Amazon may be the next threat to drug pricing, says Wells Fargo
After CNBC recently reported that Amazon (AMZN) is considering going into the prescription pharmacy business in the U.S., Wells Fargo surveyed nearly 2,900 U.S. adults and found that 54% of those polled said they would use or would probably use "Amazon Pharmacy." While the e-commerce giant has not confirmed its U.S. pharmacy interest, if it did enter the market analyst David Maris believes it could see fast adoption and "usher in a new age of price transparency." Maris also wonders if pharmacy "may be just the beginning" and if Amazon eyes the "even larger prize" of fully integrated digital healthcare. Publicly traded large-cap pharmaceuticals companies include AstraZeneca (AZN), Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Merck (MRK), Novartis (NVS), Pfizer (PFE), Roche (RHHBY) and Sanofi (SNY). Publicly traded retail pharmacy operators include CVS Health (CVS), Walgreens (WBA), Fred's (FRED) and Rite Aid (RAD).

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.

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.

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.
