CVS/Aetna 1Q Results Receive Wall Street Stamp of Approval

CVS Health Corp. impressed Wall Street analysts with strong first-quarter 2021 financial results, which were largely driven by the performance of its PBM and health benefits segments. Evercore ISI analysts, for example, gushed that the diversified health care giant’s results were “exciting” because they provided “some glimmers of the bull thesis playing out.”

“All three segments rowed in unison and put up better than expected results” despite facing challenges in the retail segment, a weak cough/cold/flu season, and a “re-ramping of health care utilization,” the equities analysts wrote in a May 4 note to investors.
