11:32 EDTWMTAnalyst sees Amazon becoming #2 player in $425B consumables market
Amazon (AMZN) will advance to the number two position in the $425B U.S. consumables market, excluding food and beverages, by 2018, research firm Cowen predicted in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: Amazon's "multi platform approach around Prime" is enabling it to gain share in the U.S. market for goods including personal care, household, pet and baby products, Cowen analyst John Blackledge stated. Specifically, the e-commerce giant is effectively using its Amazon Prime, Amazon Prime Now, Amazon Pantry and Amazon Fresh offerings to sell consumables and it has significantly increased the number of fulfillment centers it operates, lowering its delivery times, according to Blackledge. The company's delivery times are now "well ahead of (the) competition," the analyst reported. The e-commerce giant's strategy in the consumables market appears to be working, as Cowen's proprietary data indicates that the company is gaining share in the category, Blackledge wrote. Additionally, Amazon is beginning to attract more customers from Wal-Mart (WMT) and Target (TGT), he believes. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Amazon slipped 0.4% to $518.70.

Cleveland Research analysts Rob Eich and Rob Stuyck said the firm's work indicates that stepdown reimbursement rates will be more manageable for drug store operators and that generic inflation will be less of a headwind for the group in FY16. However, Direct and Indirect Remuneration clauses will still be a source of margin pressure, the firm said, noting that several payers will be introducing a DIR next year.
