It's unclear whether this stock is a definite buy or a definite sell and it may turn out to be neither.
The individual mandate may not prove to be a game-changing factor because (1) individual insurance is only about 5%-7% of the market is mandated (2) so far, the large majority of individual enrollments have come into MEdicaid i.e., welfare, not insurance, (3) who knows how many young people will volunteer to be ripped off rather than pay the fine? and (4) the feds intend to kill the individual market anyway.
On the other hand, fears of insurance companies disappearing seem way overblown - because the feds will always need a massive private sector to administer the monstrosities they create.
Really? Mandated insurance is a pretty decent thing ...just look at Progressive after car insurance was mandated. Aetna is conservatively managed and trades quite defensively compared to peers. The dividend is a plus also and has been increasing over the years. Cannot be a sell here. If so, please indicate WHERE you would put the proceeds?
Unless you are overweight in this no reason to sell.
