Clover earnings preview

Clover Health is a leading company in the Medicare Advantage insurance plans to thousands of people in the United States. The firm went public through a SPAC merger that was sponsored by Chamath Palihapitiya. 

At its peak, Clover Health became one of the most popular meme stocks in the world. As a result, the firm’s stock moved to an all-time high. Like other meme stocks like AMC, Blackberry, and GameStop, it has declined sharply in the past few months. The sell-off has accelerated as investors react to the hawkish Federal Reserve.

The Clover stock price will react to the company’s upcoming quarterly earnings that are scheduled for Monday this week. Economists polled by Reuters expect that the company’s revenue rose to $787.41 million in the first quarter.
