A mid size health insurance company and it's all about cost containment. Premiums should be growing faster than costs. Have been able to react when costs have been rising. Trades around 14 X's and growing about the same pace. Had pulled back recently due to an acquisition they had done.

Doesn't know what to make on the big auto companies. If unions roll back on some of their demands at General Motors (GM-N) you could see the same thing happening at this company. The industry is under siege. They're losing shares to the Japanese all the time.

Doing a great job of reformatting their stores in what they call a 20/20 concept which is basically getting more square footage. Same store sales of 3% to 4%. Has done a good job in the financial services area. Thinks they can grow earnings 12/15% over the next 5 years.
