What are analysts saying about CVS Health Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about CVS Health Corporation stock:

  • Evercore ISI analysts commented, "While the quarter proved generally uneventful and guidance was reiterated on the surface (albeit some moving parts below ' dollar profit targets were unchanged in our view ' much of the delta related to where 4Q came out vs mid-point and lower inflation outlook), investors have reacted negatively to the lack of clarity on several key issues with respect to business model risk that in our minds is unlikely to dissipate until later in the year. We think management did an admirable job on the DIR fee issue and a reasonable job on gross to net / rebates, but the reality is that policy noise is unlikely to dissipate and the outlook for 2018 won't start to gain clarity until the summer. We think once we get initial color on the PBM selling season, a better understanding of underlying pharmacy share shifts and profit headwinds and ultimately gain a better picture of 2018 the multiple may start to see some relief. Until then CVS shares remain inexpensive and highly leveraged to tax reform and it appears as if many years of execution are being overshadowed by a tough 18 month stretch. Given how far shares have fallen and in our view strong FCF yield support we retain our Buy rating but acknowledge the path to returns from here is likely most appropriate for those with a multi-year time horizon and a 'deep value' focus." (2/9/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "CVS Health posted better-than-expected second-quarter with respected to adjusted EPS. However, revenues missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. The company’s Pharmacy Services segment continues to benefit from growth in the Specialty Pharmacy business while the Retail Pharmacy segment is gaining from increased same-store sales. We take note of the recently completed Omnicare and Target Pharmacy buyouts which, according to CVS, are strategically perfect fits. CVS Health expects to benefit with multiple opportunities for driving enterprise value from Omnicare and Target in both the near and long term. CVS Health also expects to see market share gain in its specialty pharmacy suite of services with differentiated specialty offerings providing a high level of clinical support to patients. However, the competitive landscape remains tough. The tussle for market share gain in the PBM and retail space also warrants caution." (8/3/2016)

  • Morgan Stanley analysts commented, "We are hosting a cc with CVS Health’s CFO, Dave Denton today 4/7 at 1:00pm ET to discuss strategy, the selling season, recent acquisitions, and future capital deployment opportunities." (4/7/2016)
