    • Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) will be the number two player in non-food consumables by 2018, according to a new report from Cowen & Company.
    • The company is leveraging its powerful Prime platform to gain market share in the highly-competitive field by highlighting to consumers its advantages on pricing and delivery.
    • Amazon's gains could come at the expense of store traffic for Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT), Target (NYSE:TGT), and Walgreens (NASDAQ:WBA), notes Cowen.
    • The Amazon Effect could also impact pricing in the personal care, household, pet, and baby products sectors - a wide swath of the consumer goods industry that impacts companies such as Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG), Avon Products (NYSE:AVP), Revlon (NYSE:REV), Kimberly-Clark (NYSE:KMB), Carter's (NYSE:CRI), Colgate-Palmolive (NYSE:CL), Ulta Salon (NASDAQ:ULTA), Unilever (UN, UL), and Church & Dwight (NYSE:CHD) as they negotiate deals.

    • Deutsche Bank isn't panicky over a plan by Avon Products (NYSE:AVP) to raise capital through a PIPE (private investment in public equity) transaction.
    • The investment firm lowered its price target on Buy-rated AVP to $10 (+250% upside) due to the ongoing F/X pressure in Brazil, but sees fears over Avon's cash flow as overdone.
    • "If the raise is announced in conjunction with a significant restructuring that reduces bloated overhead costs, it should actually be well received by investors looking for the fundamental inflection that never seems to come," reads the DB note.

    • Avon Products (NYSE:AVP) is taking bids in a private investment in public equity process (also called a PIPE) which is expected to wrap up next week.
    • Cerberus Capital Management and Platinum Equity are reported to be two of the interested buyers, although the precise size of the Avon stake is uncertain.
    • Shares of AVP have come off of some trading halts to fall back down to a 2.21% gain after spiking off the original WSJ report. It's an interesting move since the stock was subject to some wild swings around a fake Avon takeover bid earlier this year.
