Someone knows something... the rest of us will find out in a day or two.


Cigna is health insurance.

Abbot is health care/ pharmecuticals.

Textron is Aerospace.

Express scripts is pharmaceutical.

CSX is rail.

Progressive is Car insurance.

Paccar is a manufacturer of commercial vehicles.

United airlines is well... airlines.


So, basically... transportation, health care, pharmaceuticals, and insurance. A Venn diagram of these industries would reveal a lot.


Perhaps new transportation safety regulations are about to be released...

Looks more like a single, large portfolio changing hands.

edit: nope, not unless its a really big portfolio. 90 mins of unusual is unusual, isn't it?

edit 2: shorts got smashed. But why is the buyer giving such a good price for such a large transaction? Sovereign I don't really want to think about - but that's about the size, right? - Pivot, does the strength metric give me an idea of value, i.e. narrow down the who?
