Guru Investment Theses on CVS Health Corp

Mario Gabelli Comments on CVS Health Corp - Feb 05, 2016

CVS Health Corp. (2.4%) (CVS – $97.77 – NYSE)(NYSE:CVS) is the leading pharmacy and pharmacy benefits manager in the country, with over $150 billion in annual revenue. The company’s recent acquisitions of institutional pharmacy Omnicare and the pharmacies inside Target stores should add $0.15 to earnings in 2016 and further CVS’s dominance across the pharmacy channel. Same store sales should improve in 2016 now that the company has annualized its decision to stop selling tobacco, and that decision has helped them win over $11 billion in net new business for its pharmacy benefits management (PBM) division.

Mario Gabelli Comments on CVS Health Corp - Oct 29, 2014

CVS Health Corp. (1.6%) (CVS - $79.59 - NYSE) operates one of the largest retail pharmacy chains in the country, and the company is poised to benefit from the expansion of insurance coverage under healthcare reform with no new taxes or regulation. CVS is expanding into the fast growing market for specialty and biotech medicines, particularly through the recently announced $2 billion acquisition of home infusion provider Coram. CVS Health recently stopped selling tobacco in its stores, but the company is performing so strongly this year that it can easily absorb the $2 billion in lost sales. The company can sustain double digit earnings growth, and management continues to return a substantial amount of cash to shareholders via a higher dividend and share repurchases.
