Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Anthem stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Anthem’s earnings of $4.64 per share beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 0.7% and improved 9.2% year over year on higher revenues. Its shares have outperformed its industry in a year's time. Its prudent acquisitions and collaborations complement its organic growth and helps it boost Medicare Advantage growth. The company's growing top line paves the way for long-term growth. A diverse product portfolio also helped it enhance its revenues. Its strong capital position backs effective capital deployment via share buybacks and regular dividends. A strong outlook for 2019 and growing membership instills investor's confidence. However, it has been suffering from high benefit costs and selling, general and administrative expense, which continues to weigh on its bottom line. Rising level of debt is another concern." (8/19/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our Overweight rating on Anthem shares and increase our price target to $330 from $305. We recently hosted an investor trip to Anthem’s headquarters in Indianapolis with senior management. During our meetings, management stressed that it will use $3.2 billion from its PBM savings beginning in 2020 and 2021 to drive membership growth in subsequent years. Accordingly, we have increased our top-line growth assumptions in our DCF model, which drove our price target higher. Importantly, we expect membership and revenue to grow faster without sacrificing margins. We remind investors that our model had already assumed $800 million of savings in 2020 and 2021."
