First,, this is an opportunity for AAPL to diversify further away from hardware.
AAPL can easily afford to acquire YHOO.
It will be a form of horizontal integration for AAPL -- something AAPL has indicated a need for.
And it gives AAPL a low-cost entry into also becoming a large internet company.
I believe AAPL will beat MSFT to the punch that acquires YHOO.
So how imminent is this likely event? IT COULD HAPPEN at any time.
YHOO's cash and foreign assets make it more attractive than its price indicates
A poster said that AAPL and YHOO ARE TALKING -- can anyone verify?
I think so. Yahoo is moving up in anticipation. Apple would steal enough Google revenue to pay for the buyout of Yahoo withing a few Q's.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Waste of money. Apple should buy Google and nuke Android.
