UnitedHealth, other MCOs should be bought on weakness, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Ana Gupte views MCOs, especially UnitedHealth (UNH), but also Anthem (ANTM), Cigna (CI) and Humana (HUM), as a "solid" buying opportunity on weakness, while remaining cautious on the Drug Value Chain post the sell-off on the Amazon.com (AMZN)/JPMorgan (JPM)/Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A; BRK.B) announcement. The analyst believes the drug supply chain is ripe for disruption, and Amazon's strengths play to such disruption to improve both cost, transparency and employee satisfaction, though timing as acknowledged by this new alliance is likely medium to long term. President Trump's State of the Union address also focused on drug pricing and affordability along with accelerated generic drug approvals as the top priority, making it more likely that this will be the key focus of the new partnership, she contends.

Amazon healthcare transparency focus negative for Castlight, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analysts lead by Ricky Goldwasser, Brian Nowak and Betsy Graseck said Amazon (AMZN), Berkshire (BRK.A) and JPMorgan's (JPM) new healthcare venture is the first evidence of Amazon's potential attempt to disrupt the insurance sector, though they expect this to be a slow process and do not expect material disruption overnight. Noting managed care organizations are tracking toward $15B-$20B in lost market cap, the team calls their move overdone. For this venture to be a direct competitor would require a sales organization, broker relationships and bolt on services, all of which could take time to develop, they stated, calling the pullback in the group "a buying opportunity when headlines slow down." However, Amazon's entry into healthcare transparency is viewed as an incremental negative for Castlight Health (CSLT), on which the firm keeps an Underweight rating. Publicly traded healthcare insurers sliding today include Aetna (AET), Anthem (ANTM), Centene (CNC), Cigna (CI), Humana (HUM), Molina Healthcare (MOH), UnitedHealth (UNH) and WellCare (WCG).

Unclear if Amazon partnership will accelerate pharmacy supply chain entry, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Ana Gupte notes that Amazon (AMZN), Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) have announced that they are forming an independent company that will be free of profit-taking motives and other constraints to improve healthcare costs and satisfaction for employees. The initial focus of the company is stated to be on technology solutions that will provide U.S. employees and their families with simplified high quality and transparent healthcare at a reasonable cost, she adds. The analyst points out that it is unclear if this means Amazon will accelerate its entry into the pharmacy supply chain. Gupte adds that this effort will be separate from the Health Transformation Alliance, which is also a consortium of 46 large self-insured employers looking to transform the healthcare system and includes UnitedHealth (UNH) Optum and CVS (CVS) as suppliers.

UnitedHealth well positioned to win partnership with Amazon, says Leerink
Following a MEDACorp Pulse Call with a former member of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' senior executive team, Leerink analyst Ana Gupte says she sees UnitedHealth (UNH) Optum Rx as well positioned to win in partnership with Amazon (AMZN) likely through nonexclusive contracts, though the latter is speculated to be joining the Health Transformation Alliance of large employers, of which Optum is part. Consistent with the view that Amazon is unlikely to make large acquisitions, it is expected to repurpose existing warehouses for regulated pharmaceuticals and lab supplies, she contends.
