    The FDA closes down 1.6K fake pharmacies operating on the Internet including at least a couple that were posing as the online presence of Walgreen (WAG -0.2%) and CVS Caremark (CVS -0.1%). A concerted crackdown on counterfeit drug sales is presumed to be positive for drugstore operators Walgreen, Rite Aid (RAD +1.6%), and CVS Caremark although it's tricky for analysts to put a number to the impact.

    Retail watch: Walgreen's (WAG -7%) FQ3 earnings report may have tipped off a disturbing industry trend, according to analysts. Front-end sales dropped 3.9% during the quarter as the pattern of soft traffic for the drugstore sector (RAD, CVS) continues. Though the dollar store group (DLTR, DG, FDO) has been a competitive threat for items such as toiletries and greeting cards, it's the grocery sector (SWY, KR, SVU) which may taken the bigger slice of the consumables pie.

    More on ICSC Retail Sales: The retail sector put in a mixed week with department stores, electronics store chains (RSH, BBY), and drug stores (CVS, WAG, RAD) strong for the period, but sales at dollar stores (DG, DLTR, FIVE, FDO) and wholesale clubs (COST, PSMT) notably weak. After last week's drop in sales cut into forward progress, the year-over-year gain in retail chain store sales stands 2.5% higher after threatening a 3% pace earlier in the year.

    Accenture thinks the number of retail health clinics opening up in store settings like drugstores will double by the end of 2015. Though medical professionals warn about fragmented healthcare, the ease of service and lower costs of the care clinics could keep demand high. It's a trend to watch for CVS Caremark (CVS), Walgreen (WAG), Target (TGT), and Wal-Mart (WMT) as the retailers look to take advantage of expanded health insurance coverage in the U.S.

    More on ICSC Chain Store Sales: A broad drop in retail demand was attributed in part to torrential rain on the East Coast. The biggest week-over-week declines were in the categories of drug stores (RAD, CVS, WAG) and office supply stores (SPLS, OMX, ODP). Compared to last year, chain store sales were 2.2% higher.

    Pfizer (PFE) plans to start selling Viagra online, according to an AP report. The initiative could serve as a test run by Big Pharma over disrupting its current model to look at online distribution for treatments viewed as more embarrassing to buy in person. Drugstore operators (CVS, WAG, RAD) will be watching the development very carefully. PFE -0.1% premarket.

    A combined read of Redbook and ICSCS-Goldman's data on chain store sales indicates the late start to the spring season could take its toll on apparel sellers. Despite the choppy start to Q2, chain-store sales are still heading for a 2%-3% gain during the month compared to last year. Possible April winners: Drugstores [Walgreen (WAG), Rite Aid (RAD), CVS Caremark (CVS)] and wholesale clubs [Costco (COST), PriceSmart (PSMT), BJ's Wholesale].

    With their healthcare costs ballooning, many companies have started to penalize fat employees with regards to healthcare coverage, raising all sorts of legal, privacy and discrimination questions. Michelin North America, for example, plans to cut healthcare credits for staff who fail to meet requirement for waistline and other metrics, and don't sign up to health programs. Other companies making similar moves include Mohawk (MHK), CVS and Honeywell (HON).
