bit of news I'll post it for you. Source CNBC. AET met with analyst and fund managers today to discuss the deteriorating stock holder value. AET has promise to bring the bacon home for the stockholders by concentrating on the bottom line while working to reduce expenses and without affecting the quality of their products. In addition they're going to work on the restoration of the AET NAME TO IT'S FORMER ELEVATED INDUSTRY STATURE.
"Aetna Pressured to Cure Financial Ills." And Aetna spokeswoman Joyce Oberdorf was qouted as saying "We fully realize that action is necessary." The stockholders have been heard!!!! It is refreshing that she made such a no ifs-ands-or buts statement. I inferred that Aetna has finally gotten the message from stockholders. Really good to know that some major stockholders are speaking up. So, the ball is in the BOD's court. Here's hoping that some SWIFT, BOLD AND RIGHT action is about to be taken. I don't believe the BOD can afford to fumble this time! So I await the news that has to come. Just my opinion.
