UnitedHealth (UNH, $261.81) beats Q2 earnings expectations and raised full-year profit outlook

UnitedHealth Group's earnings for the three months ending in June came in higher than expected, and the company also boosted its full-year profit guidance. However, the company cautioned about a possible miss on 2019 revenue forecasts.

The healthcare company reported adjusted earnings of $3.60 per share for the quarter, which is 15 cents ahead of the Street consensus forecast.  The earnings per share figure also reflects a +14.6% increase from the same period last year.

Total revenues of the company rose +8% to $60.6 billion, largely in-line with analysts' estimates.

Looking ahead, UnitedHealth expects its full-year net adjusted net earnings to be in the range of $14.70 to $14.90 per share, which is a small upgrade to the company's prior expectation.

However, CFO John Rex told investors that 2019 revenues would be "at or just slightly below" the forecast range of $243 billion to $245 billion.
