Cabbyjoe, the last link on post number 113120 indicates that Softbank was indeed invested in Alibaba.com via Softbank China Holdings. Funny that my search engine only took me to an older website that didn't link to the new one and was basically useless. I suspect that the only way to find this website is by visiting Softbank first. Have a nice evening. Shadow
thanx shadowdoc. utsi does seem to have a stake and cash value in alababa and focus media. also owns good pieces in cellon and fiberxon, promising companies in their own right. thanx too to uc and yenhan for your tireless searches and for sharing with the board. only question is why is the stock continue to be down. see if our fearles captain lu can right the ship and lead us to calmer waters. in my opinion, we are already out of the center of the perfect storm, but we can still be sucked into it if not careful. lu i have confidence in you.
