Pharmaceutical concern CVS Health Corp (NYSE:CVS) will enter the earnings confessional before the open tomorrow. The mean analyst earnings estimate is $2.13 per share, with revenue expected to rise to $88.25 billion year on year for the third quarter. 

Looking back at CVS Health's last eight quarterly reports, the company's shares tend to move higher after earnings. Over the last two years, all but two post-earnings sessions finished positive. The security averaged a 4.4% swing, regardless of direction, the day after reporting results, and the options pits are pricing in a nearly 8.4% move this time around.

Ahead of the event, CVS Health stock was last seen 0.6% higher at $68.44, though it's struggled for most of the year on the charts, down 26.4% in 2023. A mid-August bear gap sent CVS to its lowest level since November 2020, just above the $64.50 mark. The equity pulled sharply back last week as well, though the $66 level stepped up to stymie the losses.

In the options pits, CVS sports 50-day put/call volume ratio of 1.17 at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX). This ratio sits higher than 92% of all other readings from the past 12 months, suggesting a much healthier appetite for puts over the last 10 weeks.
