Molina Healthcare's (MOH) Q2 Earnings: What to Expect? - Analyst Blog

Molina Healthcare, Inc. MOH is expected to report second-quarter 2015 earnings results on Jul 30, 2015. Last quarter, it posted a 12% positive earnings surprise. Let us see how things are shaping up for this announcement.

Factors Affecting the Past Quarter

The Affordable Care Act ("ACA") implementation has helped the company in enhancing memberships. This should boost premiums and service revenues, thereby contributing positively to earnings in the second quarter. The expansion in the State of Michigan is also boosting the operating capacities and hence, raising optimism for the quarterly results.

However, high medical care costs along with adverse effects of the healthcare reform are likely to weigh on financials. Moreover, losses related to delays in the enrollment and implementation of programs are headwinds.
