What are Wall Street analysts saying about CIGNA stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about CIGNA stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Cigna have outperformed its industry's growth quarter to date. The company is on track to buy Express Scripts, which should raise its rank in the health insurance industry. Synergies from the acquisition should buoy the company's long-term growth potential. A robust Global Supplemental business, growing Government business, increasing membership, and strong capital position are the other positives. Strong 2018 outlook reflects business strength. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for 2018 earnings has improved in the past 60 days. However, increase in leverage, suspension of share buyback and huge execution risk related to the recent deal are the concerns. Its Medicare business is expected to grow less than the industry average. Also, the company's valuation looks stretched at the moment." (7/17/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "CI reported Q2:17 adjusted EPS of $2.91 (GAAP $3.15), compared to OPCO’s estimate of $2.46 and Street consensus of $2.45. Adjusted results exclude $0.13 of realized investment gains and $0.18 from merger-related tax benefits, offset by $0.07 of amortization expense. The beat was driven by the Healthcare segment, with the Commercial MCR of 78.7% outperforming OPCO/Street estimates by 200/160 bps. Due to the beat, the company raised FY2017 EPS guidance to $9.75-$10.05 vs. $9.35-$9.85, with all three segment outlooks growing by $15-$40M." (8/4/2017)
