The longer Alibaba Group takes to go public the more Yahoo will get for their 24% of Alibaba Group. When do you think Jack Ma will announce the Alibaba Group IPO?
That's great for their Balance Sheet, but how does it impact their P&L? Does it increase their Revenue? Margins? Profit? Improve their customer base? Add share?
One-time asset sales mean almost nothing. If Yahoo can't improve their core business and drive earnings growth, then they might as well sell everything and go under. The fact that the only positive thing you can say about Yahoo is these asset sales should scare the #$%$ out of you - if you were smart enough to understand why...
But just keep cheering, that should make everything better.
