    EDS outsourcing deal

    Still here. This could take a while -- asset
    plays are always a waiting game. But even if it takes 5
    yrs and they only get 15/shr it is still a 20%/yr
    gain. That would be just fine with me. Back in 93-94 I
    did the same thing with Carenetwork. Bought at 4 and
    doubled up at 8. HUM bought them out at 25. In those days
    memberships were going for $1000-1400 per in buyouts. It
    makes you wonder about the efficiency of a market that
    would let a stock trade a less than 1/6th of what
    another company in the same industry would pay for

    HMOs all rallying today (WLP came out with big
    earnings). UNH is finally back to the price that they
    originally offered the .5 shr for each HUM shr. ML has a
    price target of 75. If they get that high it sure will
    make HUM's membership look awfully cheap.
