Let's see what the real deal is with the Pru acquisition. Someone commented he's had a distinguished career and he probably has. But please explain to me how Huber and the crack BOD performed due diligence in about 2 days on an acquisition where they spent $1 billion of the shareholder's money?
While AET has increased market share by the Pru acquisition, it will not be that easy to hold on to all those Pru lives. Big customers like to offer employees choice in their medical plans- in many cases that choice was probably Pru and AET. Do you think that same employer is not going to bring in another competitor now that Pru and Aet are one and the same?
Good luck to in all investments but I would be wary of AET right now IMO.
