    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.

    Your CEO has the vision to go to Beverly hills real estate auction and offer a final bid of 90 % below the market value. Sadly WU is the SEARS of the industry and because of it's old business model NO one will buy it either

    The only chance for survival for WU is to have a buyout of MGI because that's the cheapest option for now, as you can tell WU is slowly becoming SEARS of the industry

    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

    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.

    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

    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?

    You guys must use the wrong Moneygram or something.
    $MGI is way cheaper than $WU

    Calculated on June 24, 2020:
    .
    MGI: 500 CAD is equal to 284 pounds with $5 fee.

    WU : 500 CAD is equal to 272 pounds with minimum $7 -up too $15 fee. So if one went with WU you would lose on $12 pounds ($21) and spend 2-7 more on fees for the same $500 CAD.

    Meaning for every 500 CAD sent to UK, you save $23-30 sending through MGI rather than WU. mgi is KING.

    We had a nice run but with so much competition not sure if I’m hanging around here. Higher expenses and lesser revenues from FX spreads. Good luck longs!
