WBMD May Be Sold Soon!

As mentioned above, WebMD Health is having a relatively strong day in the market as news with regard to the company’s attempt to sell itself hits the wire. The news is that multiple suitors are currently bidding for their chance to take the company over. According to Dealreporter, the bids are coming in above $61 per share.

While these bids are coming in and there is definitely takeover interest, it’s important to keep in mind that nothing definitive has happened quite yet. There’s no telling whether or not WBMD will accept these bids or if a takeover will actually happen. So, if you plan on trading on this news, please do so with caution.
