gandalf captzorro pokerking g.h.n.b. and the rest of you.... What can we do... nothing... at least alone. Lets hear from you and accumulate enough share votes to have a voice... combined we can contact the aetna or some of the large institutional holders and add to their influence... With where the market cap is vs the amount of cash and assets in hand, Aetna has to look attractive.. For this reason Aetna will either need to make changes immediately or risk being changed from the outside. Its easy to gripe from the sidelines, so if you are happy with that... fine. If not lets hear from you... http://messages.yahoo.com/bbs?action=m&board=7080550&tid=aet&sid=7080550&mid=284 3
I'll email firstname.lastname@example.org, and tell him I'm happy to go along. I don't have enough shares to be an influence, though. And I certainly had no influence back in March-August of '96 as an employee, when I tried to stop Compton's and Huber's buffoonery.
Stop griping here and use your energy to actually create a positive impact on the stock price. C-man and I have talked long and hard about meainingful and pragmatic ways we can make a difference. You can see, by his posts he is very familiar with the Company and has a lot of good ideas. But there is only strength in numbers and we need everyone on this board that is long to respond to my e-mail address: email@example.com so that we can pool our ideas, knowledge, and votes. Both C-man and I have talked to Carol Gentry on several occassions and I am sure there will be follow-up stories if we give something tangible to report and our banding together to do whatever is necessary to improve AET's stock price. I am in the process of contacting the fund managers mentioned in her article to enlist their input and help.
The following line should read: Both C-man and I have talked to Carol Gentry on several occasions and I am sure there will be follow-up stories if we give her something tangible to report such as the fact that we have banded together to do whatever is necessary to improve AET's stock price.
