Jefferies sees drugstore sentiment improving with no Amazon news
Investors were anticipating an announcement from Amazon.com (AMZN) regarding a pharmacy strategy around Thanksgiving due to recent media reports and the resulting sell-side speculation, Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut tells investors in a research note. With no Amazon pharmacy entry announced one week removed from the holiday, the analyst believes investor sentiment over the drug supply chain may gradually improve, at least in the near-term. He notes that the price-to-earnings multiples of Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) and CVS Health (CVS) have already declined amid speculation of an Amazon entry. Tanquilut acknowledges, however, that the Amazon overhang will not completely go away. The analyst has Buy ratings on UnitedHealth (UNH) and Walgreens, and Hold ratings on AmerisourceBergen (ABC), Cardinal Health (CAH), CVS and McKesson (MCK).

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.
