  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Anthem shares have outperformed its industry in a year's time. The company's prudent acquisitions and collaborations complement its organic growth. Its consistently growing top line paves the way for long-term growth. A diverse product portfolio has also helped the company enhance its underwriting results. Anthem’s 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 in the company. However, the company has been suffering from high benefit costs and selling, general and administrative expense. Rising level of debt is another concern." (5/16/2019)
  • 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."
