    Re: Upgrade for Humana

    Remember, I said that I come to this conclusion
    as much from another HMO's point of view as HUM's.
    Yes, HUM is doing everything it can to build a strond
    business but if the right offer comes along I think it is
    in their best interest to sell. And I think it will
    be to someone who is a direct competitor in many of
    the same markets -- someone who will benefit from the
    economies of scale gained thereby.

    As to my upbeat
    name: it comes from a wonderful little Ukranian film
    from a few years back. Our hero is depressed and takes
    out a contract on himself but then changes his mind.
    Unable to reverse the contract he hires another hit man
    to kill the first. I won't give away anymore of the
    plot but lets just say he ends up being a "friend of
    the deceased". I just thought it was appropriate for
    investing in those companies that the market has taken out
    and shot.
