HealthSpring (HS) says it will acquire privately held Bravo Health, a Medicare plan operator, for $545M to expand into the Philadelphia market. JPMorgan (JPM) and other banks will put up $400M in cash to fund the deal, which HealthSpring expects will add $0.45-0.55 to its EPS in 2011.

    Why would a company trading a 7x earnings buy a company at 14x earnings? They should be repurchasing their own stock not empire building. I'm selling my entire position today and I'm very angry about it.
