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.

USG board would likely agree to $45-$52 per share offer, says Jefferies
After taking a closer look at comparable transactions, Jefferies analyst Philip Ng believes a USG (USG) takeout price the board would agree to likely is in the $45-$52 per share range. Saint Gobain is the only logical strategic buyer that could potentially counter with a competitive offer to Knauf's, Ng tells investors in a research note. The analyst thinks Berkshire (BRK.A) appears to be a willing seller. He keeps a Hold rating on USG with a $36 price target.

Efforts to strengthen in-store healthcare offering positive for Walmart, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Edward Yruma notes that the push to provide consumer-driven and lower-cost healthcare continues its push into retail as The Wall Street Journal reports that Walmart (WMT) is in discussions to acquire or develop a closer partnership Humana (HUM). This is on the heels of Amazon's (AMZN) recent JV with Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A; BRK.B) and JPMorgan (JPM) to provide healthcare for employees, he adds. The analyst views any efforts to strengthen the in-store healthcare offering as a positive for Walmart's stock.

No news from GE could be considered good news, says Citi
Outside of a potential investment from Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A), "no news" could be viewed as "good news" for General Electric (GE), Citi analyst Andrew Kaplowitz tells investors in a research note. No significant new "issues" have emerged following the announcement of GE's insurance reserves funding plan, nor in the company's annual filing published in late February, Kaplowitz argues. He believes that the more time passes with no significant new issues emerging, the more investors can gain confidence that new management can fully focus on executing a turnaround. Further, he sees "at least three specific areas in which inflections over the coming year could serve as catalysts to changing the narrative:" improving cash generation, asset sale announcements, and potentially inflecting energy end markets. Kaplowitz keeps a Buy rating on shares of General Electric. The stock closed yesterday down 36c to $13.12.

Amazon consortium could be longer-term health care disruptor, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Kevin Ellich says that Amazon (AMZN), Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A; BRK.B), and JPMorgan (JPM) new company focused initially on technology solutions to provide simplified, high-quality, and transparent healthcare for their employees and families at a reasonable cost could be a longer-term health care disruptor but it may a little premature to jump to conclusions.

USG price target raised to $44 from $34 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Keith Hughes raised his price target on USG (USG) to $44, saying he expects Knauf to raise its offer price for the company above the latest $42 bid while also anticipating the deal to close. Hughes adds that the support for the deal from Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) "greatly increases the odds" that the deal is finalized. Hughes keeps his Hold rating on USG.
