"Yahoo could afford YELP, along with a nice premium, from the proceeds of the Alibaba IPO."
No brainer... Just hold all your shares, sit back n relax, and let it pop this SOON :) That easy!!!
My best guess is YHOO can easily offer $80 to 90/share for YELP now that YELP lost about 50% of its value.
Th thing is YELP's user base is what YHOO will be going after... not the profit margein, and YELP's user growth is growing super fast!!! I wouldn't be surprised if FB and YHOO get in a bidding war :)
That was the kind of hype played when Yelp was around 90's.. not sure if they just want to pump it up by few bucks IMO. Also Alibaba's 'successful' IPO has so many ifs and buts and also Yahoo gets money after all that to think abt.
