Amazon appears headed toward direct competition with parcel carriers, says Morgan Stanley

Following a Capitol Forum report that said Amazon (AMZN) is asking multi-carrier shipping software platforms to add it as a carrier option for vendors before the end of 2018, Morgan Stanley analysts Ravi Shanker and Brian Nowak said this would be the latest development in the e-commerce giant's push to become an independent logistics/parcel company and would be a quick evolution. The analysts do not know how Amazon's reported offering might price against the incumbents, but their work estimates that it could be up to 2/3rd cheaper than UPS (UPS) at like density, they tell investors. The analysts remain concerned about secular competitive threats facing UPS and FedEx (FDX), but said they do not believe Amazon has, or wants to build, a network of the scale of the incumbent parcel carriers.

Amazon.com price target raised to $1,700 from $1,600 at Needham
Needham analyst Kerry Rice raised his price target on Amazon to $1,700 after a "successful" holiday season and Q4 earnings that showed accelerating e-commerce revenue and expanding operating margins along with rising market share of Amazon Prime internationally. Rice believes that despite the "choppiness" in profitability going forward based on the timing of investments, revenue should continue to grow in all three segments with the company solidifying its market leadership in e-commerce and AWS. Rice keeps his Buy rating on Amazon.

More pronounced risks to drug supply chain from Amazon coalition, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Lance Wilkes thinks the risks to the drug supply chain from Amazon (AMZN), JPMorgan (JPM) and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A; BRK.B) healthcare joint venture are much more pronounced than risks to traditional MCOs. The analyst thinks the coalition could acquire a transparency PBM, effectively creating an employer PBM Co-op.

Deutsche finds 91% of Ulta's best sellers available on Amazon
Deutsche Bank analyst Mike Baker says his survey indicates that 91% of Ulta Beauty's (ULTA) best-selling items are available on Amazon (AMZN). The analyst looked at a collection of the 81 best sellers listed on Ulta's website across the major categories and found that 74 of them are available on Amazon. This compares to studies in the summer and fall of 2017 where there was 67% and 78% overlap, respectively, Baker tells investors in a research note. Thus, Amazon has "significantly closed the availability gap with Ulta in a short period of time," the analyst contends. He believes that as more of these products are sold directly by Amazon, the pricing gap with Ulta will likely continue to narrow. With Amazon's pricing getting more competitive, Baker lowered his price target for Ulta Beauty shares to $260 from $275. He keeps a Hold rating on the name.

Parcel shipping rates should rise over long-term, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Allison Landry notes that on the back of President Trump's tweet late last week, questions have resurfaced as to whether the USPS has been subsidizing Amazon's (AMZN) logistics costs by charging below market rates in the competitive parcel market, and using its monopoly power in First Class mail to cross-subsidize parcel delivery costs. The analyst believes this is yet another data point that supports her thesis that parcel shipping rates will rise over the long-term as she sees the potential for Postal Reform to be addressed by Congress in 2018. Landry thinks it is only a matter of time before the USPS is forced to raise rates in its package business, which would be a clear positive for FedEx (FDX) and UPS (UPS).

BMO Capital analyst Fadi Chamoun lowered the price target on UPS to $130 after Q4 results came in below expectations. The analyst notes that the company continues to experience operating margin compression in the U.S. network due to ongoing heavy investment cycle, having raised capital spending for aircraft purchases and other assets to improve capacity and productivity. Chamoun keeps the Market Perform rating on UPS.

Deutsche names UPS a Top Pick, ups price target to $145
Deutsche Bank analyst Amit Mehrotra raised his price target for UPS (UPS) to $145 and $135 and elevated the shares to Top Pick status in Air Freight & Logistics, along with Knight-Swift (KNX), FedEx (FDX) and XPO Logistics (XPO). The analyst's earnings estimates for UPS have been revised 10% higher to reflect the passage of corporate tax reform. He also estimates that tax reform equates to about $1B of incremental free cash flow per annum. 5% cash tax rate. Mehrotra believes UPS shares are underappreciated and he maintains a Buy rating on the name.

Citi says all Transports win under U.S. tax bill
The Tax Cut and Jobs Act drives a "meaningful step up" in earnings as well as free cash flow for essentially all names in Transportation, Citi analyst Christian Wetherbee tells investors in a research note. He sees U.S. Rails as likely the biggest winners from tax reform. In most cases companies will use the cash "windfall" for buybacks, Wetherbee tells investors in a research note. He believes, however, that a compelling case can be made for U.S. Rails to increase dividends by 15%-20%. The free cash flow windfall could save UPS's (UPS) buyback program, which looked likely to decline in 2018 under the weight of accelerating capex, the analyst adds. Wetherbee upgraded C.H. Robinson Worldwide (CHRW) to Buy and downgraded Schneider National (SNCR) to Neutral. He also raised his price target for Buy-rated FedEx (FDX) to $304 from $280, Buy-rated CSX (CSX) to $64 from $58 and for Buy-rated UPS to $143 from $128.
