  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "HMS Holdings exited the first quarter on a solid note, with earnings and revenues beating the consensus mark. The company continues to gain from its core COB unit, which saw strong year-over-year growth in the quarter. Additionally, commercial and state government revenues rose in the quarter under review. A strong guidance for 2019 buoys optimism in the stock. HMS Holdings is consistently improving margins and profitability on product-yield enhancements and process improvements. On the flip side, HMS Holdings has witnessed sluggishness in its Analytical Services in the quarter. Federal revenues declined in the quarter. Cutthroat competition in the U.S. medical cost containment space is an added concern. Further, the company looks a tad expensive at the moment." (5/10/2019)

Revenue was roughly inline with our estimates and FactSet consensus, while adjusted EPS were ahead of expectations. Adjusted EPS benefited by about $0.17 in discrete tax benefits. The company also provided 2019 guidance, with revenue below our expectation and adjusted EBITDA above our prior estimate.
