10:51 EDTAETHealth insurers slide after UnitedHealth results, cautious comments
Shares of a number of health insurers are falling after the largest company in the sector, UnitedHealth (UNH), reported slightly higher than expected first quarter profit but lower than expected revenue. WHAT'S NEW: UnitedHealth's first quarter earnings per share came in at $1.10, versus the consensus outlook of $1.09. The insurer reported revenue of $31.71B, compared with the consensus outlook of $31.99B. Taxes levied by the Affordable Care Act and weak funding of Medicare Advantage by the government weighed on UnitedHealth's earnings, the company stated. Also pushing down the company's earnings was "a very expensive," new Hepatitis C therapy, UnitedHealth stated on its earnings conference call. Hepatitis C treatments cost UnitedHealth hundreds of millions of dollars in the first quarter, the company stated, though it also noted that demand for the treatments should drop going forward as initial pent-up demand for them starts to decline. The company indicated that it was looking to be reimbursed by states for the money it is spending on hepatitis vaccines for Medicaid patients. Meanwhile, UnitedHealth reiterated its fiscal 2014 EPS guidance of $5.40-$5.60 and its fiscal 2014 revenue guidance of $128B-$129B. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, UnitedHealth sank 3.7% to $75.31. Other health insurers also declined, with WellPoint (WLP) dropping 4% to $91.89, Aetna (AET) falling 3.3% to $67.54, Humana (HUM) declining 2.25% to $106.35, and Health Net (HNT) sliding 1% to $31.74.
