    I'm just a investor that play options also.
    Right now I'm looking at Warren Buffett's long position in Express Scripts, and also see Walgreens with its hedge fund investors as being overvalued, CVS is also in the retail drug sector however it has developed a different business model (PBM) and it also is trading at a all time high..

    If you want to follow a good buy and sell trade now look up HTZ..
    made $1,000 on that one in a few days..

    GLTA!!

    Hi max:

    You are overthinking what big money they can see...
    The Investment bankers who have a good line of sight on these financial also took a hit on Hertz bond market Friday..
    What is still not known is how far this manipulated rat hole goes..

    I'm offering $19.00 on Monday !!

  • As Walgreens has been busy filling the Media's appetite for news with its billions of dollars being raised through Corporate debt offerings needed in the merger with Boots, the legal case of Miquelon v Walgreens is gathering dispositions.
    A cooks county Judge has recently suppressed 80% of Miquelon's evidence from corporate E-mails and other communications presented to the court under a work product ruling, Yet this evidence may still find its way into this lawsuit..

    In fact a request for a SEC Investigation was sent to the SEC by a pension Funds advisor, calling for a independent review of Walgreens Financial Filings before allowing the Alliance Boots Merger to move ahead.
    These Dispositions In a Civil case become available and enters into the purview of the SEC this may slow down or even derail this Merger that has not been voted on by Walgreens shareholders to date.

    And we also know there are several Large Hedge funds invested in Walgreens currently, and these investors
    are here for one thing...THE MONEY.. holding long and short positions.
    As it is the SEC policy in not commenting on a investigation, it does become the responsibility of Walgreens BoD to release any communication with the SEC to its shareholders..

    Reflecting on one of Mr. Miquelon suppressed E-mailed presented to the court, he outlined a questionable or deliberate attempt to keep Walgreens BoD's uninformed for the need to restate Walgreens earnings numbers prior to the Alliance Boots merger.... as well as his employment being in jeopardy during a shareholders conference call.
    As a new Valuation in earnings has been released, and Mr. Miquelons resignation, this news has also resulted in a 1billion dollars cut in Expense announcement.
    Operational hours and business services offered by Walgreens is beinng cut as reported and discussed on another internet message boards, this not the best signal for growing revenue.

    GLTA!!

    I agree Mr. Icahn can pull his shipwreck out of the water, but without reliable financial information
    know one knows if Hertz is salvageable or will be sold off for Scrap.
    As common shareholders lose all is a Scrap sale, Hedge funds move-in for the potential sell off or break up of the company.. either event will likely occur.
    One thing is for sure, Hertz will sell off assets, down sizing will happen and Investment bankers will find private investors who want the cream of Hertz holdings.
    I seriously doubt Hertz will return to it former selling price while Financials are now being investigated/reviewed by the SEC..
    Should the DOJ mov- in, from shareholders requests, it is then possible we will see executive clawbacks from Compensations packages, paid back to Hertz shareholders with Media perk walks by former executives.

    Either way Hertz has entered the Hedge Funds Twilight Zone

    GLTA!!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Yes Investors, Walgreens has lawyer up for the Last 5 years as a result of Managements failures and a board of Directors shameful handling in its responsibility for being accountable to its voting shareholders.. these failures in the last 5 years resulted in multi-million dollar fines and settlements.
    It was reported in yesterday WSJ, that a large activist investment hedge fund has placed a long/short Target on Walgreens Board of Directors Chairman, former Company..., Walgreens Chairman of the Board was the former CEO of MCD..
    Jana Partners as was reported by the WSJ, placed a multi million dollar hedged fund position in McDonalds (MCD).
    As Jana Partners is a Major Hedge fund firm on Wall-street, its success has been seeking out corporation deception, lies and Incompetence in leadership and seeking Change in Corporate governance.
    Hedge Funds use leveraged Money, with Wealthy investors money to challenge a company to meet on the Market trading floor for Valuing a Corporation Selling Price.

    Stay tuned folks Short or Long.. billions will be made or lost..

