Walgreens steps up beauty emphasis with Birchbox partnership, CNBC reports

Walgreens is stepping up its emphasis on beauty with a new partnership with Birchbox, CNBC reports. Walgreens, which will take a minority stake in the digital beauty subscription company, will start a pilot program with Birchbox in 11 Walgreens stores Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis and New York City, as well as an online partnership, with Walgreens adding a Birchbox section to its website, according to the report. "Beauty is a very important category for Walgreens, and we've been doing a huge amount of work to get ourselves ready for a partnership like this to take us to the next step," said Lauren Brindley, Walgreens' group vice president of beauty and personal care.

Pharmacy business sale could be next step for Kroger, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Edward Kelly believes Kroger (KR) has taken aggressive steps recently to better position itself for the long-term, and a potential next step could be the sale of its pharmacy business. The analyst notes that the strategic argument is stronger than ever given structural changes in pharmacy, an underappreciated opportunity to unlock material value, and it seems highly aligned with management's more progressive approach. Recent news of a partnership with Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) on a store pilot should not be overlooked, he adds, as dialogue between the companies on ways to create value could foretell a more significant relationship. Kelly reiterates an Outperform rating on Kroger shares.

Fred's sells pharmacy files to Walgreens for 'good valuation,' says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Andrew Wolf noted that Fred's (FRED) announced that Walgreens (WBA) will acquire pharmacy prescription files and related pharmacy inventory of 185 Fred's stores located across 10 Southeastern states subject to regulatory approval. The deal values the prescript files at $165M, which the analyst views as a "good valuation" particularly since Walgreens will also acquire the associated pharmacy inventory for up to $36M. Wolf believes the strategic basis for Walgreens to pay this "solid" valuation for the prescription files from Fred's was fortified by its recent purchase of 1,932 Rite Aid (RAD) stores, many in the same Southeastern footprint as Fred's. The analyst reiterates a Hold rating and $2 price target on Fred's shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Papa John's (PZZA) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Stifel with analyst Chris O'Cull saying the outlook for Papa John's is "growing dimmer" after recent media reports indicated a "fraternal corporate culture." 2. Buckeye Partners (BPL) downgraded to Sell from Hold at SunTrust with analyst Tristan Richardson saying the latest negative action by Moody's was "quicker than expected" and may lead to a cut in the company's distribution. 3. Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Cowen with analyst Charles Ryhee saying he views it as poorly positioned in the move toward value-based care and believes the ownership of, rather than a partnership with, an insurance company is necessary to realize the benefits of cost trend improvements. 4. General Electric (GE) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst John Eade saying that despite his expectations of a turnaround, Q2 results were a "step in the opposite direction" suggesting the company will struggle to meet its FY18 guidance. 5. Philip Morris (PM) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Societe Generale. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Walgreens Boots Alliance downgraded to Market Perform at Cowen
As reported previously, Cowen analyst Charles Ryhee downgraded Walgreens Boots Alliance to Market Perform from Outperform. The analyst views it as poorly positioned in the move toward value-based care and believes the ownership of, rather than a partnership with, an insurance company is necessary to realize the benefits of cost trend improvements. Ryhee lowered his price target to $71 from $77 on Walgreen's Boots Alliance shares.
