Amazon Could Devastate Walgreens and Rite Aid by Getting Into Pharmacy Business
Amazon could have a huge influence on the pharmacy space.

"Alexa, order me my Lipitor" are five words that could prove financially devastating to pharmacies such as Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) , CVS Health (CVS) and Rite Aid (RAD) . 

With Wall Street waiting on pins and needles to see how Amazon (AMZN) will enter the healthcare space via a tie-up with Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) (BRK.B) and JP Morgan Chase (JPM) , there is no denying a move into the pharmacy space could serve up big-time disruption. 

"An easy priority for Amazon will be to improve the overall consumer experience in shopping for drugs online," said Evercore ISI's analyst Ross Muken in a major drill down Monday into Amazon's possible healthcare initiatives. "In our opinion, some aspirations of those who think Amazon could truly disrupt the industry seem too far-fetched while some are certainly imaginable."
