    For shorts only!

    March 9, 2010, 2:11 PM ET.Tender Touch of WebMD.WebMD kicked off a tender offer for up to 5.8 million shares, or 11% of currently outstanding, at $45.80. Shares closed Monday at $43.78 and are creeping up to the tender price.

    This marks the company’s second tender offer in four months, previously paying $37.00 per share in December.

    As noted in a Barron’s Online article just 2 weeks ago, WebMD is nearly 14% short and a tender offer like this has to make those betting against a little uncomfortable.

      Prior to the recent upped tender, the recon almost equaled the intelligence issues.....I believe I am pretty close on this, and have followed the company for at least a decade.....
