The Good

The Bad

The Ugly

Summary and Valuation Opinion CVS Health Corporation has shown resilience in a tough

market, managing to increase its revenue amidst a competitive landscape. However, the earnings miss and the broader economic challenges present concerns. The company’s P/E ratio stands at 9.7, reflecting a market that is cautious about CVS’s future growth prospects1. Given the expected earnings growth and the current macroeconomic conditions, CVS’s valuation appears to be conservative, potentially offering a margin of safety for long-term investors.

Finviz Chart

Cost increases outpaced revenues but there's underlying growth and keep in mind that CVS owns Aetna and other insurance arms so there's a push-pull that can be complex in rising cost environments (like XOM owning refiners and wells) but, over the long-term, it keeps earnings more steady than if they weren't a conglomerate.
