Molina (MOH +9.2%) powers higher today after easily topping EPS estimates yesterday, but, while results were clearly strong, Deutsche's Scott Fidel wonders how far the company has gone to account for the impact of this year's intense flu session. "The one puzzling element... was that MOH only booked $5M of incremental costs for the flu relative to last year's quarter." Fidel says. This could put pressure on its Medical Loss Ratio in the coming quarter, "particularly since most of MOH's key markets were exposed to intense levels of flu related activity in either 4Q12 or 1Q13."
