    this whole move by $wu into $mgi play turf at $wmt is a classic move by an acquirer pushing the target to accept their terms. It's a fake, they are not gonna make any money on it. And Alex won't buckle, they will out compete $WU.

    Seen this many times on other M&A. Almost never works and the acquirer will have to pay fare market price + premium.

    Cmon Ersek, announce your move already, Alex called your bluff.

    comparing $MGI to $WU on many metrics price should be at least $21-28/sh for Moneygram. That's how

    undervalued this company is. But you already knew that.

    $WU and it's 3.57% in dividends... they are paying out almost an entire market cap for $MGI each year.

    Ersek, I am ready for your offer. Don't cheap out, and don't miss out on an opportunity.

    What is with this stock? Every time it makes a nice move upward it gets pounded back down. Seems to want to go higher but just can't.

    WU is on its way out. If there’s any luck it’ll be acquired by a larger crypto player, for its network of vendors. The cost of Sending crypto is like 90% what are you thoughts?

    Oh oh.

    Is todays reaction saying something about earnings next week?
    Is bad news coming? I was going to buy some but now I am a little leary. Maybe I should wait until after earnings annoucement.

    I would not be surprised if Ersek / $WU would go after $MGI again. buying it would be much better value

    than repurchasing shares / paying dividends imho.

    Shorts have always been active on this stock for as long as I can remember. I strictly remember being ridiculed and disliked for comments like " I am buying more every 5 cents it goes bellow 2.3" . This doesn't make shorts dumb, they have their own interests we have ours. But this isn't the stock to short unfortunately (for them;) . Like I said may 13, 2019 'longs, history will show we are making the right decision'.

    Today I can happily say it has. Furthermore, today September 15, I can say same thing why don't we talk about this in February?

    As for now, like my other stocks I am going to go ghost on this account and will only answer questions from the new people getting in. For the rest of you- ignore the bs-.

    P.S read this post from another thread, if you still want and see why I am so confident:

    TWO years ago $MGI was at $17! There is nothing to say that it won't easily get there by the end of the year! Remember, $MGI revenue ($1.4B) $WU revenue ($5.6B). $MGI is 25% of $WU. Market cap $MGI $0.29B and $WU $9.5B today. That means that $MGI is generating 25% of $WU revenue but is only 3% of the market cap! Hmmmm......With $50M from Ripple, efficiencies in non-VisaDirect payments from $XRP.X, 1st to go live with Visa-Direct.....Can anyone tell me why $MGI would not be able to pay off the remainder of their debt AND continue to grow? Even if their Market cap is 25% of $WU that would make them a $2.3B company with a stock price of $49!

    BTW, MGI transaction prices are current;y 500% CHEAPER THEN WESTERN UNION. NOW YOU TELL ME.

    Peace out.

    interesting in the new financial report Western Union has set aside 2 and 1/2 to 3 billion dollars for acquisition.. they need to get this done it is important for both of their survival
    $mgi very important hint from $wu 2Q financial report “Anticipate approximately $2.5 – $3 billion in dividends and share repurchases (if no significant M&A” Allocation Priorities
    1)M&A 2)Repurchases very strong signal that @WesternUnion is acquiring @MoneyGram

    Few more for you:
    1) $WU is shopping, looking to acquire weaker rivals, with a goal of a) synergy & b) digital strategy
    2) Last time (2015?) there was a rumor of a buyout by $WU, and they quickly came out with a denial, not this time though.

    Needs an updated business model, “Fresh” name (something that does not scream “old person”)and digital payment system for customers all over the world to use whenever they wish, not just at their physical locations- which people can only send and receive $. How old school and way outdated! Goodbye and goodnight WU🤣

    Very little reaction to the BIG deal with Amazon: $1 billion estimated revenue opportunity for a company with $5.6 billion in revenues sounds like a lot to me. Under the radar?

    Yes, PayPal may be convenient, not to mention slow and VERY pricey, in order to use your OWN money. Western Union has become ancient along with Moneygram.
    HUMBL (TSNP) is the digital wallet and several other desired platforms all in one. Whether investors in PayPal, Western Union, Moneygram, etc. want to believe it or not, HUMBL really is the future. I’m not waiting until HUMBL’s stock price escalates to get in. Just think about it, wouldn’t it have been great to get in on the ground floor of PayPal? Very few did. Here is our chance to do that with HUMBL (TSNP). Can’t wait for the new ticker “HMBL”. Investors (the young at first) will flock to this phenomenal company. My generation will need to learn quickly about this technology that HUMBL is packaging for the population. Can’t wait for the new ticker “HMBL”, which will be replacing the “TSNP” ticker in just a few weeks. What an opportunity.

    Will be looking at how these numbers compare to MGI. Notice the comment about digital. Would be nice to get one of these upgrades this week.

    Any reason why this isnt a good stock to keep long term, wu is everywhere and you can use online and offline. Transactions are better for me atleast when i want to send money. And they so charitable work
