u cud be right,you should then load up. The sell off today would then be puzzling. Usually when a good deal is coming there are upticks days before. Overall yaHOO got thrown a bone if anything from Alipay issue. I would say those investing share that view, look at the stock price. I think the shorts will take it below 10.
You read it well. Bartz said prepping and signing documents takes time. That means they have come to terms, the documents are being drawn up, checked and re-checked, and will then be signed.
It's a done deal.
I agree. She also said toward the end of the call that it is literally several documents with "hundreds of pages".
Now why, I ask you, would they need to draft up hundreds of pages for an agreement pertaining to Alipay's compensation to the Alibaba Group? Seems to me this could be a more comprehensive set of agreements, including a possible rationalization of Alibaba Group by Yahoo....or even an Alibaba-led acquisition of Yahoo itself.
Hundreds of pages and the complexity they speak of is well in excess of what would be needed to compensate Alibaba for Alipay being stripped out of it. This should be exciting once the news is out!
...pending documentation and signatures. Just like AOL buying Microsoft, Korea buying California...pending documentation and signatures.
And there is no maybe about it you are not thinking.
