    From TheStreet:

    WebMD Health Corp. provides health information services to consumers, physicians and other healthcare professionals, employers, and health plans through its public and private online portals, mobile platforms, and health-focused publications in the U.S. This stock closed up 3.6% at $49.26 in Monday's trading session.
    Monday's Volume: 938,000
    Three-Month Average Volume: 561,522
    Volume % Change: 54%
    From a technical perspective, WBMD ripped sharply higher here back above its 50-day moving average of $48.92 with above-average volume. This strong move through WBMD's 50-day on Monday is quickly pushing this stock within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if WBMD manages to take out some key near-term overhead resistance levels at $50 to $50.96 with high volume.
    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in WBMD as long as it's trending above Monday's intraday low of $47.87 or above more near-term support at $46.77 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 561,522 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then WBMD will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $52.27 to its 52-week high at $53.30. Any high-volume move above those levels will then give WBMD a chance to challenge $55 to $60.

    …and of course one could say they did it as a service to us the people: The more shares the company can buy back, the more the remaining shareholders should benefit.
    And management can always give themselves some new options…

    They exercised stock options to sell shares in the open market, such depressing the price and inciting shaky shareholders to give up shares in the tender.
    Manipulation, yes, but legal.

    Hi tracey, I always appreciate your opinion. I am more optimistic than you, because I’m expecting an earnings explosion. Why else would they have the tender instead of continuing with the re-purchase? According to Schlanger, “the tender provides and opportunity to buy a more significant amount of shares at one point of time”. So they are in a hurry, because once they have signed up the new orders, the stock is not going to be that cheap.

    NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- WebMD Health (Nasdaq: WBMD) has been upgraded by TheStreet Ratings from hold to buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, notable return on equity, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.
    Highlights from the ratings report include:
     WBMD's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 11.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 12.0%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
     WEBMD HEALTH CORP reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past year. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, WEBMD HEALTH CORP turned its bottom line around by earning $0.33 versus -$0.44 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($0.86 versus $0.33).
     The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Internet Software & Services industry. The net income increased by 272.1% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $2.61 million to $9.72 million.
     The company's current return on equity greatly increased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of significant strength within the corporation. Compared to other companies in the Internet Software & Services industry and the overall market, WEBMD HEALTH CORP's return on equity exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
     Net operating cash flow has increased to $34.08 million or 48.48% when compared to the same quarter las

    I can’t remember, but I don’t think so.
    Given the good results, short-covering might help and force them to increase the price.

    I remember a WBMD tender they had to increase the price because the stock went up past the initial offer before they even started....

    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.

    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.

    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.
