Aetna Is Star of the Show in CVS First-Quarter Financial Results

CVS Health Corp. posted robust financial results in the first quarter of this year, with revenues increasing by 11.2% to $76.8 billion. Wall Street praised the firm — particularly its Aetna health insurance division — for delivering strong results, and predicted the Caremark PBM would overcome disappointing results for the first quarter.

The integrated health care company’s quarterly adjusted operating income was $4.48 billion, increasing nearly 7% year-over-year from the first quarter of 2021.
