    Share Buybacks finally huge to YHOO shareholders

    Explosive growth of YHOO Japan and Alibaba Group with YHOO owning 35% and 24% stakes respectively is definitely huge to YHOO shareholders. I hate to be over inflated here but these assets are big big big to YHOO shareholders, $20 or $25 or $30 per YHOO share when I don't know but it is very real to happen. I fully agreed with MM that this YJ stakes especially is "strategic" to YHOO because this property is "in Japan", business rules is copycat to U.S., very important asset to YHOO going forward. Finally, less oustanding shares, more value to YHOO shareholders shares.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Almost every Asian asset is subject to overvaluation speculation. Go find the hard documents that show in black and white the actual value of any Asian company. That is why investing in most Asian stocks is so risky.
      If you are not buying into a managed diversified fund or ETF of Asian securities, you will probably lose money.

      Didn't the head of Alibaba get caught transferring some assets to another company that he owned? Sure did!
      This flash rally in YHOO can quickly turn into a flash crash.

      • $5B more or less and more to come (MM and CFO Goldman statement Q4 conference) that share buybacks will continue. This is huge today to YHOO shareholders values. I hope you get my point of contention in regards to YHOO core, 35% stakes in YJ and 24% stakes in Alibaba Group. That is why now you are witnessing a very strong upward movements of YHOO share. Based on Barclays assesstment, we haven't priced in these assets to YHOO share yet. That is scary to say to least. So I say $25 per share soon and $30 per share when YHOO Asian is completely monetiZed. We could have a buyout offer afterward.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy
