I think we have three chances for positive pops over the next four months. 1) Tbursday's conference call 2) The first quarter call ( the first quarter calls have been awesome for the last 3 years) 3) The dividend decision in April. .... I think we may be surprized. Each of these events may well be preceded by "buy on the rumor sell on the news" activity but, generally speaking, I'd wager (I have wagered) that we will be hitting new 52 week highs over the next three to four months. There is always the threat of macro issues (if Europe collapses or Iran becomes a bloody mess all bets are off) but I think that politically we are in a safe cove until the conventions and I think that the Pacificare issue is slowly dying on the vine (and totally on ice until April at the earliest). I think a tryst with $60 is possible between here and the end of April. But then again I am generally wrong about these things...... Good luck everybody,,,, Steve
I took a long shot on the jan 55 calls hoping it would break out to new highs before earnings. Any chance you see a nice pop this week? Historically jan is the month it can reach new hieghts. If it can some how pop to 56 .10 becomes 1.00! Im going to need some nasty good luck. Go UNH!
