HealthSouth Corporation (NYSE: HLS) will host a conference call at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday 9/21/11, to discuss management’s preliminary assessment of the potential impact of President Obama’s inpatient rehabilitation-related proposals in his Plan for Economic Growth and Deficit Reduction. “Although the probability that any of the President’s recommendations will be included in the Joint Committee’s final work product is difficult to predict, we believe it is important to share our preliminary thoughts with our investors,” said Jay Grinney, HealthSouth President and Chief Executive Officer. “Specifically, we will discuss the potential impact of increasing the compliance threshold to 75% from the 60% in place today. Currently, 39 of our 97 hospitals operate at, or above, the 75% threshold with another 23 hospitals operating between 70% and 75%.”

MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) management will make a Company presentation Tuesday 9/20/11, at the CLSA Investors’ Forum in Hong Kong. A complete copy of the presentation will be available by visiting our web site at: http://www.mgmresorts.com. MGM Resorts International is one of the world’s leading global hospitality companies, operating a peerless portfolio of destination resort brands, including Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay and The Mirage.

Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) Chairman Eric Schmidt is due to be the center of a political circus on Wednesday 9/21/11, testifying before a Senate sub-committee whose very title is “The Power of Google.” He can change the direction of the hearing by simply changing the subject, and asking Congress what it wants to do, or what it can do, about the dominant Chinese search engine Baidu. At issue in the hearing is not just whether Google is a monopoly, but whether it has abused its position to disadvantage others. Schmidt’s testimony will be followed by a panel where Nextag, Yelp, and two lawyers will try to convince Congress that Google must be regulated.

Ulta Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance, Inc. (NASDAQ: ULTA) on 9/19/11, stated that throughout the month of October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the windows of ULTA Beauty stores across the country will be covered with “love” as ULTA Beauty invites customers to participate in its Windows of Love – Donate with a Kiss™ campaign to support breast cancer awareness and research. This year, ULTA Beauty will cover its windows with kisses, an international symbol of love, with each kiss representing a $1.00 donation in support of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF). Windows of Love – Donate with a Kiss is expected to showcase more than six miles of kisses representing LOVE and SUPPORT across more than 400 ULTA Beauty store windows nationally.
