    another theory

    Remember these words from the WSJ
    editorial:

    "With the other RICO suits in the mill, the trial
    lawyers are doing their best to use the court of public
    opinion and the threat of complete financial meltdown to
    get the HMOs to settle. Since October, trial lawyers
    have sought to create a market selloff of managed care
    stocks in order to force out-of-court
    settlements."

    "Mr. Scruggs has been on the front lines of the
    stratagem--cozying up to analysts at Morgan Stanley and
    Prudential"

    A theory:

    The recent breakout in HUM stock
    must be a real blow to the agenda of these lawyers.
    The timing of this article smells of intent and not
    unbiased analysis. Did Scruggs and friends have this
    article planted? Are they shorting HUM aiming to cull and
    kill the weak?

    I am not normally a paranoid
    person but when I read the above in the WSJ it makes me
    wonder???
