Investors can have a reasonable expectation of consistently increasing dividend payments. The company temporarily halted annual dividend rise to prioritize debt reduction resulting from the acquisition of Aetna.

CVS revenues decreased $7.4bn, or 29%, in Q1FY23 to $18.3bn from $25.7bn in Q1FY22, reflecting an operational decrease of $6.6bn, or 26%, as well as an unfavorable impact of foreign exchange of $730mn, or 3%. The operational decrease was primarily driven by a decline in Comirnaty, partially offset by growth from Paxlovid.
