I don't believe time will be an issue here. Either Aetna discards what the regulators want, or the deal is off. This should occur soon. Either way.
At the moment, Humana stock is selling below its price just before the Aetna Humana merger was announced. Since the merger is still intact, this price affords an investor a price that hasn't been available since the merger news. If Humana was a bargain then, it's an even better bargain now, with or without a merger.
ezalldee: now a lawsuit is being filed against STARZ for agreeing to sell STARZ to LGF for a lowball dollar amount. If LGF was getting such a bargain, LGF stock shouldn't have tumbled after announcing it was buying STARZ. This whole episode is crazy. Maybe LGF could make a movie about it.
ezalldee: You said "much bigger deal". What would this deal consist of? And might it occur within a reasonable time frame?
bananas: how do you feel this will ultimately play out? I'd like to hear your explanation of how this will eventually be a positive to LGF's shareholders. I'm up for anything positive at this juncture. Thanks in advance.
Yahoo Finance has estimated this quarters (June) earnings will decline from last years 2.62 to 1.59 this year. With oil prices down considerably from last year, how is this possible?
The movies LGF has on tap over the next four months are a couple of cuts above what has preceded them. View the trailers at LGF's website. I was impressed. I think LGF has turned the corner, and the weak winter offerings we've witnessed are now in the distant past.
The ex spinoff date was May 2, I believe. The shares should be in brokerage accounts. The new stock started trading on May 16.
I know that WRK didn't want to keep it. I wish they had just sold it rather than spinning it off. Probably most investors would agree.
Yahoo Finance has IP's second quarter earnings dropping from 97 cents to 84 cents. Is this based on a one time charge, or is business trailing off this quarter?
FE is down considerably this morning on news that the Feds want to review a decision( at the state level )that was favorable to FE a short while ago.. Huge overreaction by the markets to this. Buying opportunity.
