Jellen made her comments already and Twitter’s earnings proved her wrong.
However, Investors will always find something to worry about…

normally i agree with your eanings comments,but the issue this time is how well the mkt digests yeller and the fed a cpl of days earlier.
Your statement concerning a short squeeze is not supported by facts:
From July 15, 2013, the earliest short position I could get, that position increased from
2,563,302 shares to the recent number of 7,280,003
During the same period the share price increased from $32.21 to today’s number.
The short squeeze is still ahead of us.
To compare WBMD to a little copy like EVDY, an outfit that still has to make a profit, is just too silly for words.
Hi Volume as a result of a short squeeze. When a stock rockets up such a high % with no news and a huge short float even a blind man can see the reason. WBMD has a history or poor management, entrenched with an arrogance that most ad buyers found distasteful. Their arrogance is the sole reason a company like EVDY even exists - they are just the WebMD alternative.
Earnings always decide where any stock is going.
As for the past, this stock moved up on high volume, and came down in recent days on very low volume, as everybody is waiting for the earnings.
After the disaster three years ago, the attitude of Wall Street towards Marty and this stock is still: Show us!
I think he will.
If they have won the new business the stock remains in the low $50's - because it is already very expensive. If they didnt win the new business, the stock goes back to the high $30's, where it would be more fairly valued. On no news, only a short squeeze on low volume drove up the stock. Earnings decide where it goes from there.

Your guidance for the second half of 2014 seems to be a bit conservative. What are the factors that could drive operations to slow?
David Schlanger - Chief Executive Officer
Well, first, I would say that we’re really encouraged by the dialogue we’re having with our customers and how our customers view us and the opportunities on WebMD. At this point in the year, it’s too early to gauge the exact timing of certain incremental business we expect to bring on and whether that business is really going to impact the second half of 2014 or early 2015.
It posted today at 10:21am along with the strong buy rating. I also thought that it was odd that the company did not announce it directly. I spoke with a financial adviser who thought that Conceptis was purchased last year by the Bayer Corp.
I'm a bit surprised about your information today, as this happend nine years ago:
"As of December 2, 2005, Conceptis Technologies, Inc. was acquired by WebMD Health Corp"
WebMD announced today that it has signed an agreement to acquire Conceptis Technologies Inc., a Montreal-based provider of online and offline medical education and promotion aimed at physicians and other healthcare professionals.
WebMD is well positioned to further its lead and penetration in this high value segment of medical marketing.
This information was posted by Zacks along with a strong buy recommendation on WebMD.
I have not very well swing trading WBMD up and down, up and down. But the difference between us, besides age, is that only one of us understands WBMD, its business, its competitors, etc. But please, more 500 word posts on the world of WBMD circa 2020....
Thanks for the advice! However, Money talks, and I'm making it! Just glad I didn't follow your advice on shorting WebMD. With all your youthful knowledge you just can't ring the register.
I love your tactics of distraction. You say something that makes no sense, and then instead of backing it up by answering the question you choose to distract by calling names.
Look, I get it. You are an old dude who only understand the macro trend of healthcare benefitting from technology. Everyone understands that trend. But until you understand WBMD, and more importantly any of the potential "acquirers" that you mention I think the best you can do is stay quiet and continue to thank the heavens that this stock, on no news or fundamental changes to its business model, has run from $22 to $50. Leave the real thinking to others who understand it, and at a minimum can articulate it.
Oh, and for the record - GOOG does not own, nor has it ever owned, nor will it ever own content. For many, many, obvious reasons.
First step in the process of integration is to remove those employees that sound off as you do! The disturbed ones! The obstacles to orderly functionality!
Wow - you have no idea how Google works, do you? How would WebMD be "easily integrated into Google"?
I think 100% of your never ending blather is based on nonsense.
Who cares what I am saying? This is a message board. Regardless, when asked to make a case for the stock being fairly valued at $50 you have nothing to say.....
