    I am expecting a 1 time dividend... Too many of Yahoo shares are now tied up and unavailable for trade

    due to big funds now holding even more of the stock... I do not believe Yahoo will be able to repurchase much more stock without spiking the stock to $25+.. People do not understand how long and difficult it is to buy back stock when there is over 90% of you o/s are tied up with insiders, institutions, and long term holders. I believe there may be only 100-200m shares available to trade. I believe that by the next earnings you may get a one time dividend because the company only bought back $300+ million in shares. This of course is jmho... Either way it is good!!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • This is a CEO that is very hard to read her mind. This will only tell me that she is very "sophisticated CEO". We can only speculate what she will do or decide to give shareholders a one-time special cash dividend or not. I hope she will give us shareholders say $1 to $2 special cash dividend as well as continue her share buyback and small to medium acquisition that will help to increase revenue.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • The longer that wad of money sits in a Yahoo bank account; the less likely it is that a dividend will be paid. If it not done before year end, you can forget about it.
