Baird investigation finds Ohio, like many buyers, paying too much for drugs
In a research note titled "Major Confusion: Does This Pass Your Sniff Test?," Baird analyst Eric Coldwell details the interplay between Cardinal Health's (CAH) generic marketing company Major Pharmaceuticals and CVS Health (CVS) in Ohio. In Major's catalog is Omeprazole, a generic version of Prilosec, which is available without a subscription. CVS Caremark, which had majority share of pharmacy benefit management services in Ohio, didn't use Maximum Allowable Cost for the product, which led to the state of Ohio paying $6.74 per tablet, or 19 times the amount somebody without a subscription can buy it, Coldwell tells investors in a research note, citing his own investigation. Meanwhile, over the course of five quarters in Ohio, Major's volume market share went from less than 2% to nearly 60% while dollar market share went from 12% to 95%, adds the analyst. He asks, "How does this happen?" The state of Ohio, "like so many other buyers, feels like it is paying too much for drugs," concludes Coldwell.

Morgan Stanley says Walgreens' reimbursement pressure points to distributor risk
Morgan Stanley analyst Ricky Goldwasser said the guidance cut made by Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) is due to the same "perfect storm of industry headwinds" addressed by CVS Health (CVS) earlier in the year, including increased reimbursement pressure, lower generic deflation, lower brand inflation and declining comparable sales in the front-end of the store. Though Walgreens management suggested reimbursement headwinds should normalize in fiscal 2020, Goldwasser said he could see more downside from continued reimbursement headwinds and structural changes if new rebate rule comes into play. He also views pharmacy reimbursement pressure as a leading indicator suggesting risk to distributors' sell side margins and earnings, including for AmerisourceBergen (ABC), which Goldwasser notes is part of the WBAD purchasing consortium. Other drug distributors include McKesson (MCK) and Cardinal Health (CAH).

e.l.f. Beauty upgraded to Buy at DA Davidson on increased shelf space presence
As previously reported, DA Davidson analyst Linda Bolton Weiser upgraded e.l.f. Beauty to Buy from Hold and raised her price target to $15 from $7. The analyst cites the findings of her proprietary store checks suggesting that the company products have seen a 17% increase in shelf space at Target (TGT), overtaking Coty's (COTY) Covergirl brand, while its Q1 sales "inflected from down high-single digits" in Q4 to low-single digits. Weiser believes that her FY20 sales forecast of a 2% decline may be conservative based on these findings.

While the analyst anticipates "only minor residual impact" from supply disruptions on Q3 results, he sees the outlook for Consumer Beauty remaining muted and also points to the company's debt levels and free cash flows limiting its strategic optionality.

Sinclair Broadcast price target doubled to $90 at Benchmark after RSN 'homerun'
Benchmark analyst Daniel Kurnos doubled his price target on Sinclair Broadcast (SBGI) shares to $90 from $45 after the company's "massively accretive, transformative acquisition" of 21 Fox regional sports networks from Disney (DIS). While some questions are still unanswered, Kurnos sees several reasons that Sinclair can keep moving significantly higher, including significant cash flow optionality through the RSNs, the fact that he thinks consensus for legacy Sinclair looks conservative through 2020 and his view that shares remain inexpensive. He keeps a Buy rating on Sinclair shares, which closed yesterday with an advance of 35% to $60.48.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Sinclair Broadcast (SBGI) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley FBR with analyst Barton Crockett saying yhe company's deal to acquire 21 regional sports networks from Disney (DIS) at valuation of $10.6B "looks like a home-run". 2. ImmunoGen (IMGN) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at H.C. Wainwright with analyst Debjit Chattopadhyay seeing 40% downside risk to the stock if the FDA does not consider mirvetuximab to be a clinically meaningful addition to the armametum against ovarian cancer versus a 145% upside potential. 3. Dish (DISH) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Douglas Mitchelson saying he finds that risk/reward and potential catalysts across wireless and Pay TV are now in balance. 4. Post Holdings (POST) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Jason English stating he views the recent pullback as a buying opportunity as he thinks transient headwinds were the reason results missed investor expectations in Q2. 5. Dentsply Sirona (XRAY) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Barrington with analyst Michael Petusky saying the company's turnaround is "now on a firm, provable footing".

McDonald's downgraded to Neutral on valuation at Longbow
As previously reported, Longbow analyst Alton Stump downgraded McDonald's (MCD) to Neutral from Buy. While the company's "impressive" U.S. comp growth in Q1 increases his confidence in comps over the last three quarters of the year, he also believes the stock reflects his favorable view with shares trading near his prior price target of $200. Stump added that he believes the strong U.S. comparable sales growth likely means the company gained share from the likes of Dunkin' Brands (DNKN), Burger King (QSR) and Wendy's (WEN) in Q1.

Oppenheimer analyst Brian Bittner tells investors in a research note that he remains bullish on Wendy's ahead of the company's May 8 earnings report, saying the drivers behind his January upgrade are intact as the investment story improves in 2019 against a discounted valuation. Bittner, who maintains an Outperform rating and $20 price target, says his analysis also suggests the Street's earnings and free cash flow estimates through the end of 2020 have been set conservatively with attractive risk/reward.

Bed Bath & Beyond upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi
Citi analyst Geoff Small upgraded Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) to Neutral from Sell and raised his price target for the shares to $18 from $10 after taking over coverage of the name. Citi transferred coverage of Broadlines & Hardlines Retail names to Small. The analyst assumed coverage with Buy ratings on AutoZone (AZO), BJ's Wholesale (BJ), Home Depot (HD), Lowe's (LOW), O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) and Walmart (WMT). The U.S. consumer remains on "solid footing" amid low unemployment, rising wages, declining gas prices, manageable levels of debt, and elevated consumer confidence, Small tells investors in a research note. However, he points out that we are in the ninth year of the current economic expansion and "the possibility of a macroeconomic slowdown cannot be ignored." The analyst prefers retailers operating in "defensive sectors that are less susceptible to disruption by online competitors," namely auto parts, broadlines and home improvement retail. Small also assumed Advance Auto Parts (AAP), Best Buy (BBY), Costco (COST) and Office Depot (ODP) with Neutral ratings.
