NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Health insurers sang Thursday after some promising words from the U.S. Supreme Court about the fate of Obamacare.
Shares of UnitedHealth Group (UNH), Aetna (AET), Cigna (CI), Coventry (CVH), HealthNet (HNT) and Humana (HUM) all rose more than 3% a day after as the Supreme Court justices' rhetoric seemed to imply that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act would either be upheld or rejected as a whole.
