"40% off sale" based on basic Graham's number formula. New manager (CEO) focused on reasonable cost cutting and he has hospital experience (good at it, too). Should be better than last CEO. Fundamentals improving and good industry to be in no matter what the economy does. When economy is bad, people don't have as many procedures so insurers don't pay out as much. Wellpoint also wants to be heavily involved in exchanges, which may not be extremely profitable, but will definitely increase volume of customers(market share).
