Humana to Acquire Metropolitan Health Networks for $850M

Feltl and Company lowered its rating on Metropolitan Health Networks (NYSE: MDF) from Strong Buy to Hold but raised its price target to $11.25.

Feltl and Company noted, "Metropolitan Health Networks announced this morning it entered into a definitive merger agreement with Humana (HUM – not rated) to be acquired for $850 million or $11.25 per share. The companies expect this acquisition to close by the end of the first quarter in 2013. … We are increasing our price target to the acquisition price of $11.25 and lowering our rating to HOLD from STRONG BUY.
