    Short Term.

    Any views on the short term--say for the next 30 days or so. 13.50 to 14 seems to be the trading range. Just wondering about break out over 14 and where it would end. But I think 15 would be expecting too much. I would appreciate opinions on this.I will reply to all.

      It´s a small miracle thatm Yahoo has stayed above 13 this long. 30 days, I expect Yahoo to close more often under 13 than over.

    • if you want to see what a break-out looks based on fundamentals look at a 6 month chart of AAPL.

      This is what YHOO should have accomplished this week with the market move up.

      It didn't. Why? Because the company is not trading on fundamentals.

      It is trading on deal speculation.

      My sense is the stock has reached its maximum until a deal can be reached.

      Until there is clarity or fact based rumor this stock is stuck between 12.7 and 14.

      If there is no deal heading into earnings week I expect significant selling pressure to emerge....

      The longer without a deal, the lower the price.

      MSFT has indicated they want a deal.
      Bartz has said talks will remain private, but her gut is against a deal
      The BOD spent $79M last year to avoid a deal

      Yhoo BOD is shamefully irresponsible toward its shareholders and should resign in shame.

      A deal could've been in place for months now resulting in improved cash flow and operating results, but no, they decided its better not to do a deal and lay off employees instead.

      What a bunch of swell guys....

        Agree 120%.
        I've been thinking about the ramifications for Yhoo's CEO and board of directors not responding to Ballmers recent overtures for some kind of a deal.

        It reeks of irresponsibility to shareholders for a second time and if it happens, should not be dismissed by shareholders as tough luck. We should collectively be able to do something if nothing happens and Ballmer walks away.

        Thanks for that reply. I agree with you what you say on fundamintals and AAPL comments.If the market gets a pullback, and one is now due, it could very well drop to 12.70 I was in much the same frame of mind as yourself and when it traded at 14 recently, I sold the April 15 out of the money call and there is a good chance that this will expire worthless and I am quite happy with that.
