Walgreens reports Q1 Retail Pharmacy USA sales $22.25B

Retail Pharmacy USA had first quarter sales of $22.5 billion, an increase of 8.9 percent over the year-ago quarter. Sales in comparable stores increased 4.7 percent compared with the same quarter a year ago. Pharmacy sales, which accounted for 72.4 percent of the division's sales in the quarter, increased 14.1 percent compared with the year-ago quarter, primarily due to higher prescription volumes, including mail and central specialty following the formation of AllianceRx Walgreens Prime. Comparable pharmacy sales increased 7.4 percent, primarily due to higher volume. Reimbursement pressure and generics had negative impacts on comparable pharmacy sales growth, which was partially offset by brand inflation.Retail Pharmacy International had first quarter sales of $3.1 billion, an increase of 4.1 percent from the year-ago quarter due to currency translation. Sales decreased 0.8 percent on a constant currency basis. On a constant currency basis, comparable store sales decreased 0.7 percent compared with the year-ago quarter. Pharmaceutical Wholesale had first quarter sales of $5.7 billion, an increase of 5.6 percent from the year-ago quarter. On a constant currency basis, comparable sales increased 4.5 percent, which was behind the company's estimate of market growth, weighted on the basis of country wholesale sales, due to challenging market conditions in certain continental European countries, partially offset by strong performance in emerging markets.

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).

AmerisourceBergen price target raised to $105 from $90 at Leerink
Leerink analyst David Larsen raised his price target for AmerisourceBergen (ABC) to $105 from $90, citing the H.D. Smith transaction and a more positive outlook for 2018 and 2019. The analyst notes that the company has completed its major renewals, generic deflation is stabilizing, and it will benefit from Prime, Rite Aid (RAD) and Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) volumes in 2018. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.
