Heavy option volume in CVS with calls leading puts 2:1

Heavy option volume in CVS with calls leading puts 2:1. Shares down $1.07, or 1.6%, to $64.48 at midday with 12K contracts trading and the largest trade printing on the PHLX where a customer paid 70c for the May 62.5 put/65 call collar (bought calls) and sold 1K May 72.5 calls for $1.55. 72.5 calls are opening, while the collar may be closing an existing position. If so the trader is exchanging a relatively tight downside long put/short call hedge for a short-call written 12% above spot. Shares are down nearly $14 since November.

Outperform
CVS Health assumed with an Outperform at Leerink
Leerink analyst Ana Gupte assumed coverage of CVS Health (CVS) with an Outperform rating and $100 price target. The analyst views the recently raised synergy guidance as having upside with earlier pull-through in 2019 despite the headwind from divestiture of Aetna (AET) Part D lives. Pricing and underwriting remain firm in 2019 based on her MEDACorp fully insured employer broker survey and she is comfortable on stable Commercial margins for the Aetna book. Further, Gupte sees the PBM business as being oversold as it is synergistically integrated with Aetna's MCO book over time into a full-service captive offering. Retail headwinds from e-commerce look largely priced into consensus estimates while multiples have compressed on fears of Amazon's (AMZN) entry into pharmacy, she contends.

Goldman downgrades Walgreens to Sell with $68 target, sees downside in 2019
Goldman Sachs analyst Robert Jones downgraded Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) to Sell from Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $68 from $73. The analyst says he struggles to make a "compelling fundamental case" for the Americas Healthcare Services Supply Chain heading into 2019 as "issues facing core growth drivers do not seem to be abating." Jones sees limited "core" growth for the large-cap names amid persisting sales and margin pressures and as drug pricing remains a regulatory focus. He downgrades Walgreens to Sell saying challenges in its retail pharmacy business "have intensified, forcing the company to search for other avenues of growth." Jones also keeps a Neutral rating on CVS Health (CVS) and Sell rating on Rite Aid (RAD).

Overweight
Barclays starts CVS Health at Overweight after 'transformational' merger
Barclays analyst Steve Valiquette initiated coverage CVS Health with an Overweight rating and $91 price target. The analyst views the company's acquisition of Aetna as "well-timed" and "transformational." The good news for CVS is that Aetna has substantial leverage to the organic growth of the Medicare Advantage market, Valiquette tells investors in a research note. He projects 15% Medicare Advantage membership for Aetna in both 2019 and 2020. Further, for the combined company, Valiquette believes the $750M-plus in projected synergies by year two "should be more than achievable." The 2019 guidance in February "will be a clearing event for the stock," says the analyst.
