On July 2, 2015, $HUM entered into a merger agreement with Aetna Inc. under which $HUM will merge with, and become a wholly owned subsidiary of Aetna. The total transaction was estimated at approx. $37Bil including the assumption of $HUM's debt, and the merger is currently expected to close in 2Q16.
$MCD stock rose more than 2% after it posted better than expected 3Q16 results, driven by global same-store sales growth. Meanwhile, earnings and revenue were lower than last year, hurt by refranchising efforts.
$RAI has received a $47 billion take over offer from British tobacco giant British American Tobacco! This is huge!
No better outlook on $MSFT. Even if the results beat a bit, the stock may move 4 to 6% higher, but won't go above $60.
