Amazon-Berkshire-JPMorgan healthcare joint venture names Atul Gawande CEO

Amazon (AMZN), Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) announced the next step in their partnership on U.S. employee healthcare with the appointment of Atul Gawande as its CEO, effective July 9. The new company will be headquartered in Boston and will operate as an independent entity that is free from profit-making incentives and constraints. Gawande is a surgeon, writer and public health innovator. He practices general and endocrine surgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital and is Professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Harvard Medical School. He is founding executive director of the health systems innovation center, Ariadne Labs. He also is a staff writer for The New Yorker magazine. "I'm thrilled to be named CEO of this healthcare initiative," said Gawande, "I have devoted my public health career to building scalable solutions for better healthcare delivery that are saving lives, reducing suffering, and eliminating wasteful spending both in the US and across the world. Now I have the backing of these remarkable organizations to pursue this mission with even greater impact for more than a million people, and in doing so incubate better models of care for all. This work will take time but must be done. The system is broken, and better is possible."

Morgan Stanley says AT&T ruling may help narrow public/private media value gap
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne said the court approval of AT&T's (T) acquisition of Time Warner (TWX) without conditions recognized the reality of new competition in the form of content investments from players such as Netflix (NFLX), Google's (GOOGL) YouTube, Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL) and Facebook (FB). This ruling sends a "clear message to other industry players" and market uncertainty on deal prospects could fall, which could mean that equity values will likely rise accordingly, Swinburne tells investors. He notes there remains a large gap, which may now narrow, between private market valuations and public multiples in many parts of media and cable, pointing to Discovery Inc. (DISCK) as an example illustrating that point.

DA Davidson analyst Tom Forte raised his price on Amazon.com to $2,100 and kept his Buy rating, citing his updated model projecting incremental revenue generated by the company's private-label and ad efforts relative to his prior forecasts. Forte says he is raising his sales growth projections by 1% for the forward years and still expects longer-term adjusted EBITDA margin to reach 20% vs. 11.1% in 2017.

Underweight
Etsy fee increase made from position of strength, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said Etsy's (ETSY) planned fee increase is a "smart strategic move from a position of strength" that will bring it into closer alignment with third-party commission rates charged by eBay (EBAY), Amazon (AMZN) and JD.com (JD). While the higher fees will help Etsy invest to attract new buyers, increase marketing and enhance support, Nowak believes the stock's current valuation relative to growth is already pricing in execution and return on these investments, he tells investors. Nowak is reviewing his estimates for Etsy, but currently has an Underweight rating on the stock.

Alarm.com downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Gabriela Borges downgraded Alarm.com (ALRM) to Sell and lowered her price target for the shares to $37 from $41. The analyst's analysis indicates that new "Do it Yourself" deployments with professional monitoring are 35% cheaper than professionally installed and monitored security systems. This creates risk to subscriber growth and unit economics in the existing home security ecosystem, which drives the majority of Alarm.com's business, Borges tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst believes the Amazon (AMZN) versus Google (GOOG, GOOGL) battle for dominance in the connected home will likely cap Alarm.com's ability to expand beyond its core market. She finds Alarm.com's risk/reward unfavorable at current valuations.

Bank of America is the best of the 'big four' U.S. banks, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham kept his Market Perform rating and $34 price target on Bank of America (BAC) after its in-line Q1 earnings but raised his FY18 EPS view to $2.62 from $2.59 and FY19 view to $3.18 from $3.12. Fotheringham says than in contrast, he lowered earnings forecasts for JPMorgan (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC), and Citigroup (C) because of higher costs and lower revenues, but Bank of America's better than expected net interest income rise justifies his view of the bank as the "best of the bunch". The analyst also notes the bank's more favorable valuation trading at a below-average two-year-forward P/E multiple despite his forecast of double the core earnings growth rate of Bank of America's peers.

Bernstein offers list of possible CEOs for Amazon-Berkshire-JPMorgan venture
After Berkshire' (BRK.A) Warren Buffett and JPMorgan's (JPM) Jamie Dimon announced on CNBC that they have selected a CEO for their healthcare joint venture with Amazon (AMZN) and added that they would announce the name in about two weeks, Bernstein analyst Lance Wilkes noted that Geisinger CEO David Feinberg denied accepting the position and said he is committed to Geisinger. The ultimate choice of the CEO will inform on the intended scope of the NewCo and how the companies will prioritize strategic direction and needed capabilities, said Wilkes, who offered a list of potential CEO candidates that includes Gary Loveman, Rick Jelinek, Matt Manders, Patrick Conway, Amir Rubin, Owen Tripp, Chris Grant, Marc Harrison, Andy Slavitt, Todd Park and Peter Orszag.

PG&E would be 'contiguous fit' in Berkshire power portfolio, says Gordon Haskett
Gordon Haskett analyst Don Bilson noted that Warren Buffett bought Portland-based PacifiCorp in 2005 and then bought a Nevada utility in 2013, adding that PG&E (PCG) would be a "contiguous fit" in Berkshire Hathaway's (BRK.A) portfolio. PG&E's current market cap of $20B is "hardly daunting" for Berkshire, added Bilson, who also noted that recent media reports indicate that Elliott Management, which butted heads with Buffett last year when Berkshire was trying to buy a Texas utility, is also involved with a stake in PG&E.

He keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.

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.

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.

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.

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.
