January 19, 2010

Market Watch:

As Massachusetts voters on Tuesday decide who will fill Edward Kennedy’s U.S. Senate seat, shares of Aetna Inc. and other large insurance companies rallied on the thinking that the close race further thwarts efforts at health reform.

On Wall Street, the major stock indexes advanced, led by health-care stocks including Coventry Health Care Inc. (CVH 26.72, +1.52, +6.03%), recently up 5.6%, and Eli Lilly & Co. (LLY 37.43, +1.61, +4.50%), which advanced 5.1%.
