I too have talked with numerous RAD and WAG employees and also hear "the merger is a done deal." I believe the RAD and WAG employee's carry more weight than the baseless opinions of most board posters. Some offer educated and thought out opinions, but a few simply make silly, negative comments
Oh so you have "TALKED to numerous RAD and WBA employees and they carry more weight than most posters ! That's because you don't understand those posters and like those employees they DON'T UNDERSTAND THE BUSINESS WORLD , they are told what they WANT TO HEAR LIKE YOU to make them the most productive workers. You got a lot to learn !
ODP and OfficeMax will do better on their own.
I agree they will do better on their own because they have to but I don't think it will happen as fast as you want it to. This is going to take time turning the whole economy around from the low growth Obama years.
You're a foolish emotional old man with tunnel vision an the inability to broaden your scope and an embarrassment to yourself. Back to ignore you go.
HO NO ! Not THE IGNORE ! ANYTHING BUT THAT !
Go ahead, take the easy way out. You are so WEAK as a person. Can't think of an argument. Think insults
are the answer for you short comings. I feel sorry for you.
superbowel read the article and think a little before you keep posting. You are making a fool of yourself and the board is starting to feel sorry for you.
First let me teach you something.
You posted 3 messages to me because you are all worked up and emotional. Never get emotional trading stocks.
Second the guy that wrote that article is LONG what did you think he was going to say !
Never trust FREE information , somebody is paying them to "SPIN" their story. That's why I pay for ZACKS, their duty is to service me, I'am the one paying them for their research. They don't hold, sell, or buy any stock and will not promote any stock. If you don't like them, don't pay for their service, simple.
Learn HOW TO CONNECT THE DOTS ! and look for the negatives and the RED FLAGS ! ANYBODY can pump a stock, that's easy.
$7.66 is what the stock is worth today. That is the BALANCE of the odds given the stock going either way and the current "trend" is that balance price is going lower.
This is a very interesting case study to follow.

All of a sudden these "rodents" are everywhere.
That's right, lets not except the FACTS ! All you can do is attack with insults because you can't handle the truth !
Why is the PPS the lowest since Nov LAST YEAR , an FALLING ON HEAVY VOLUME ?
You don't have a CLUE do you !
Why would any investor or hedge fund manager sell a stock at 7.50 if he knew that it would fetch 9.00 within a year (a 20% return) ?- Answer: The smart money knows that the merger is not going to be approved. It's that obvious.
You didn't finish the ANSWER. The smart money knows that the merger is not going to be approved and the share price will be cut in half for a big time lost for investors ! It's the "haircut" That's really going to hurt.
President TRUMP - I LOVE how that sounds.
Well he isn't my first choice but he sure beats Crooked Hillary who really should be behind Bars !
I wish they would pass a law not to broadcast Crooked Hillary voice first thing in the morning, I HATE that voice !
Reading these boards I know how Donald Trump is about to get the Republican nomination. If this is America today that is what we should be worried about.
just what is that suppose to mean ?
As ace you some times post substance but always negative.
Let me take the time to explain something to you so maybe you understand me better. First you will never find one post that I call anybody a name and you cannot show that in any post I ever made. Second I 'am not Ace but I do agreed with him on most issues. The most important thing I look for in a stock is the negatives so if you post those you're going to get "thumbs down, but the good investors want to hear it.
You can't be emotional and you are emotional. If somebody doesn't agree with you then you post back once, twice, three times because you get so worked up.
I take back the comment about you losing money, I don't wish that on anybody.
RAD to me is a "study". I had been investing for 53 years and most of the lesson's I learn the hard way but you remember them that way, you call them silly.
First I NEVER call anyone a name you're the EXPERT on that. I said you were "DUMB" which I also never insult anybody but in your case you are the exception.
Also I never like to see anyone lose money but in your case I hope you lose everything and you will !
I also suspect something has leaked and the shorts are working for an exit.
DREAM ON ! Are you REALLY THAT DUMB ?????
Might match the AVG. Volume in just the first 30 min !
DEAD, DEAD, MONEY.
If you own the stock a year ago (May 22 $8.56) you lose (today $7.66), 90 cents.
If you own the stock 2 years ago (May 22 2014, 7.76) you lose 10 cents.
So RAD isn't DEAD MONEY it's worse than DEAD MONEY and with today's Volume and after market news RAD may be 4 bucks next week. Save the bad news for the weekend.
Most analysts have a Hold on the stock and the Volume is still high but the PPS had a setback with the market yesterday but it should recover today.
What an EGO the Fed members have. They have to have all the attention when 95%of the time they are just full of B..S !
If You're going to raise rates just do it don't talk, talk, talk! Cowards ! Showboats ! Useless Washington #$%$ !
Next post I'll tell you how I REALLY FEEL !
On May 13 the new Bank Agreements were signed and put in place.
On May 16 the Merger release agreement was signed and filed with the SEC.
On May 19, today the final payment for 250M is to be paid and again that money has been spend already, it's gone.
There is no SEC Filing for stock being purchased , S4 to date.
After today all the agreements and payments are done and Office Depot is on its own .
The company has set up a defense for an Hostile Takeover before the merger agreement with Stables so that is still in place but many times they don't work. If somebody wants Office Depot they will go directly to the shareholders with a good offer to buy their shares, mgmt. is out of the picture except for the fact that in a Hostile, mgmt. will not show the Hostile the "Books" and will look for a "White Knight" to buy the company with good terms for mgmt.
Office Depot is well positioned to reap the benefits from the sales-driving initiatives undertaken by it and OfficeMax following the revival of the economy. These include cost management, closing underperforming stores, reducing exposure to higher dollar-value inventory items, shuttering non-critical distribution facilities, concentrating on e-Commerce platforms as well as focusing on providing innovative products and services. The company closed 181 retail stores in the U.S. in 2015 and plans to close over 50 outlets in 2016.
Further, the companies have been improving in-store shopping experience, increasing investment in Copy & Print Depot and Tech Depot services, remodeling stores and introducing smaller format stores. All these are likely to drive revenue growth. Moreover, Office Depot is streamlining its European operations to focus more on business rather than on geographies.
That buying started @ 1257 and continued right into the close WHILE the rest of the market was jumping all over the place because of the FED.
I think somebody was ACCUMULATING Shares for some reason I can only guess. They had market makers buy ODP in a window keeping the PPS @ $3.50 the whole afternoon.
I think "Something is up" or something is going to happen.
Then again maybe someone is just accumulating the stock.
This should take it up over $3.60
