In the last one year, Wellcare Health’s shares have outperformed the industry. The company’s strong robust inorganic growth is impressive. Its second-quarter 2017 earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate and also grew year over year on higher revenues. The recent acquisition of Care1st Arizona is expected to further help it in growing faster. Its healthy balance sheet continues to support its operational and financial excellence. It has also been witnessing revenue growth over the last six years. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for both 2017 and 2018 has been significantly revised upward in the last seven days. However, the company faces intense competition and stringent regulation because of its geographically diverse operations. Rising level of expenses and mounting level of debt also hurt the bottom line.
