Something is finally happening
Something must be happening with the investment banker hired back in april, mgt in earnings call said by end of JUNE they would be announcing results. I'm thinking they are negotiating a sale to CF or other nitrogen producer.
insurance is consolidating, highly doubt the DOJ will object to HUM merger! They are too busy ok'ing all these other huge mergers.....hard to object to one that makes total sense!
just ask Normura as they said deal really really close today. Aetna is all american, I'm sure they will want to coordinate this buyout over the next 5 days with the 4th of july fireworks!
lol, that sounds like grasping for straws by shorts!
Aetna is running out of time before United Healthcare jumps in with bid for Aetna and Cigna makes a defensive high bid for HUM to ward off Anthem.....fireworks about ready to start!
ring ring, ah SEC.......
will sell itself to Aetna Inc

Leerink's Ana Gupte offered a broad view of the apparently pending wave of insurance sector mergers following reports that Humana and Aetna are close to a deal.

Price by various analyst is all over the board. If Aetna bids too low on initial they risk that CI or UNH come in with a bid much higher and walk away with HUM. 240 + is the number that most feel we will see.

Govt. does want these mergers, will be a step closer to national healthcare!
They will approve two mergers so whoever does it the quickest will get approved.
at that level minimum would be 240.00 a share