    GLTA!!

  • Hertz Ex CEO Mark Fissora is at the Center of Hertz financial crisis, and the SEC is doing nothing about this.
    Carl lost $40.4 million in market value on Hertz’s stock Friday, if his holdings remained the same. At the intraday low, he was down as much as $123 million.
    Barry Rosenstein of Jana Partners has not commented on his companies loss either.
    Mr. Rosenstein sits on the Same Board of Directors and Mr. Fissora, that being Walgreens Co.
    Should these two be in the same room together expect to see a pay for view caged event to the death.. and a head mounting presentation to the Carl Icahn children's fund.

    Hertz Bond Dump

    Vincent

    I agree many shorts players did cover their positions today and made money, however the carried asset Value of Hertz now is adjusted downward for large hedge funds owning this stock as the shorts have taken money off the table.
    The short holders like large hedge funds who also own shares at a higher buyin price and use leverage in their funds now have a lower ownership cost but are still paying leverage costs , now they are faced with hertz having a SEC investigation and unknown financials for 2012, 2013 and no spin off in business assets until mid 2015 so their risk for HTZ getting a higher price has now increased..
    The Time Value of money invested from a hedge fund does not enjoy the same long term benefits of Mutual funds Leverage cost money so expect Volatility with wider price swings.
    This is great for the trader not so much for the mutual fund business, pension funds, IRA and \Roth holder.
    So I think we can go lower that the $19.+ we saw today before financial are released.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The fish rots from the head
    Words from a wise Women.

    Geez, is Walgreens CEO involved in a lawsuit by his former CFO..

    I thought I smelled something fishy..

    Thank you Ms. Cohen

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    "The fish rots from the head is an old saying that I’ve used both as a personal philosophy and as a bond market rule. If you’ve never heard the phrase, I use it here to mean that rotten leadership is the root cause of most corporate failures. We could go back into financial history and examine such convicted felons as: Dennis Kozlowski (Tyco), Jeffrey Skilling (Enron), John Riga (Adelphia) and Bernie Ebbers (Worldcom). You could probably add your own list, but you get the idea.

    Most recently, Hertz CEO, Mark Frissora, rotted his way right out the door. So far there are no accusations of criminal wrongdoing that I know of. In early June, Hertz (the car and equipment rental company) announced that its financial statements for 2011-2013 would be restated. By the way, Hertz hasn’t reported financial results for the first or second quarter. Investors are flying totally blind. You can appreciate how messed up this is.

    We owned Hertz bonds for clients beginning in 2012. As soon as the announcement was made we sold those Hertz bonds. Equity investors sometimes use such bad news as a buying opportunity. That’s not as true for us bond investors. Think about it: A leveraged balance sheet, B rated bond, a CEO and CFO who clearly do not have their arms around the company’s financials—the same goes for their accounting firm and Hertz’ board.

    The odor of this Hertz flounder is awful. The real question we ask: Is this terminal? Equity investors don’t think so. Although high yield investors sold bonds off, they have only partially recovered. Some of the news wires reported on September 8, Frissora stepped down for personal reasons. Rrrright.

    The lessons learned go on forever when investing. So learn from the Hertz fiasco. If management, the board, or outside auditors don’t know the numbers, how can the investment public? The answer is, we can’t"

    Should out Thank You Marilyn

    Please explain your logic!!! Hertz is down 5.6% and Hertz Bonds are selling off today at a 2% discount, Hertz next month will break AGAIN thru loan convents and the SEC is doing a Audit investigation.
    As Hertz is self investigating its own financial problems, I'm sure they are avoiding landmine like today disclosure of informing Investors of a SEC Investigation.
    These executives and directors are partying as the company is burning down..

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Hertz 5.875% high yield bonds due 2020 shed two points, to 99.5/100.5, while the 6.25% notes due 2022 traded down the same amount, to 99.5, according to sources and trade reports. The company’s stock was down roughly 3% in pre-market trading, at $22.15.
    Looks like the ultimate debt holders don't like today news either.
