Trade of the Day: Aetna (AET)

by Jon Markman | December 3, 2013 9:51 am

Aetna (AET[1]) is a major provider of health insurance benefits in the United States. It was one of the best-performing stocks on the board all year until the start of Obamacare, and then it and its peers like Cigna (CI[2]) and WellPoint (WLP[3]) went on extended leave. They are all continuing to rally back now, as it looks like the new wrinkles in the Affordable Care Act snafu will benefit the HMOs.
