Anthem Reports Solid End to 2021, Offers Initial Look at 2022

Health insurer Anthem, Inc., reported solid fourth-quarter results on Jan. 26, with some numbers in line with expectations and others hitting above or below expectations. The company also indicated it’s bracing for medical costs to rise above normal levels this year amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis — though perhaps not as much as in 2021.

Anthem reported $5.14 in adjusted earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, beating the consensus of $5.11. “EPS appears to be aided by better-than-expected investment income to the tune of $0.42, which grew $23% [year over year],” Jefferies analyst David Windley wrote in a Jan. 26 note to investors.
