Information just out as to why YELP is NOT a good acquisition candidate...
1. Yelp is not profitable, and companies want acquisitions accretive to earnings for their shareholders
2. Yelp is not in the same business as OpenTable, and OpenTable is profitable
3. This is nothing more than a short squeeze, and traders feel this move will fade quickly
4. There is way too much competition for Yelp's services, and a company does not need to pay what would be over $8B for Yelp's $200M in revenue.
These are just a few reasons why Yelp will probably not be acquired anytime soon.
