The Blackstone Group L.P. Message Board

    Finally a message board!

    No wonder Yahoo stock is down! I think Blackstone and similar companies will not be affected by a down market as M&A will continue to be high while the low capital gains tax rate of 15% is still here for the next couple years. That may be part of the reason for so many M&A deals as many believe congress will not renew it or rather increase it along with other top tax rates that many business owners not incorporated pay at.
