    Glad I bought the investor day news.
    Now the question is do you buy more, sell the news, or hold? Any opinions on the direction of this company?

    These dudes having a investor day? The 9th. Stock has done nothing but go down. Not sure they can say anything to make people like the stock.

    the selling of the retail research arm of Nielsen was always the intent when they announced the split of the divisions a year ago...hence the long delay of implementation...the late Mr Nielsen just turned over in his grave with the announced sale today (11/1)

    I started following "awesomestokcalerts" (Gooogle it - off course without any space or dash in between the words) and their notifications are better than anyone else.

    They're squabbling on price. Also still considering if they should break up watch and buy into pieces or sell it whole. The debt is the big issue right now.

    Confirmed deal is done. Happened very late last night. Price still being finalized, somewhere around $31, $32 and change. Comes down to NPV and EBITDA calculations...details. Call options buyers the last couple of days will be VERY happy (and should be investigated).

    OK. Price action from today shows that momentum is done and tired with this stock. Simply no more buyers out there. This thing will see $22 in the next 4 weeks. Mark my words and sell as best you can. There is no reason with the earnings they announced, that the stock held up this much, even with the private equity interested in it. Pain coming.

    Nielsen moving higher on chatter that the company has canceled out of an upcoming conference in the midst of their ongoing strategic review...from briefing

    None the less, Blackstone and Apollo are not dullards. They know what they are doing. They did’nt want to pay $28 because there is no way to get from under the $8 billion in debt they would be assuming. They can’t sell the asset to anyone, 3-5 years from now... this thing is not a utility and their customers are increasingly going to FB and SNAP to get their metrics. This thing only has $1.48 in cash per share, somehow manages to pay a dividend of $1.40 per share and has a total debt to equity ratio of 2.75. Think about it.... at an EBITDA of 1.47 billion in 2018, their DEBT/EBITDA is 5.7x which is way higher than many utility, energy, or material stocks. Either a dividend cut, more writeoffs coming or equity dilution.... since there is no cash to operate... and we now know that private equity won’t buy. This thing is fairly valued at about $14

    Hearing out of lower Manhattan there is a legitimate bid on the table. Sounds like the issue right now is valuation...debt, cash flow, etc. Typical EBITDA stuff. The "low 30's" number is rumor mill. Blackstone and Apollo were talking $28 range. So somewhere between what it is now ($26) and $30-31 is where it will probably land. It will sell...what they do no one else has been able to replicate. What they need is discipline...and a common IT system internally (which is killing them right now).
