Doubts grow about Centene sale to Humana
Speculation that Centene will abort its merger with WellCare Health Plans and submit to a takeover by Humana may be subsiding among big institutional investors who remain supportive of the deal. Reports last week that a small shareholder, Third Point LLC, wants Centene "to consider selling itself" before buying WellCare aren't going to be enough to change Centene management's mind. Centene and WellCare last week scheduled a June 24 vote on the merger and say they aren't backing away from the deal.
