Walmart upgraded at Argus on low-income shoppers, high-quality stock seeekers

As previously reported, Argus analyst Christopher Graja upgraded Walmart to Buy from Hold, as he believes an improving job market should help low-and-middle-income shoppers spend more. He also sees the recent flattening of the Treasury yield curve leading some investors to boost their allocation to high-quality stocks like Walmart, Graja tells investors. He set a $100 price target on Walmart shares.

Dollar Tree downgraded to Outperform following pricing survey at Raymond James
As previously reported, Raymond James downgraded Dollar Tree (DLTR) to Outperform from Strong Buy and maintained a $110 price target. Analyst Dan Wewer's most recent pricing survey indicates Walmart's (WMT) pricing has turned more competitive, leaving value retailers to react by either lowering pricing in order to protect market share, which will impact negatively on margins, or maintain pricing, which could become a comp sales headwind once consumers take notice to Walmart's value offering. The analyst views Dollar Tree as the "best-in-class- value retailer, but sees risk of declining EBIT% from the lifetime highs in FY18.

Humana price target raised to $330 from $270 at Argus
Argus analyst David Toung raised his price target on Humana (HUM) to $330 and kept his Buy rating, citing the company's strong Q4 results along with the latest press speculation about acquisition interest from Wal-Mart (WMT). While the merger talks have not been confirmed, the analyst contends that Humana makes for an attractive takeover candidate for Wal-Mart in the wake of recent mergers in the industry, and their partnership would create the "nation's second-largest insurer of Medicare Advantage plans with the nation's largest brick-and-mortar retailer and fourth-largest pharmacy retailer". Toung adds that a strategic partnership would also make sense as it would allow Humana to remain independent and provide Wal-Mart with some insulation as it faces the challenges from Amazon (AMZN) and other online retailers.

Amazon, Trump news positive for drug supply chain, distributors, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Ana Gupte sees the dual pronged news flow on Amazon (AMZN) being unlikely to enter the Hospital drug supply chain, and President Trump poised to give a speech on drug pricing and supply chain reform on April 26 as HHS Secretary Alex Azar solicits ideas for pricing reform as positive for both the drug supply chain across PBMs and drug distributors and biopharma manufacturers that have been roiled by fears of margin compression on both these threats. Within her coverage, the analyst views this as positive for UnitedHealth (UNH) with its Optum Rx PBM, Cigna (CI) with its deal to acquire Express Scripts (ESRX), and Aetna (AET) which has inked a deal with CVS (CVS) in part through equity, as well as Anthem (ANTM) with IngenioRx and Humana (HUM) with or without its potential Walmart (WMT) deal that has a sizable mail order operation.
