    If we are to go off the RSI then you could argue that a pull back next day or so could occur on WBMD before rallying up. check out awe-som*sto-cks, its a pretty reliable service. of course you have to do your own due diligence, but they generally point you in the right direction.

    There is a voluntary tender for WBMD for $66.50. Be glad you did not accept the earlier tender offers!
    Should you take it now? Maybe. It will turn into an involuntary tender later. Advantage of now is to get the same cash earlier later. The involuntary will probably be this year, so waiting will not move the gain into 2018. You can tell this is real because the current price is very close to the takeover price.

    If your broker charges you for a voluntary, but not an involuntary, then wait. If you use personal finance software, it might be cleaner to wait.

    I have not bothered reading if the tender offer gives cash now, or if it waits until some time later. I will probably wait, since the interest on the cash is not significant these days.

    I think WBMD might have reached its upward limit and that a pullback may be possible. Yo you should really check out Awe-Som.e.Sto-cks., they seem on point with their stocks.

    For those who still keep an eye on it...

    Interesting interview with WebMD's CFO in the Wall Street Journal.
    https://www.wsj.com/articles/webmd-wants-to-go-beyond-medical-information-1502676720
    It sort of confirms my suspicion that their takeover by KKR is just a big maneuver to transform the company into what Marty always wanted it to be. This should be much more easy with KKR's resources and the health companies they already own.
    Once it's done, the new, big WebMD could come back onto the market with an IPO.

    The site aims to be a place where health consumers can also take action.

    Scenario of Wheels within Wheels

    I still can't believe that Marty Wygod would give up on WebMD the way it now sounds.
    WebMD is going to be the surviving company after the merger with Internet Brands' Health Care Company posterior to the takeover by Internet Brands.
    If Marty Wygod stays with the company, it is highly unlikely he would share any power with anybody else.
    So could it be that after having fully integrated the two companies we are going to see an IPO of the new WebMD?

    Takeover
    Surprised by this takeover, I think after all its going to be very positive for WebMD, as it will give them the technology and connections for future growth.
    Whether it is good for us shareholders is an other question. To judge I think we'll have to wait for the final offer to know which company is taking over and if it is quoted on an exchange.

    NO EARNINGS CALL CONFIRMATION YET:
    The latest WebMD has waited before confirming the date of its Earnings Conference Call is 2 weeks before the Call. Therefore, the expected date of August 8, 2017 would indicate an Earnings Call confirmation press release on Tuesday, July 25th, after the market closes.

    BARRY DILLER OF IAC INTERACTIVE LOOKING AT ACQUIRING WEBMD:
    He may have answered my prayers!

    From the presentation and Q&A at annual meeting 1.06.2017
    In their remarks, Marty Wygod and Steven Zazt were very obtimistic concerning future developments:
    “An important thing to understand about health is that consumers generally do not surf health for entertainment. They are researching information to enable them to make important health care decisions. We are very proud of the fact that almost 3/4 our visitors learn something new when they come to WebMD, and almost an equal number are more confident about what to do next. And many our users, armed with greater understanding of their health issues, make an appointment to see their doctor within 30 days of their visit to WebMD. One of the most exciting opportunities ahead of us is to begin to help consumers take the actions that are the next step in addressing their health care needs. Today, consumers come to us to make important decisions about their health. But when they want to take the next step in their journey, they generally need to leave us to do things like booking an appointment, ordering a lab test, or engaging in a telemedicine visit. We see a significant opportunity to move from information to enabling actions, and we believe our reach and the trust in our brand put us in a unique position to satisfy patients' information needs and their desire to take actions to address their health care challenges and concerns.”
    “We brought in several bankers, including JPMorgan, to get their input. We looked at the interest in the company and the alternative strategic ways we could maximize shareholder value. And we reached a decision to enter into a process with JPMorgan, which we're hopeful that will be successful, but we probably won't know for another month or so.”

    Perhaps a short-term pull back is more likely before the next rally on WBMD? Im not sure about you guys but awe.some.stock.s has provided me with some pretty good trade ideas. I messed up executing some of them but thats on me.
