Amazon pushing to expand foothold in medical supplies, WSJ reports

Amazon (AMZN) is seeking to expand its medical supplies business into being major distributors to hospitals and outpatient clinics, The Wall Street Journal reports. Amazon is currently running a pilot with a Midwestern hospital system to supply its 150 outpatient facilities, according to the report. Typically, hospitals sign contracts to buy supplies directly from manufacturers or distributors like Owens & Minor (OMI), McKesson (MCK), Cardinal Health (CAH) and Medline Industries. Reference Link

Kroger needs to invest gross margin upside in lower prices, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh compared Whole Foods on Amazon (AMZN) Prime Now and Kroger's (KR) ClickList in the Cincinnati, Ohio market. The analyst overall finds Amazon's offering to be very compelling for Prime members, but argues that Kroger still has two key advantages that could somewhat limit potential share losses, namely Whole Foods prices are still at a premium, and Kroger's ClickList assortment is greater than Amazon Prime Now's Whole Foods assortment. Parikh believes Kroger needs to continue investing gross margin upside in lower prices to maintain/extend gaps versus Whole Foods, and as a result, investors should not view the Q3 margin upside as sustainable. He reiterates a Perform rating and $29 price target on Kroger's shares.

Costco price target raised to $200 from $188 at Argus
Argus analyst Chris Graja raised his price target on Costco (COST) to $200 citing the company's financial strength and the position to "deliver extreme values", along with its "excellent business plan execution", strong traffic, and membership renewals. Graja also says that there are many areas of Costco that would be difficult for Amazon (AMZN) or anyone else to match on price and quality, adding that his research suggests that Costco generally has lower prices. Th analyst keeps his Buy rating on Costco, adding that the "favorable economics of the new credit card program" have translated into even lower prices rather than higher short-term earnings.

'Ship with Amazon' gives options to merchants not storing with company, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst David Vernon believes Amazon (AMZN) is trying to grow Fulfillment by Amazon volume without growing the FBA physical footprint. The "Ship with Amazon" feature seems like an attempt to make Amazon transportation options available to a select list of merchants who do not wish to pay Amazon for the cost of storing their inventory the fulfillment centers, he contends. The analyst believes UPS (UPS) and FedEx (FDX) need to enforce commercial discipline and communicate better.

Amazon.com investors should take advantage of pullback, says DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Tom Forte keeps his Buy rating and $1,800 on Amazon.com but says that investors should take advantage of the latest pullback to add to their positions. In addition to valuation, Forte cites the press reports on the latest hiring of Jennifer Salke as the new head of Amazon Studios, thereby filling "an important void after a potential period of disruption" and bringing one of its most significant areas of investment - proprietary content - back on track. The analyst notes that among Salke's prior accomplishments as the President of NBC Entertainment were hit shows such as "This Is Us", "Glee", "Modern Family", and "Prison Break".

Amazon entry into healthcare markets focused on medical supplies, says Leerink
Leerink analyst David Larsen says that his recent research around Amazon's (AMZN) licensing activity has shown that the company's entry into healthcare markets is, at least for now, focused on medical supplies and devices rather than pharmaceuticals. The analyst believes Owens & Minor (OMI), Cardinal Health (CAH) and Henry Schein (HSIC) are most exposed but that it will take several years for Amazon Business to scale up manufacturer supply relationships to take significant share. Although the top and bottom line impact may be small over the next year or two, Larsen remains cautious on the group as multiples continue to reflect the Amazon threat as well as pricing and volume headwinds.

Recent pullback in drug distributors a buying opportunity, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Charles Ryhee said the recent pullback in drug distributors is unwarranted given the space's improving underlying fundamentals. He said the core distribution business is seeing stable generic pricing for both buy-side and sell-side and he believes concerns regarding likely proposed Medicare Part B changes are overblown. Ryhee reiterated his Outperform rating on both McKesson (MCK) and AmerisourceBergen (ABC) shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. McKesson (MCK) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut saying the combination of stabilizing generic drug pricing, a discounted valuation relative to peers and higher earnings estimates due to tax reform will "boost investor interest this year and push the stock's multiple to more appropriate levels." 2. Cree (CREE) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Williams Capital. 3. 3M (MMM) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Hilliard Lyons with analyst Spencer Joyce saying he sees as a tactical opportunity ahead of its earnings report as he expects estimates to rise following the company's fourth quarter earnings release. 4. Energen (EGN) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Evan Calio saying he expects oil markets to tighten and gas to remain weak in 2018. 5. Capital City Bank (CCBG) was upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Hovde Group and to Hold from Sell at Sandler O'Neill. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

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).
