Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.
What: Shares of health insurer MedcoHealth Solutions
So what: MedcoHealth lost a big pharmacy benefit contract with Blue Cross Blue Shield Association to CVS Caremark
Now what: This is obviously a big blow for MedcoHealth, but the news hasn't been the boost you might expect for CVS Caremark. CVS' stock is only up 2% on the big win, so it appears investors are focusing on the negative news for MedcoHealth today. I wouldn't jump into MedcoHealth on this dip, but I will take a second look at CVS because the stock was only trading at a 12.4 forward multiple before this big contract is factored into expectations.
