11:31 EDTAET, UNH, CI, WLP, HUMAetna rises after topping expectations, raising guidance
Shares of healthcare insurer Aetna (AET) are advancing after its first quarter results topped analysts' consensus estimates and it raised its fiscal 2014 outlook.

Aetna is targeting year-end medical membership of more than 23M, an increase of 800,000-1M members for the year. “Aetna posted higher operating earnings, operating revenues and medical membership in the first quarter, each representing historic highs for our company...This performance is once again a testament to the strength of our diversified portfolio, continued progress in integrating the Coventry acquisition, pricing discipline and solid execution. Our strong membership growth in the quarter came from both our commercial and government businesses, and we project this momentum will continue,” said Mark Bertolini, Aetna chairman, CEO and president. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The company raised its FY14 EPS view to $6.35-$6.55 from at least $6.25, versus consensus of $6.38.
