struggle on its own its value to Walgreens is significant. He also believes the value is well above the deal price range and so expects Walgreens will litigate the decision in an attempt to win an approval. Ryhee reiterated his Outperform rating but lowered his price target to $4.70 from $6.75 on Rite Aid shares.

Walgreens has upside with or without Rite Aid, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut believes shares of Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) have upside with or without the successful closing of the Rite Aid (RAD) acquisition. If the FTC blocks the deal, Walgreens is likely to put through a "sizeable" repurchase, Tanquilut tells investors in a research note. If the deal is approved, the analyst continues to expect earnings accretion beginning in 2018. The analyst finds it "difficult to handicap the odds" of an FTC approval. Nonetheless, he remains a buyer of Walgreens at current share levels. Tanquilut has a Buy rating on the name with a $95 price target.
