Yes, Met is doing all they can. The gov't is the problem. I blame Obama. The Socialists/Communists want to control Insurance companies now. They see assets, dollar signs in their eyes. They have stolen the last dimes in our trust funds -- SS, Medicare, govt Pension funds and such -- and bankrupted them, now they are moving on to bigger and better things. That's my guess. It's ust a matter of time as they continue to destroy the fabric of our country. Very disturbing. This control is just the starting point. And half the Americans voted them in.
Meanwhile, PRU's dividend is more than twice ours.
Wish I could load up. Now more gov't regulation limits me to 10% of my 401K. ! I have upped my sentiment to strong buy, as you're right, Met's not going to let them push them around, if they can avoid it. Still, there is a risk the Socialists will persist.
dr ooopha, I'm with you, let's get this show on the road. I hope they consider declaring a special dividend when this is over. Wonder who's holding it up now. Have to think this is another Obama takeover attempt, but don't have the proof.
