Morgan Haefner -

Anthem reaffirmed its profit guidance for 2020 as the insurer expects continued financial growth despite the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a June 9 filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. 

Anthem officials said their full-year guidance will be greater than $21 per share. The company expects to generate about 70 percent of its adjusted earnings in the first half of the year.

Anthem reported first-quarter revenues of $29.6 billion, up from $24.7 billion in the same period a year before. Anthem ended the quarter with $1.5 billion in profits, down slightly from $1.6 billion a year prior.
