07:16 EDTAETAnthem should be bought after Cigna offer, says Stifel
After Anthem, (ANTM) offered to buy Cigna (CI) and the latter company rejected the bid, Stifel estimates that the deal would have been 10% accretive for Anthem in the first year and 20% accretive in the second year. The firm thinks that accretion from the deal will probably be higher than expected. It also recommends buying Aetna (AET) as it believes that the Anthem offer suggests that Aetna will benefit more than expected from its own deal. The firm is cautious on Humana (HUM), saying that it may lose two potential buyers in Anthem and Cigna, while Humana may retreat if Aetna does not acquire the company quickly.
