    Awesome work WU! You have accomplished something noteworthy. Firmly below the original IPO share price of 19.20 that you had on Oct 2 2006. Congrats. As you know there are many reasons why but foremost is lack of innovation and risktaking. People who are comfortable and want to enjoy the EOY retreats have no reason to take chances. Been about 150 years but I think not much has changed since WU declined on buying the patent to the Telephone from Alexander Graham Bell. Actual true blue uncomfortable drastic alterations, not polished pretty politically correct feel good changes in your comfort zone. Those initiatives as you now know don’t result in significant revenue producing opportunities. Will anything change? Now that the man in the wooden stall is leaving, purge the remaining old timer senior hierarchy and Directors that have never known anything but a steady check and job security. Although 15 or so years late, reimagine the business while you still have capital on the balance sheet and go for it. Great recessions and Coronavirus will come and go but WUs legacy of going nowhere will be with all of you forever.

    Bought a few WU this am. to start a position. Good E. gain ests. for next two years, super div yield, excellent DGR avg., 15 yr. div record, plenty of cash flow to cover divs and share buybacks. Looks like it will work in my early retired increasing div paycheck port....

    Tough stock to read. Ive been counting on analysts to guide my investment in Western. Obviously it hasnt worked out well. EPS and revenues still trending up. Dividend secure given the earnings. No analysts have lowered forecasts much. So hard to figure why stock has fallen so much, Either EPS forecasts will plummet soon. Or stock will jump soon. Hope its the later.

    Quarterly report looks okay to me, especially considering they have been buying back shares, paying a fat dividend, and the stock is cheap!

    Odd that this stock isnt doing better. 5% div, 9 PE, 1 Beta. Seems like a good value. What am I missing?

    Solid quarter, met estimate but did not beat them. I did not see any CEO comments yet which would #$%$ people... They tightened up their forecasted earnings of tiny bit...

    Facebook pressured to drop Novi crypto wallet project by Senators
    OCTOBER 20, 2021 BY PARTH DUBEY

    In a letter, the US banking committee Senators have vehemently opposed the revival of the stablecoin and wallet project of the world’s leading social media platform, Facebook.

    Just a few hours had passed after Facebook’s launch of a pilot version in collaboration with a leading crypto exchange, Coinbase when Senators started handing in a letter of disapproval. There were around 5 Senators voicing their concerns regarding Facebook’s revival of its blockchain-based project.

    In a letter, one of the five Senators, Elizabeth Warren, raised her concerns. She is known for her skepticism about crypto and wrote,

    “Given the scope of the scandals surrounding your company, we write to voice our strongest opposition to Facebook’s revived effort to launch a cryptocurrency and digital wallet, now branded ‘Diem’ and ‘Novi,’ respectively.”

    Elizabeth Warren’s letter
    Facebook looking to revive the stablecoin and wallet project
    Facebook had decided to launch a stablecoin termed Libra which failed and is now rebranded as the Diem token. The plan for the release of this project saw a lot of hurdles and remarks from a majority of regulators for the past couple of years.

    It seems that rebranding the project didn’t have any effect on the financial authorities, as they continue to remain dubious of Facebook’s activities and the crypto industry as a whole.

    According to the social media giant, the goal of the wallet is to hold the yet-to-be-released Diem token as well as other stablecoins. The wallet was tested in Guatemala and the US on 19th October in collaboration with Coinbase. The social media platform could learn about the efficiency and demand of their wallet through this testing process.

    Senators against the social media giant
    There were 5 Senators who co-signed the letter, including Tina Smith, Richard Blumenthal, Brian Schatz, Sherrod Brown, and Elizabeth Warren.

    “Facebook cannot be trusted to manage a payment system or digital currency when its existing ability to manage risks and keep consumers safe has proven wholly insufficient.”

    The Senators claimed in the letter
    On the other hand, the social media giant’s partner in the project, Coinbase’s CEO, Brian Armstrong came out in support of David Marcus, the leader of the entire project.

    Facebook just landed the first salvo that will sink WU. The ability to send a regulated US $ stablecoin anywhere in the world will make WU's remittance business completely obsolete.

    Just bought my first lot here @18.35. I disagree with the narrative that stablecoins or FB will kill the business. There are strong regulatory barriers in this sector and these will be extended to crypto. The Leviathan/state will criminalize any free competition.

    Why does WU keep selling off? Exceptional yield, conservative payout ratio, low PE. What gives?
