    AET comments on the Money & Markets newsletter:

    "Aetna was founded 11 years before the American Civil War and was one of the first in history to offer lifetime pensions (now called annuities).

    Fast forward to 2015, and we see the company's most recent quarterly report was another in a long line of solid earnings growth: Profits of $2.39 a share, well above the $1.95 that Wall Street was expecting ... revenues of $15.1 billion ... and a big jump of 120,000 new insurance customers to a total of 23.7 million.

    Heck, in the past 12 months, the health insurance industry as a whole has seen its premiums increase by 5.9%. Meanwhile, Aetna has grown its premium income by 14.2%, or nearly two and half times faster.

    And that's just the tip of the growth iceberg: Aetna has just acquired Humana. Before the acquisition, the company's revenues were roughly 40% from government sources and 60% from private. Now, after the deal, those numbers flip to 40% private and 60% government. With Obamacare kicking in, that shift could not have come at a better time.

    The clincher: Once the merger with Humana is complete, Aetna will be the largest provider of Medicare Advantage in the country"

    .....I don't know anything about these executives....were they early hires with the company that are returning?....and do you believe they will be effective in moving the company forward?.....for what it's worth, in my past work experience I dealt with MDs and they don't necessarily make good businessmen....running a business; especially one that's growing is no easy task....I've seen doctor's clinics go broke or have to merge with other clinics to stay afloat....just my .02 of course.
