7 - CVS Health

The prospect of Amazon.com Inc. entering the healthcare business is beginning to cause far-reaching reverberations for a range of companies, roiling the shares of drugstore chains, drug distributors and pharmacy-benefit managers, and potentially precipitating one of the biggest corporate merger deals this year.

CVS Health Corp. made big moves in 2017 to further expand its footprint. The company fully integrated its acquisition of Omnicare and the pharmacies and clinics of Target while focusing on managing rising drug costs. Reports of a potential $68 billion deal to buy health insurer Aetna Inc began swirling in late 2017 that CVS later confirmed. The acquisition will create a healthcare behemoth with $240 billion in annual revenue across sectors including retail pharmacy, benefit management, and insurance.
