AmerisourceBergen acquisition by Walgreens would model U.K., says Loop Capital

Loop Capital analyst Andrew Wolf believes that a Walgreens (WBA) and AmerisourceBergen (ABC) full merger would have similar attributes to that of the vertically integrated pharmacy model that Walgreens operates in the U.K. If completed, this transaction would come sooner than the analyst would have anticipated likely spurred by the rapid changes in pharmacy and healthcare occurring around Walgreens. Ultimately, Wolf views this strategic response positively as it would better position a combined company to navigate in the face of industry change and possibly even as a disrupter. He reiterates a Buy rating and $90 price target on Walgreens' shares.

Amazon's prescription drug market entry likely to be slow, says Leerink
Leerink analyst David Larsen believes there is a high likelihood that Amazon (AMZN) will enter the prescription drug market, but thinks it may take years for the company to become a meaningful and relevant entity in the channel. The analyst expects Amazon will start off small, and does not believe it will seek to do a big acquisition initially. Ultimately, Amazon may simply become another mail-order pharmacy that buys its product from AmerisourceBergen (ABC), he contends, adding that the massive Amazon related sell-off in CVS (CVS) and Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) in late 2017 view was over-done.

AmerisourceBergen acquisition by Walgreens makes sense, says Wells Fargo
Commenting on The Wall Street Journal report saying Walgreens (WBA) has approached AmerisourceBergen (ABC) in a takeover attempt and the companies remain early in their discussions, Wells Fargo analyst Peter Costa tells investors he believes the acquisition makes sense given the already existing long-term partnership and limited ability to merge laterally. Further, the analyst believes a potential combination could help lower costs and wring out synergies in the U.S. drug distribution channel, and better position Walgreens in the face of increasing competitive threat from a possible Amazon (AMZN) entry. However, a merger might risk alienating AmerisourceBergen's retail pharmacy customers that compete with Walgreens' pharmacies, he contends.

Walgreens deal for AmerisourceBergen would be 'headscratcher,' says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut says that while Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) acquiring AmerisourceBergen (ABC) would be accretive to earnings, it would be a "headscratcher" for investors. The companies already have a joint venture that affords both the strategic value that combining would provide, Tanquilut tells investors in a research note after the Wall Street Journal reported that Walgreens approached AmerisourceBergen a few weeks ago. The analyst has a Buy rating on Walgreens with a $93 price target. He adds that the potential deal would allow Walgreens to further expand its U.S. business.

Walgreens may seek to acquire AmerisourceBergen sooner than expected, says Leerink
Leerink analyst David Larsen notes that The Wall Street Journal reported that Walgreens (WBA) has approached AmerisourceBergen (ABC) about a potential takeover. The analyst is surprised that talks of such a large transaction have surfaced so quickly following the Rite Aid (RAD) deal, but says he has always believed that Walgreens at some point would seek to acquire either Express Scripts (ESRX) or AmerisourceBergen. Given the broad-based speculation in the business press about this deal, it is possible shares of Express Scripts will trade off, Larsen contends.

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.
