alaind4no-delay-delay by yahoo for the sale! AL- its funny to me that shareholders don't realize the amount of money that yahoo has spent IN the last 2 years on expert opinions & STILL PAYING & REVIEWING THE SAME INFO. OVER & OVER! A SALE HAS BEEN TALKED ABOUT BEFORE MM APPEARED! THEY HAVE COUNTLESS EXPERTS (EXCLUDING THE BOARD) & THOSE FIRMS HAVE EXPERTS & EXPERT EMPLOYEES WORKING ALONG WITH THEM! THEY DEFINITELY DON'T NEED THE END OF JULY TO SORT OUT SOMETHING THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON WITH NUMEROUS ASSISTANCE. JUST MY OPINION BUT I CAN'T BELIEVE MOST OF THE BIDDERS COULDN'T BE THROWN OUT IMMEDIATELY & BE LEFT WITH ONLY A COUPLE THAT HAVE REAL OVER VALUE! NEED END OF JULY BECAUSE OF THEIR VACATIONS?
tlee-yes! yesterday i couldn't get into my portfolio or email etc! they seem to be making many changes that some might like but i found ridiculous! there was nothing wrong with the old baseball results which had enough info.! they are providing so much statistics for a baseball game that is unnecessary but i'm sure the gals can't wait to find out what color shorts the players wear! they might even throw in the umpires socks size & amount of time each pitch takes! since they have nothing better to do (profit & revenue was never a requirement) there are many fans anxious to find out after each player gets a haircut- statistics for the next 2 weeks to see if it helped his average!
guppy- i never felt getting rid of downes was the answer! this guy has put uve in an excellent condition! agree totally that he must work more for shareholders within fair compensation but running a company with another ceo doesn't guarantee anything! especially anywhere near what he has PROVEN-not just someone hoping to accomplish results! there were thousands that felt yahoos ceo was the answer & IT WAS A TOTAL-TOTAL-TOTAL DISASTER! IF SHE RAN UVE YOU WOULD OF HAD A HEART ATTACK & she was in the top 20 from google! YOU COULD OF FELT UVE FINALLY HAD THE ANSWER TO THE PROBLEM WHEN DOWNES HAD MORE PROFET & REVENUE % IN ONE MONTH (YES ONE MONTH) THAN SHE HAD IN 4 YRS WITH BILLION-BILLIONS-BILLIONS TO SPEND!
pebble 16x-thanks for your reply about the cash situation! bottom line-core excludes cash/real estate & patents! (hopefully) it will be very interesting to see what the "net cash" amount is for the 2nd. quarter after yahoo gives the "real figures" their finishing touches! everything they accomplish is always less than expected!
mp-maybe msft recent buy is a negative rather than a positive you mentioned! go back and see how many times msft was going to buy yahoo! you could also ask coldone & his so called army! 100 times? maybe msft bought that company since yahoo put BING out business when mfst wouldn't buy them!
pebble 16x- i have one question & asking you since i feel you are the fifth smartest person on this board! of course i count myself 4 times! just kidding! every time i hear the price for the core they mention (or separate real estate & patents) but never mention their cash! why-its taken for granted on this messenger board that it isn't included! have you seen anywhere where it isn't included in the core?????????????? i feel & hope it isn't but no mention of it to my knowledge!
upward- your right its way to long for a decision! yahoos board is doing what they did for the past 4 years-delay & afterwards show lousy results! they don't need 11/2 months more to review under 5 bids! rumors-end of july-stupid! 8 hrs a day for around 50 days to check out 3-5 bids after the time already spent!
dbs_200s-meyers wasted billions & it came back to bite her??? yes she did have a couple bites ( a bandage took care of her) but the shareholders ended up in critical condition compared to what another ceo could of accomplished!
acarap108- value patents for 1.5b? remember the rumors (maybe yahoo also) valued the patents from 1-3b! now under 1b to a little over 1b! anything yahoo does or indicates MEANS WAIT FOR THE DOWNWARD REVISION OR TOTAL SHOCK ---------------------IN THE NEGATIVE!
hotmodel-i gave you a thumbs up because i like your name & i'll bow down now & later! core worth $5b for years! another sign that yahoos board is consistent-can't increase worth-can't increase revenue-can't increase profits-can't increase programs value-can't increase acqisitions value & only can increase their useless worth!
going-i wouldn't be to excited about the patents! remember-remember-remember & ON FILE THAT ALMOST EVERYONE WAS PROJECTING A WIN OF 5-10-20 BILLION AGAINST FB IN YAHOOS SUIT AGAINST THEM! I STATED REPEATEDLY-REPEATEDLY ( got many thumbs down-coldone wrong again) THAT THEY WOULD BE LUCKY TO GET 1 BILLION-WHICH THEY DIDN'T! OVER 3000 PATENTS & ONLY 2-3 WERE WORTH ANYTHING IN THAT SITUATION (YES-ONLY 2-3) FOR THEIR SUIT! EVERYONE BRAGGING ABOUT YAHOO HAVING OVER 3000 PATENTS AGAINST FB AROUND 100 OR LESS AT THE TIME!
MARK TURNED AROUND & GAVE YAHOO THE FINGER & SUED THEM! MANY ARE OLD & OF NO USE-MANY SHOULD NEVER OF BEEN ISSUED ETC ETC! THIS APPLIES TO ALL-ALL COMPANIES! I WOULD BE SURPRISED IF THEY GET 1 BILLION FOR ALL THEIR PATENTS BUT HOPE THEY DO!
4 new guys-are they still around & letting YAHOOS BOARD PLAY GAMES WITH THE BIDDERS! HAVE 10-20 BIDS SO THE BOARD CAN STAY LONGER & EAT UP ANOTHER 2 MILLION! NOT ENOUGH YET TO EQUAL ALMOST A YAHOO PARTY!
going -agree! why do they need three auctions! have two & make the bidders give firm reliable bids since they would KNOW NOT TO PLAY GAMES! what we have now is a bunch of game playing & it looks like yahoo is begging for better offers! the bidders know they have other opportunities so why show your hand now-just sit & watch & PLAY THE GAME! & confuse the whole situation! another yahoo board scre*w up!
going-it would be highway robbery if yahoos cash was included in vz bid.! the report didn't mention CASH! it indicated real estate & patents!
going-where did you hear third & final round???? what i read was AT "LEAST" ONE MORE! THREE SHOULD BE ENOUGH BUT YAHOOS BOARD ALWAYS DRAGS OUT EVERYTHING!
never- i don't know about his buys but its obvious counting the thumbs down that coldone should start using his toes! so far 12 against your comment (coldone makes money) & only 3 up! it looks like even his ghost left him! (only 3?)
never-i was hoping you would be right for once (yahoo over 40 today) but even the law of averages (o right over many wild forecasts) couldn't help you! i told you that you had a ZERO chance but you didn't remember-YAHOO HAS A TOTAL SLEEPING & DELAYING BOARD NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO!
going -hard to tell-valuation after the deal you will have to go to bed for a month & then wake up with yahoos sleeping board!
carguy- i gave you the up thumb to offset coldones 10 thumbs! he has a list of people that get the thumbs down without even reading the message! he had a positive comment (of course-by himself) & gave a thumbs down!
