More on CEOs – sometimes faces alone tell the story

Here’s an interesting WSJ article on CEOs shaking up health care [insurance].

It’s about two CEOs who are pursuing giant mergers with other health insurance companies, which, if successful, will significantly reduce what competition there is left in the industry.

Of course, the ACA has already done a good job of reducing competition, since insurance companies are tightly bound by thousands of pages of ACA and other federal regulations.

Highly recommend that you read the article if you are investing in this industry. The WSJ does a pretty good job at this major, round-up style stories. The two CEOs head up Aetna and Anthem, the two health insurance companies proposing two separate mergers..

But what we want you to look at now, is the photo accompanying the story (click on the story’s photo and it will appear almost full screen size) and reprinted above at left. What do the faces, hair cuts and color, and clothing tell you about these men?

Do you agree with the WSJ story’s portrait of them?
