The deal is precisely the kind of news that the health care industry has been fearing for months, as Amazon hinted that it was interested in expanding its reach to include prescription drugs, a $560 billion business. One barrier to entry for Amazon had been the bureaucratic hassle of securing pharmacy licenses in each state. But in acquiring PillPack, it is essentially leaping over that hurdle because the company is licensed to ship prescriptions in 50 states. Shares of Walgreens and Rite Aid dropped more than 9 percent, and CVS Health dropped 6.6 percent, after the … [Read more...] about Amazon to Buy Online Pharmacy PillPack, Jumping Into the Drug Business

Sprint has been in the red in the last 15 consecutive quarters having to deal with the heavy luggage of Nextel and throughout that period uncertainty and a general bearish trend prevailed. Its shares have also dipped to their lowest level in the last almost two years. But while the future is not yet clear, there are a couple of factors that could either elevate or bring the carrier and its shares down. Today’s latest scoop about a Sprint-bound iPhone is the first such factor and it’s what tipped it for us - while it’s far from certain and nowhere near official it seems that the carrier run by Dan Hesse is finally about to get the iPhone 5.
