    Jellen made her comments already and Twitter’s earnings proved her wrong.
    However, Investors will always find something to worry about…

    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.

    I have been trying to short since $45 but cant get any shares. Obviously, it is a MUST short now - but Chuck cant get me shares. And I dont trade options.

    jakemalloyip • Jun 19, 2014 8:58 AM
    Buying puts all the way up. There is no support once the shorts leave. Nothing worse than a stock rally on no news and no real catalyst. This is an easy short. If you are long and do not sell at these levels you are a chump.

    Steve and Tracey, reading your posts is always interesting.
    However, I don’t agree with your assumption that Marty eventually is going to sell this company to somebody else and just ride into the sunset.
    Why? As P.G. Wodehouse’s Jeeves would say, because of the psychology of the individual.
    Marty is now 75, his daughter is looking after the horses, his son is working for WBMD and his wife is busy with health-charities with much of the money provided by WBMD.
    He is a bit old to start something new, and he wouldn’t want to as the one he has been working on for so long is not finished yet.
    And he is not somebody who would just retire and look after the garden.
    Already with the creation of Medco, his aim has always been to help contain the costs of American Healthcare, and finally, with WBMD, he has got the ideal tool to do just that.
    So I think you are going to see him at the helm of that company for as long as he is able to do it.
    So don’t speculate on a takeover. It won’t happen.
    However, you might speculate on WBMD becoming a hot growth company, with eye-popping earnings and a share price to go with it.

    Thank you, Steve, for your very informative posts.
    There will always be the one or other, who criticises, and it always seems to be the same.
    But, as he has proved over and over again that he doesn’t know what he is talking about, who cares?

    That is, of course, if the market doesn’t fall out of bed, if the Israelis or Russians or Monaco don’t start WW III, and so on, and so on….

    I think the base has now been built and if we get eye-popping earnings and new improved guidance, we’ll be past 60 within a few weeks.

  • limpingbull by limpingbull Jul 2, 2014 2:12 PM Flag

    There is something those who are so negative don’t seem to get :
    1. The amount of money pumped into the system is such that all real values have to go up eventually.
    2. The change in healthcare is here to stay and is changing the whole industry
    3. This change will be done with IT techonology and every company in that field will profit from it
    4. WBMD is by far the biggest of those and is bound to be in the forefront
    5. Marty Wygod has had his big defeat and is not going to repeat it
    6. We now have a company that is lean and mean, with a very low float that will it make extremely difficult for the shorts to cover their positions
    7. Only one little positive news will ignite a run up of the stock, that would be a disaster for the shorts.

    In my June 27 post I said “Expect excellent results for the second quarter, with stock going up past $60 on big volume.
    Shorts that don’t cover before will be dust.”
    I stick with it.
