What are analysts saying about Anthem stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Anthem stock:
- 1. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "On Thursday, May 11, 2017, the Delaware Chancery Court ruled against Anthem and allows Cigna to terminate the merger agreement with Anthem. The ruling has no impact on our investment thesis, as we assigned a very low probability to Anthem’s ability to complete the merger." (5/11/2017)
- 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "ANTM has managed better volume growth (3.4%) than its Commercial-risk heavy member mix would have suggested. That will slow in '17. P&L-wise, Medicare now is on much better footing, but Medicaid is a mixed bag - improvement in Iowa offset by Expansion rate headwinds. We missed the catchup trade on valuation, but aren't compelled to step in here." (2/2/2017)
- 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Anthem’s earnings of $2.45 per share missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 1.6% and declined 10.3% year over year owing to higher expenses. Anthem’s wide product portfolio, divestitures, prudent capital management, modest cash position, strategic acquisitions and ACO arrangements position it for long-term growth. Anthem has recently received high Medicare Star Quality Ratings from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). However, Anthem faces increasing regulatory hurdles from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) over its proposed merger with Cigna and has been sued for the same. Though the company will challenge the case, the deal might fall apart and will lead to payment of $1.85 billion in severance charges to Cigna. Also, declining investment income, high debt levels and a weak public exchange business pose risks." (11/7/2016)
