AmerisourceBergen's stock surges toward 5-year high after profit and revenue beats, raised outlook
Shares of AmerisourceBergen Corp. surged 4.8% toward a 5-year high in premarket trading Wednesday, as the pharmaceutical products supplier reported fiscal third-quarter earnings that beat expectations and raised its full-year outlook. Net income for the quarter to June 30 fell to $289.4 million, or $1.41 a share, from $302.0 million, or $1.43 a share, in the year-ago period. Excluding non-recurring items, adjusted earnings per share came to $1.85, above the FactSet consensus of $1.58. Revenue rose 0.3% to $45.37 billion, beating the FactSet consensus of $44.64 billion, as pharmaceutical distribution services revenue rose 0.1% to $43.6 billion and other revenue grew 4.4% to $1.8 billion, boosted by growth in its ABCS and World Courier businesses. For fiscal 2020, the company raised its adjusted EPS guidance range to $7.80 to $7.95 from $7.35 to $7.65. Revenue is now expected to grow in the mid-single digit percentage range, compared with previous guidance of low- to mid-single digit growth. The FactSet revenue consensus of $187.5 billion implies 4.4% growth. The stock has soared 23.2% year to date through Tuesday, while the S&P 500 has gained 2.3%.
