UnitedHealth (UNH) earnings Q1 2020

UnitedHealth, the largest U.S. health insurer, on Wednesday beat quarterly profit expectations, boosted by strength across its businesses, and maintained its 2020 outlook while it continues to assess the impact of COVID-19. Shares of the company were up 2.6% at $277.50 before the opening bell. The company, the first health insurer to report results this earnings season, said it continues to expect adjusted net earnings of $16.25 to $16.55 per share for the year, the mid-point of which is above analysts' estimate of $16.22, according to Refinitiv IBES data. The coronavirus outbreak, which caused over 20,000 deaths in the United States, has left millions of Americans jobless and triggered fears of a nation-wide economic meltdown. For the quarter ended March 31, the company reported medical loss ratio — the percentage of premiums paid out for medical services — of 81.0%, a decrease of 1% from a year earlier, primarily due to the return of the health insurance tax.
