AmerisourceBergen settlement ups odds of PharMerica switch, says Baird
Baird analyst Eric Coldwell said AmerisourceBergen's (ABC) 10-Q last week showed that the company and PharMerica (PMC) have tentatively agreed to settle their long-running legal fight, which he reads as significantly increasing the odds of AmerisourceBergen displacing incumbent Cardinal Health (CAH) after KKR (KKR) and minority investor Walgreens (WBA) complete their deal to buy PharMerica. Coldwell has a Neutral rating and $89 price target on AmerisourceBergen shares.

Walgreens Boots Alliance should see upside from new Rite Aid deal, says UBS
UBS analyst Michael Cherny said his review of the new Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) deal with Rite Aid (RAD) would provide immediate accretion from synergy opportunities if the deal is approved. He believes it can provide meaningful upside to earnings as well as remove the lack of clarity on capital deployment-driven earnings contribution. Thus, he sees the shares as having a positive risk/reward skew. Cherny reiterated his Buy rating and lowered his price target to $96 from $97 on Walgreens shares.
