  • Hertz remains focused on executing its operating initiatives
    Hertz Global Holdings Inc. issued the following statement. "The Hertz board and leadership team value the views of all Hertz shareholders and welcome a constructive dialogue with them. All of us at Hertz are focused on addressing the company's recent challenges. While it will take time to complete the accounting review, we are making progress. We are in the process of implementing new procedures and controls, and we have made a number of important additions to the accounting and finance teams over the past few months. We remain focused on the business and executing our operating initiatives. We have a good handle on the nature and scope of the issues in the business and are executing plans to resolve them. Hertz also benefits from a solid foundation and clearly defined strategic priorities, including the planned separation of the company's equipment rental business into a separate, publicly traded company, which is advancing; the integration of Dollar Thrifty; expanding Hertz's off-airport footprint; and building on the company's success with Donlen leasing. As we address our challenges, we are confident that execution on these priorities, as well as the company's $1B share repurchase program, will drive enhanced performance and shareholder value. We look forward to continuing our dialogue with all Hertz shareholders as we execute on these plans."

    He bought 17.50 options for 2016 and sold puts for the same time period.

    Double Bullish move that offsets the call erosion using the puts erosion from the puts he sold.

    Smart move, of course.

  • Hertz quotes this evening in New York Times:

    “As we address our challenges, we are confident that execution on these priorities, as well as the company’s $1 billion share repurchase program, will drive enhanced performance and shareholder value,” the company added.

    Reports of Mr. Icahn’s interest in Hertz had circulated in the media this year. In late 2013, Hertz said it had adopted a one-year shareholder rights plan, known as a poison pill, to prevent an investor from gaining control of the board. The company cited “unusual and substantial activity” in its shares.

    A few months later, in March, Hertz said it would spin off its equipment rental business.

    Mr. Icahn, who said Hertz stock was “undervalued,” joins a number of other prominent investors with stakes in the company. Among them are Jana Partners and Third Point, two activist hedge funds.

    DIVIDEND INCREASE OVER 20%

    by jeremysikessr 18 hours ago

    Management looking out for shareholders. That is a good sign in my book. Give me an example where dividend increase announcement on the stock after a near term down trend and the stock did not have a near term up trend over the next week.

    This is strong and obviously a great way to battle shorts. Like a stock buyback, it is a strong signal from management to shareholders that everything is going to be alright in the near term.

    GOOD GOOD GOOD

    Bulls will continue to drift this up once the dividend gets more press. Right now the media just digesting the earnings and the professional investors know that strong dividend is a signal from the new CEO.

    BULL RUN!

    Target’s digital sales, including flexible fulfillment, grew more than 30 percent in the second quarter, approximately double the industry growth rate.

    "While results from the quarter didn’t meet our expectations, we are seeing some early signs of progress as we work to improve results in the U.S. and Canada,” said John Mulligan, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Target Corporation.

    “In the U.S., traffic trends continue to recover and monthly sales are improving, with July comparable sales up more than 1 percent. Better U.S. sales have continued into August, driven by early back-to-school results. In Canada, the team is making important changes to operations and the merchandise assortment with a focus on delivering improved results by this holiday season.”

    “Target is an extraordinary company. I’m excited to join the team as we work to drive U.S. traffic and sales, improve Canadian operations and accelerate Target’s digital transformation,” said Brian Cornell, chairman and chief executive officer of Target Corporation. “In the coming weeks and months I will be focused on listening and learning from Target team members in the U.S. and Canada, and working with the leadership team to develop guest-focused, strategic plans to position Target for long-run success.”

    This time last year TGT was around $68

    LLiad offer presents a faster deal (est $36.20) value and more international strategic growth opportunities.

    Sprint presents a higher premium (est $40) with stronger US partners and muscle to compete quickly stateside, but has serious regulator hurdles of antitrust from regulators

    Either is a win, but this shows revised offers or new suitors could likely follow very, very, soon
