Goldman Sachs downgraded Walgreen (NYSE: WAG) from Conviction Buy to Buy with a price target of $50.00 (from $46.00). Analyst Matthew J. Fassler said he saw less upside in the stock now that the market increasingly appreciates WAG's association with Alliance-Boots.

"We maintain a Buy rating given accelerating earnings momentum and the potential for the ABC distribution deal to drive synergies beyond our current forecast," said Fassler.
