Reading your postings I'm afraid Abraham Lincoln's famous reflection springs to mind:
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.
As I have said before, I believe Marty and Pessina are going to collaborate as together they are far above everybody else in this business.
And of course there are things that should be of interest to either Walgreens or United Health, although I think United Health would be a secondary choice as WBMD already has deals with WAB. WBMD after all is in the high-tech sector, which the others are not, or not yet.
I can imagine a link-up with Private Portals, but I am not expert enough to know how.
As for FT – they goofed, and now they have mud on their faces and their reputation is down again, and that not for the first time. The arrogance of these so called icons of journalism is quite unbelievable, and I hope those who have lost a bundle are going to sue their pants off.
I'm afraid you are wrong.
The FT is just another outfit trying to make a living in the financial jungle.
It is up to them to make sure that whatever they report is correct.
It is not up to WBMD to react to any BS that is published.
And the reason they say “currently” only makes sure that future sales discussion, lets say after some of us have left us, can still take place.
As I still don't believe Marty would sell the company, I wonder what the negotiations are about.
Could it be that he would turn Private Portals into a separate company, sell part of it to WAB and use it for drug distribution?
Perhaps we are going to get some hints at today's conference...
I doubt there was a leak, as would be leakers know what Marty would do to them.
With such a volume, there probably were some buyers who see beyond earnings from advertising.
Steve, It has been my conviction for quite some time that these two experts will co-operate and will cook up something mind boggling.
