    who said this was good earnings? I don't see any highlights. I've got an avg. price of 17.8 and probably will sell for loss because I see hardly any highlights, terrible guidance

    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.

    we are crushing any new fintech in terms of revenues and soon in EPS, and growing fast. Alex frustrated with sell side analysts for not recognizing the progress that company has made so far and given facts that those same analysts give competitors much higher multiples despite their growth slowing and moneygram's accelerating, think they miss the fact that prey becomes a predator and can not only fight back but to take their projected digital share.

    for a comparison,
    $MGI trades at 4.5 multiple to EBIDTA, has $815M debt
    $WU trades at 7. multiple to EBIDTA, has $4B in debt.
    $WISE trades at x23 multiple to revenue, 0 debt?
    $remitly has $5B valuation (could not find their metrics)

    Global money transfer market is $600B estimated, plenty of room for MGI to grow their digital business as 60-70% of that market is still legacy walk in.

    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.

    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?

    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🤣

    The stock WU seems to react big-time to analyst price targets, which are ALL coming from one firm: Argus. And Argus changes its mind about WU every day or two, it seems. I've never seen such a pace of changing opinion, up, down, down, up - in 2022. Maybe investors should take a deep breath and look at fundamentals here: revenue is supposed to grow 20% plus in the next year. PE ratio is under 9. THe dividend payout is low but the dividend is over 5.2%. The entire third world knows, if you can make it to a WU office, and they are EVERYWHERE, you don't need a computer, not even a smartphone, to get your money from relatives in the US.

    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.
