Interesting observation... Could be coincidence or just some speculators hoping for a good hit.

In a brief 10-minute period starting at 9:32 a.m., the stock value of the nation’s largest hospital chain, HCA Holdings Inc., jumped from $26.81 per share to $27.53 as bidders bought several hundred thousand shares before the court made its announcement just after 10 a.m.

The bidders who snatched up shares before the announcement made a gain of roughly $2 a share once the price rose again after the court officially announced its backing for the law.

The bidding and the price jump came more than 30 minutes before Chief Justice John Roberts read his unexpected decision from the bench.

At roughly 10:06 a.m., Roberts announced that the law was constitutional, providing it was reinterpreted as a tax increase.

Just speculators or inside knowledge? No observed price movement of other hospital chains in the same time period..... Hmmm.... Time to check if Pelosi is a large shareholder of HCA

The law uses government power to funnel patients — including people with new government-provided insurance policies — toward existing hospitals, including HCA’s hospitals.

In contrast to HCA, there was little trading — and little movement in the stock price — of other hospital chains before the public announcement.

The absence of movement in their other companies’ stocks suggest that a few bidders targeted HCA’s stock.

The absence of movement in other companies’ stocks also suggests that the HCA investment was not driven by software analysis of the hospital sector.

If this proves to be the case, it just further shows the staggering amount of corruption in every branch of our government. It's almost as if they are intentionally trying to provoke the American citizenry into a confrontation.

I have a hunch the judge accepted a very big bribe and also leaked the ruling to those investors or their agent..
No one else would know the information early on...

I've been wondering what drove the markets to rise so high today (277 points

Ultimately I feel like it's knowledge of stability, there's now no question that the health care bill is constitutional, no more question of whether or not it's going to stick around for a few years.

I'm pretty sure there are a number of other factors involved but that one makes me wonder.

Well, if congress did it then its all perfectly legal.

They write the laws for the rest of us and give themselves exemptions.
