Henry Schein, Patterson mentioned cautiously at Cleveland Research

Cleveland Research made cautious comments regarding Amazon's (AMZN) headway into the dental industry, saying that its checks indicate that manufacturers are being more open to offer their full product lines to the e-commerce giant, which could pressure industry incumbents Henry Schein (HSIC) and Patterson (PDCO).

Amazon disruption of healthcare 'a foregone conclusion,' says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley's U.S. Internet and Healthcare teams collaborated on a report exploring Amazon's (AMZN) entry into healthcare, stating that it will likely take time but that the e-commerce giant's "disruption of healthcare is a foregone conclusion." While retail plays to Amazon's strengths with the highest profits and lowest barriers to entry, retailers like CVS (CVS) and Walgreens (WBA) have the most opportunities to adjust their business models and lower costs to defend against Amazon, the teams tell investors. Medical supply and Life Sciences distribution are "less rich" targets, but look like "low-hanging fruit," the analysts added. Cardinal Health (CAH) has the most exposure via its medical supply distribution segment, said the firm, which downgraded Cardinal to Underweight from Equal Weight, as previously reported. McKesson (MCK) also has some, but less, risk and AmerisourceBergen (ABC), which doesn't distribute medical supplies, remains immune in the near-term, the firm concluded. Others in healthcare distribution facing the most share and/or margin risk from Amazon include Thermo Fisher (TMO), Henry Schein (HSIC) and Patterson (PDCO), the firm added.

Equal Weight
Patterson Companies initiated with an Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Steve Beuchaw initiated Patterson Companies (PDCO) with an Equal Weight rating and $42 price target, saying the firm's AlphaWise survey suggests Patterson should take back share in 2018 and recover to 4% organic growth. However, he sees greater upside to consensus EPS elsewhere. Beuchaw also started dental industry peer Henry Schein (HSIC) with an Equal Weight rating this morning.

With short interest rising, Stifel upgrades Patterson Companies to Hold
As previously reported, Stifel analyst Jonathan Block upgraded Patterson Companies (PDCO) to Hold from Sell, though he made clear to investors he still believes the company faces significant challenges. However, the stock has reached a five-year trough valuation and sentiment among the dental distributors is close to all-time lows amid worries about Amazon (AMZN) competition, Block points out. He also notes that short interest in Patterson has recently been moving higher. Block keeps a $34 price target on the stock.

Atlas Air takeover by Amazon unlikely, says Stifel
Stifel analyst David Ross notes there has been speculation in the market of a takeover of Atlas Air Worldwide (AAWW) by Amazon.com (AMZN). The analyst sees an outright buyout of the company as unlikely. However, Ross sees a "real possibility" of Amazon extending its contract with Atlas beyond the initial order of 20 planes. He reiterates a Buy rating on the shares. Atlas Air shares are up 2% to $56.00 in afternoon trading. The analyst on November 8 upgraded the aircraft services outsourcer to Buy with a $69 price target.

Strong attendance at Amazon conference reinforces AWS leading position, says KeyBanc

The analyst expects news flow to pick up materially into the keynotes on Wednesday and Thursday mornings, and says that the strong attendance reinforces AWS market leading position as the largest cloud platform in IaaS/PaaS.

Amazon allows deeper TV discounting at Best Buy, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter notes that online checks suggest that Best Buy (BBY) undercut Amazon (AMZN) on TV pricing throughout the Thanksgiving Holiday period, with deals continuing at Best Buy after Cyber Monday, while Amazon surprised him by raising prices. Additionally, the analyst believes Best Buy's Q4 comps guidance is more realistic, due to "Amazon's mercy." He reiterates an Underperform rating and $32 price target on Best Buy's shares.

Sector Perform
Wal-Mart upgraded to Sector Perform at RBC Capital on investment prospects
As reported earlier, RBC Capital analyst Scot Ciccarelli upgraded Wal-Mart (WMT) to Sector Perform from Underperform and raised his price target to $96 from $92. Ciccarelli says the company's earnings growth will remain suppressed by a multi-year investment cycle, but it will ultimately come out as a "true competitor" to Amazon (AMZN). The analyst says the rating change is specifically driven by recognition of Wal-Mart's progress in upgrading its store environment and labor model as well as the vast improvements made in its e-commerce capabilities which helped generate 13 consecutive quarters of positive comps and 12 quarters of positive traffic.
