Anthem, Inc. (ANTM)
Like UnitedHealth, Anthem has been affected by the primary debates, but the recent change in expectations of a single-payer healthcare system has boosted the stock price over the last quarter. Future price movements for Anthem may continue to be impacted by ongoing election year debates. Anthem’s membership base stood at nearly 41 million members as of October 2019, an increase of 2.7% over October of last year. Both revenue and earnings increased by double digits during the quarter due to membership growth and premium rate increases. The company has been consistent with returning capital

Winter 2019 Market Commentary

In the fourth quarter, the combination of a US-China trade deal, a resolution of Brexit and sharp declines in interest rates provided strong tailwinds for equities both domestic and international. A record low unemployment rate, declining energy prices and historically low borrowing costs have aided consumer spending and the service sector. Long-term interest rates, as measured by the 30-year Treasury bond, declined from 3.02% at the end of 2018 to 2.39% as of December 31, 2019. Rock bottom interest rates led to a refinancing boom which accounted for 38% of mortgage originations in 2019 (WSJ). Declining

The health insurance industry has been down on talks of Medicare-for-All in the Democratic Primary overriding the otherwise positive results from Anthem. Both Sen. Warren and Sen. Sanders have healthcare proposals that would either eliminate or severely cut down the role of private health insurance providers at an estimated cost in excess of $30 trillion. Health insurance stocks have gone down as the odds that one of these senators is elected goes up. Although it is possible, and starting to become more likely, that one of these senators is nominated as the democratic nominee they would still

Companies could be good buys depending on what happens with proposals for a single-payer system

Shares of health care insurers have suffered lately as investors are spooked by the prospect of Medicare for All, but the threat may be overblown.

Many believe it’s far from a sure thing that a national health insurance plan will be implemented soon, even after the 2020 election.

Although comprehensive Medicare for All legislation has been introduced in both chambers of Congress, the current Democratic leaders — Senator Chuck Schumer of New York and Nancy Pelosi of California, the House speaker — haven’t endorsed it. And the Trump administration wants government to have a smaller role in health care, not

The price of insulin has doubled since 2012, but manufacturers and pharmacy benefit managers don’t seem to be benefiting. Insurance companies are the ones bringing home the bacon

Diabetes sufferers are having a hard time surviving these days. The cost of insulin in the United States has doubled since 2012, up an astonishing 1,000% since 2000, and there is no consensus as to why this is happening. Without insulin, diabetes patients will die, and many simply cannot afford to keep living. So what is responsible for the price explosion and how can it be stopped?

The finger-pointing rages between insulin manufacturers and pharmacy benefit managers, but the truth may be that neither of them are responsible. Let’s take a look and see why.
