Centene Corporation Shares Up 6 percent on Raised Guidance


Centene Corporation (NYSE:CNC) shares rose nearly 6% on Tuesday following its Investor Day, with the company raising its 2022 guidance by $0.15/share to $5.55- $5.70 due primarily to Marketplace outperformance and the benefit from the PHE delay.
Furthermore, the company also maintained its long-term targets, including 2023 EPS, in the “low $6’s” and 2024 EPS/net margins of $7.50-$7.75/3.3%.
Management also expects 64% of full-year EPS in the first half of the year, which implies Q2/22 EPS of approximately $1.76, well above Street’s prior estimate of $1.47.
Analysts at Oppenheimer adjusted their 2022/2023/2024 EPS estimates to $5.65/ $6.32/$7.70 from $5.48/$6.36/$7.79. Overall, while there are a number of moving parts affecting the business, the analysts believe the company remains on track with its prior targets.
