Yahoo! Inc. (YHOO) Message Board

  • xquestor xquestor Jan 29, 2014 1:47 PM Flag

    MARISSA"s Spending Spree

    At one time the talk on this board was about the anticipated dividend payout from the sale of Alibaba's stock. Then there was talk about a stock buyback. In the end what shareholders have received is a portfolio of company purchases that have all been shut down with no return to shareholders. The capital gains taxes have been paid and new employee's added and Yahoo is still the same old Yahoo. The only change that I can see is that more useless ads are being loaded on each page; slowing down the page load. The direction Yahoo has taken is quite puzzling. The message boards are still screwed up as is customer service responses to problems with web pages.

    • Hate to say it, fellow Yahoo shareholders. Yahoo's price today is riding the lower Bollinger Band down. Looks like Yahoo could not close above resistance of $36.52. Alibaba share price is also dropping which will affect its IPO. That is if it even occurs. Does Jack Ma really want to sell off his baby? I don't think so!

    • The direction Yahoo has taken doesn't seem puzzling when I look at who benefits.

      Aside from the big severance packages to Yahoo and Google employees, Google and Apple will probably benefit when Windows PC users get tired of slow and confusing page views and have to switch to a wireless device. Facebook, Twitter and Amazon stock look very overpriced but their long term future looks bright. Unfortunately, Dell, HPQ, YHOO, MSFT and people who use desktop PCs will probably not do so well. Yahoo will probably be left behind similar to when people had to switch to broadband because Yahoo news pages were suddenly too huge to view with dialup.

    • Ok fellow Yahoo shareholders! Do you realize how much of your money is being awarded as stock options?
      MILLIONS! Enough to pay us dividends. Go to EDGAR and see for yourself.

    • Ok people! Go to the seeking alpha transcript pages and do some research on YHOO.
      Like did you know that $70 million in earnings came from the sale of patents. And that $304 million came from the closure of a currency hedge trade in the Q4 earnings report. Well that will not happen again! So; how will YHOO shore up next quarters earnings to make it appear that they are taking market share?

      Read the other SA articles also. The truth will be revealed. YHOO will not allow the link to be posted. Their form of censorship.

    • You forgot to mention which CNBC did the other day that the guy she fired made $1.5 million a day for the days he worked. She screwed the shareholders big time. She has to go, the sooner, the better.

    • Jan 30, 2014. YHOO closes below the lower daily Bollinger Band even though it was up for the day.
      The 10 year weekly chart shows YHOO is still overbought and has some more to go on the downside.
      The weekly chart has a very well defined double top!
      Back to test $25? Could be; or maybe $20.
      It is almost as if someone knows something! Something that might cause a sell off of a greater magnitude.
      $7.27 is a pretty steep drop for a company that supposedly has such a bright future with regards to Alibaba and Yahoo Japan.

      IMHO it just does not add up

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Well today YHOO has recovered somewhat. The problem is that the technical damage has been done. The price is still below the lower Bollinger band which is in a downtrend and is acting as resistance to any upward move. Bad news still to come? I think so.

      I believe that the next rock to fall will be the listing on the Hong Kong exchange; if that even happens.

    • see JCP. What happens when you think you have a great CEO, who ends up being Mark Sanchez

    • That was my problem with Mayer. Everyone loves talents… me too. but you can not go on a shopping spree buying companies when you have no clue on how to integrate and when one tries to, often fails then succeed. Look at Google, just sold Motorola. Mayer should have focus on buying Technologies that will enhance display ad monetization and build a vicious sales team like Facebook did. That is really all she really needed to do. Oh, boy … Yahooers are lucky that Jerry left lots of wealth through Alibaba and Yahoo Japan … to support Mayer's shopping habit. Why do you think Dan Loeb unloaded a bunch at $29? He saw the strategy and he knew that Alibaba and Japan asset will pin Yahoo around $30. So he went out large chunk early. What does he care … it is all about making a quick buck for him.

      Sentiment: Hold

      • We have no idea what the real value of Alibaba is. After all it is a Chinese company and does not submit any reports to the SEC. And; many people have forgotten about the report of a secret transfer of assets to Ma. Wonder what else has been going on behind closed doors. Bet Alibaba does not list on a U.S. exchange. I for one am not convinced that Alibaba is what it is claimed to be.
        Anyone have an idea as to the true value of Yahoo Japan?
