340B exposure a non-issue for Walgreens Boots Alliance, says Needham

Needham analyst Kevin Caliendo notes that CMS proposed a cut to hospital outpatient reimbursement for the purchase of specialty drugs under the 340B program. The analyst believes Walgreens Boots Alliance has the largest exposure to 340B plans. However, the company said that 340B represented less than 1% of total U.S. pharmacy Rxs for the company, Caliendo adds. He reiterates a Buy rating and $94 price target on the shares.

Jefferies sees Walgreens topping new synergy target
Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut fully expects Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) to exceed its new synergy target from the purchase of Rite Aid (RAD) stores. He also expects the FTC to approve the new agreement as he thinks Walgreens wouldn't have entered into it if the agency wasn't fully aware and on-board with the revised transaction. The analyst views the recent pullback in Walgreens shares as overdone and keeps a Buy rating on the name with a $95 price target.

Rite Aid better positioned following new agreement, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Charles Ryhee said he is positive on the new Rite Aid (RAD) agreement with Walgreens (WBA) as it better positions the company than had it remained stand-alone with no deal at all. Benefits include deleveraging, lower generic procurement costs, increased financial flexibility and "great" leverage toward PBM, which is growing faster than retail. Ryhee reiterated his Outperform rating and $4.70 price target on Rite Aid shares.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Cabot Oil & Gas (COG) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Doug Leggate saying Cabot 's gross Marcellus takeaway capacity will increase to 3.7 bcf/d from 2bcf/d by end of 2018 and positioned to increase free cash flow to $2B from $872M per year for 25 years. 2. Becton Dickinson (BDX) upgraded to Strong Buy from Outperform at Raymond James with analyst Lawrence Keusch saying he believes it should be a core holding based an an above average outlook for 5%-6% organic growth and mid-teens earnings increases with further potential upside. 3. Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Needham. 4. ManTech (MANT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Loop Capital with analyst Joseph Vafi saying he sees "company-specific and secular catalysts" driving improving fundamentals and upward revisions to consensus estimates. 5. D.R. Horton (DHI) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with the firm saying it is uniquely positioned to capitalize on an unexpectedly tight and historically low existing home inventories, while new home demand remains broadly resilient despite rising prices.
