CVS Health on Wednesday outpaced analysts’ expectations for fiscal second-quarter earnings and raised its forecast for the year, as customers returned to doctor offices and more typical shopping patterns.
Shares of the drugstore chain and health insurer were up less than 1% in premarket trading.
The company said its business has begun to normalize, as customers buy more items in the front of the store and pharmacists fill more prescriptions. It said use of health-care benefits has returned to a more typical pattern, too, as people resume medical visits and procedures.
