08:47 EDTCNCCentene weakness creates buying opportunity, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital believes that Centene's (CNC) earnings can increase 24% year-over-year in the near-term, driven by predictable levels of medical cost and continued membership growth. Over the longer term, the firm thinks that the company's acquisition of HealthNet (HNT), large addressable markets, cost synergies and improved positioning in California leave it well-positioned to increase its earnings.
