Washington regulator tells Bloomberg has no direct info on Aetna, CVS review

The Washington State insurance regulator tells Bloomberg in an emailed statement that it has no direct information on the DOJ review of the Aetna (AET) and CVS Health (CVS) deal and has not had contact with the DOJ about the review. This follows an earlier Reorg Research report, which cited an official with Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner, that said the Department of Justice is not, "at this point," looking to challenge in court CVS Health's planned takeover of the insurer.

Amazon deal not to materially impact managed care segment, says Cantor Fitzgerald
Following the announcement that Amazon (AMZN) is acquiring PillPack, Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Steven Halper notes that back in April, CNBC had reported that Walmart (WMT) and Amazon were both looking to acquire the company, with Walmart likely to pay under $1B for PillPack. At this juncture, the analyst is not worried about Amazon's entrance into the prescription market and does not expect a material impact on any of the companies he covers in the managed care segment. Halper reiterates an Overweight rating of Aetna (AET), Anthem (ANTM), Centene (CNC), UnitedHealth (UNH) and Wellcare (WCG). He keeps a Neutral rating on Humana (HUM).

CVS Health price target lowered to $84 from $91 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst George Hill lowered his price target on CVS Health Corp (CVS) to $84 after Amazon (AMZN) announced its entry into the pharmacy space with the acquisition of PillPack, even though he believes that the "stickiness of payer/pharmacy relationships, decreasing share of mail order, and PillPack's market share" will not cut margins in near to medium term. Hill keeps his Outperform rating on CVS, noting that it is better positioned to continue to grow its EBIT than Walgreens (WBA). The analyst also sees Amazon's entry into drug distribution raising the possibility of DOJ approval of CVS's Aetna (AET) acquisition.

Buy
CVS Health assumed to Buy from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Ralph Giacobbe upgraded CVS Health (CVS) to Buy after assuming coverage of the name. The analyst raised his price target for the shares to $81 from $68. While the execution of an integrated healthcare superstore post the pending Aetna (AET) acquisition may be a long way off, the concept will resonate with employers and individuals, Giacobbe tells investors in a research note. He believes deal integration and competitive Amazon (AMZN) risk are "somewhat overstated particularly in the context of heavily discounted valuation."

Risk adjuster suspension positive for Centene and Molina, says Piper Jaffray
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services suspending risk adjusters for the health exchange will likely cost the government and consumers more, but it could be positive for Centene (CNC) and Molina Healthcare (MOH), Piper Jaffray analyst Sarah James tells investors in a research note. Both companies are in a net payable position for 2017 and not having to pay these funds would allow the plans to retain cash, the analyst adds. James also sees a positive read-through for UnitedHealth (UNH), Aetna (AET) and Cigna (CI). The analyst finds it most likely that CMS will seek to adjust the risk adjusters in the end rather than cancel the program, but she adds the agency only has a few weeks for them to sort this out, which she feels is not enough time.

Hold
Walgreens Boots Alliance downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut downgraded Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) to Hold and lowered his price target for the shares to $65 from $85. The stock closed yesterday down 10%, or $6.56, to $59.70. Amazon's (AMZN) acquisition of mail order pharmacy PillPack has "enlarged the overhang" on the retail pharmacy space, Tanquilut tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes the deal could prevent both Walgreens and CVS Health (CVS) from seeing meaningful stock upside near-term. Further, Walgreens' Q3 results, which saw "weak" same-store-sales trends, do not help diffuse the perceived risk that Amazon brings to the company, Tanquilut argues.

CVS, Express Scripts should be bought on recent selloff, says Mizuho
Mizuho analyst Ann Hynes recommends buying shares of CVS Health (CVS) and Express Scripts (ESRX) on weakness related to the announcement Amazon (AMZN) is entering the pharmacy space with its acquisition of PillPack. PillPack is a small mail order pharmacy, similar to the mail order pharmacies embedded in CVS Caremark, Express Scripts and OptumRx, Hynes tells investors in a research note.
