Outperform
CVS Health price target raised to $95 from $85 at Leerink
Leerink analyst David Larsen raised his price target for CVS Health (CVS) to $95 from $85 following quarterly results. The analyst is encouraged that the deal with Aetna (AET) appears to be ready to close in the near-term, which he believes will be a positive catalyst for the stock. Larsen also likes how the PBM selling season seems to be progressing well, better than he had expected, and also likes how CVS seems to be re-focusing on the Retail "Streamline" efforts, which will hopefully result in net savings in 2019. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on CVS shares.

CVS Health price target raised to $100 from $88 at Argus
Argus analyst Chris Graja raised his price target on CVS Health (CVS) to $100 and kept his Buy rating after its Q3 earnings beat, saying he remains "bullish on the management's ability to find innovative and profitable ways to reduce healthcare costs and deliver better care". The analyst also notes that he sees "significant upside for the shares if the company can close acquisition of Aetna (AET) and deliver on its financial targets". To that end, Graja cites the management's confidence expressed on the earnings call that the transaction can be closed prior to Thanksgiving and yield more than the initially estimated $750M in 2-year synergy benefits.

Jefferies not sure how Humana would benefit from Walgreens stake
The stake talks between Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) and Humana (HUM), as reported last night by the Wall Street Journal, follows in the pattern of the Aetna (AET)/CVS Health (CVS) deal, but it is not fully clear how Humana would benefit from an investment in Walgreens, Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut tells investors in a research note. For Walgreens, a partnership approach matches the company's strategy and would help address questions about the long-term viability of the retail pharmacy model, adds the analyst. He believes partnering with Humana helps Walgreens drive market share. Further, a deal could also help strengthen Humana's brand and improve its ability to market directly to prospective insurance lives, especially as healthcare increasingly becomes consumer-focused, Tanquilut says.

Humana-Walgreens strategic deal makes sense, takeout less likely, says Leerink
Following a media report saying that Humana (HUM) and Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) are in talks to take stakes in each other and possibly expand their retail clinic partnership inked on June 19, Leerink analyst Ana Gupte says she believes it makes strategic sense, though she believes an outright takeout is less likely given the multiple differential. As MCOs backward integrate into care delivery, the analyst believes a closer strategic alignment between the two companies can help Humana better compete with the likes of CVS (CVS)-Aetna (AET) and Optum-UnitedHealth (UNH) in the Medicare Advantage market while allowing Walgreens to further stave off e-commerce threats such as Amazon (AMZN), though Humana maintains its strategic investment focus on the home healthcare setting for Seniors.

Jefferies uncovers signs of Amazon expanding prescription drug presence
Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut says his proprietary checks of Amazon.com's (AMZN) moves in the pharmacy space indicate that the online retailer has finally made moves to expand PillPack. However, the initial expansion phase appears focused on offering pharmacy services to Amazon employees in Washington. In his most recent webscrape, Tanquilut came across a new prescription license in WA, two pending Rx licenses in New Mexico and Indiana, and pharmacy technician and packaging/shipping job postings all linked to PillPack's Phoenix facility. These new developments signal the beginning of Amazon's prescription expansion via PillPack, Tanquilut tells investors in a research note. If Amazon were to rollout a more extensive PillPack offering to its own employee base, Rite Aid (RAD) could be most exposed to potential script transfers with Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) the least exposed among the public drugstores, says the analyst. He still believes that the impact of Amazon's pharmacy entry will take a while to materialize for drug stores CVS Health (CVS) and Walgreens.
