Re/code's Kara Swisher reports the coldones landlord has hired well-known tech i-banker Frank Quattrone to help it explore options/sale of the coldones core assets; Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley are already on the payroll. The landlord is exploring the potential sale of the assets (Laz-Z-Boy, pretzel bowl, and bongs) to cover overdue rent. Those items are currently worth $28. Many believe the items are worthless, but Citi recently published a price target of $32. Expected bidders include Verizon, Comcast, Microsoft, AT&T, Disney, Facebook, Google, IAC, News Corp, Twitter, Softbank and Alibaba. This is going to be a bidding war - ha!
I am so embarrassed to be part of this army. There are now 21 thumbs down on this post in only 3 days. The only positive comments in this entire message are from the Coldones multiple identities. Everyone else on this board hates us and is laughing at us because we post a buy, delete it when the price drops and then repeat. Look below, this buy is only up $1 and we are celebrating that and are bashing those that point out all of our bad buys over the last year. I am cold and lonely and want to see my mommy
The morons who work for Yahoo and run Yahoo, don't even read the articles they post from other sources, or do they proof read anything they post. End result huge amount of misinformation and humongous amounts of misspelling, typos, dropped sentences, and paragraphs. An extremely poorly managed company. They should close it, instead of trying to pedal it off on someone else.
Bb-why so long for the sale-its called "uniformity" ! no revenue or profits for 4 yrs.! no sales of assets for 4 yrs.! 4 yrs of draining yahoos assets! 4 yrs of watching the yahoo board sell their extremely-extremely generous options while yahoo is being evaluated (report card) as "f" "f"'f''f' for" no" results! 4 yrs. yahoos board watched the shareholders suffer continuously- while they gave themselves a fortune! you would think the board would want to get out immediately but wait to you see the shareholders "exit" cost for them!
Kara S during interview with CNBC today, Kara thinks that MM doesn't want to sell YHOO and MM is making many alibis about the idea of selling YHOO. Kara also said MM' turnaround plan would not work.
toby001-give a break to mm? look at her results & the shareholders should of given her & the board a 4 yr. break & they would be been better off! toby-recent comments read today should be added to giving her a break! she is disliked by 66% of the employees! 26 start-up founders & executives left -try finding any positive there- while LOOKING for any revenue & THE THING CALLED PROFITS! don't forget more run-aways will join the rest very soon that yhoo paid a fortune for their starts ups! remember the enthusiasm generated for tumplr & it was rated in the top 6? last i read it wasn't even in the top 100 -check out the cost of that co.! remember LIVETECT? now known as "DEADTECT"! RECENT COMMENT WAS ITS APPS DROPPED OUT OF THE TOP 1000! great buy! not being in the top 1000 might be a better rating then all the other acquisitions that never were mentioned because maybe-just maybe -maybe- there is nothing to mention! it sounds like there are more than enough "BREAKS" ALREADY IN TO MANY AREAS!
Wal*Mart told her she had a job as a Greeter when Lee Scott and the Yahoo Board fires her...
Looks like no more page spreads in Vogue...
but I did hear...
The Toad Suck Persimmon would like for her to spread it over 5 pages in their magazine for #$%$'s and Cedar Hackers...
Sentiment: Strong Sell
i wouldn't be too concerned about what cramer said about "giving it away". it was a bit facetious and he did say "after backing out alibaba"
but the comments made him about marrying up some of the yhoo assets with aol's was something to serious consider. there were a lot of positive things said in that interview.
but it was a VERY interesting discussion and i'd seriously suggest everyone here to listen to it.
btw, i wonder how many remember the little get-together between tim armstrong & MM back in sun valley.

McAdams sounds like a CEO with a plan. But how will Yahoo shareholders feel about Cramers comment that "the company is being given away"?
"6 Reasons Why the 2016 Super Bowl Is Greener and More Philanthropic Than Ever"
a little excerpt:
"Here are six ways this year’s committee, which includes former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Yahoo CEO Marissa Meyer, is helping to make the Super Bowl 50 an event that not only promotes sustainable practices but aims to give back to those who can’t afford a game day ticket."
how much static will she get for that?
here's a link to that video:
they start talking about yhoo around the 3 minute mark.
(4th try with this one)
it's a very interesting conversation.
