    HLTH am I stupid

    Remember, HLTH is no longer WEB-MD. It's now just a software company. WEB-MD is separate, symbol WBMD.

      • HLTH (Emdeon) is offering to buy back their own shares -- the HLTH shares.

        WBMD (Web-MD) is not offering to do anything.

        Emdeon spun off Web-MD. Their current stock buy-back plan (for HLTH shares) is trying to bolster their image by appearing to show confidence in the company even though it no longer contains the 'notability' associated with WEB-MD. It's a very shrewd way to make the uninformed investor think they will be bolstering the position of WEB-MD which is highly visible, when in fact they are only bolstering themselves, trying to emerge from the obscurity of their remaining software company.

    • I moved too soon after the reopen. My nerves couldn't take it, sold a bit too soon before it turned red on me again. All in all I wasted an intraday trade on nothing. Better than a poke in the eye with a poinTED stick.

      Sgt.:
      Look, look. All right, smarty-pants. You two, you two, come at me then with raspberries. Come on, both of you, whole basket each.

      Palin:
      No guns.

      Sgt.:
      No.

      Palin:
      No 16-ton weights.

      Sgt.:
      No.

      Idle:
      No pointed sticks.

      Sgt.:
      Shut up.

      Palin:
      No rocks up in the ceiling.

      Sgt.:
      No.

      Palin:
      And you won't kill us.

      Sgt.:
      I won't.

      Palin:
      Promise.

      Sgt.:
      I promise I won't kill you. Now. Are you going to attack me?

      Palin and Idle:
      Oh, all right.

      Sgt.:
      Right, now don't rush me this time. Stalk me. Do it properly. Stalk me. I'll turn me back. Stalk up behind me, close behind me, then in with the redcurrants! Right? O.K. start moving. Now the first thing to do when you're being stalked by an ugly mob with redcurrants is to - release the tiger!

      (He does so. Growls. Screams.)

      Sgt.:
      The great advantage of the tiger in unarmed combat is that he eats not only the fruit-laden foe but also the redcurrants. Tigers however do not relish the peach. The peach assailant should be attacked with a crocodile. Right, now, the rest of you, where are you? I know you're hiding somewhere with your damsons and prunes. Well I'm ready for you. I've wired meself up to 200 tons of gelignite, and if any one of you so much as makes a move we'll all go up together! Right, right. I warned you. That's it...

      (Explosion.)
