    Aetna (AET -8.1%) isn't likely done with cutting its 2009 guidance, Credit Suisse says, downgrading shares to Underperform. "We believe Aetna's reserve cushion is too thin and that it will ultimately need to boost reserves in order to account for the continued pressure on margins," firm says, predicting AET will underperform its peers.
