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!
willie thanks for nothing! you are in the same boat of analyst that felt numerous stocks had various future highs when consistently dropping! your guess is as good as my 6 yr old grandchild! maybe hers would be better!
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!
rdrunner- how does pebble 11x know that V & AT&T UPPED THEIR BIDS SUBSTANTIALLY???? HE IS A MEMBER OF THEIR BOARD & ALSO A MEMBER FOR APPLE -BABA-SOFTBANK-MICROSOFT ETC.ETC.ETC! he only gives out info during their black-outs & is very discreet- so don't tell anyone!
ray-shareholders again-again-again-might be shocked if they knew his exit fee! just look at his total options etc how long has he been with them? add it to all the other shocking-shocking fees/acquisition wasted cost/ program wasted cost & attorney-attorneys-atorneysssss & the cost of spin-off that is still spinning nowhere! TOTAL OF ALL THIS WASTED COST WILL BLOW THE HEAD OFF THE SHAREHOLDERS SHOULDERS!
mrjo- i agree that yahoo has never surprised with anything positive! even when an acquisition or program got rave review later it was a dud! my concerns are -how bad is bad for the 2nd quarter report that bidders are probably concerned it will be worst than expected! also-how much of a discount will be necessary to dump the assets shares. in addition- mm stated things are getting better & that statement makes me more concerned than ever after hearing her make that comment for 4 yrs & PRODUCE NOTHING -NOTHING -NOTHING & MORE OF NOTHING!
gpen-agre with big things next week! just like last week & all the weeks before that & that & that & that!
pebble 16x- 1 billion buyout of Mozilla? finally got a buyout from the board! 1 billion here & i billion there makes more billions coming out of no where! i've mentioned many-many times that if the shareholders really knew all the wasted expenses (just in the last 2 yrs.) it would cost 3 billion to pay for their heart attacks! yahoo has enormous cost of the never leaving expert firms who keep tripping over each other! i guess their board has no expertise so others must have to handle EVERY PAST SITUATION-EVERY PAST SITUATION!
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!
pebble 16x if-twtr & yhoo joined up? really no different than ups & federal express! they now call themselves FED-UP
irene-if no sale the vote would be 80 % against? MAYBE- but remember these are the same institutional mgrs that voting for them with no revenue or profits for 4 yrs.!
Pebble 16x-his opinion was "not" but if they would of stated " could two negative companies put together end up a plus"? yes-if both boards were removed!
yhoo hides all their wasted expenses but its surfacing now! the board needs to explain to stockholders how they could pay someone with no ceo experience 3-5 times the normal rate & the mgt. get increases when no profits & revenue are increases! also they need to explain what the connections are when recommending new members prior to the new 4 members!
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!
going-board needs month to make final decision#$%$! my personal opinion- the work is probably being done by numerous companies with expert personnel & the cost will be substantial-thank you shareholders! the bottom line will be handed to the board detailing everything! now=if the entire board could find time to present themself (vac.weddings-etc-etc. etc!) & read the results it shouldn't take that long! their not looking at 25 cos. & already must have indications to separate bids so why so long? what has yahoo done for shareholders in the last 4 yrs. that happened above expectations!
sdj4047-mm has f'd up everything she touched? don't forget the board hired her & approved everything she has done (including her pay scale) & watched with approval afterwards when it was a disaster! the rest of yahoos board were being paid for doing NOTHING & KILLING THE COMPANY!
going-in feb. she said moving expeditiously??? funny-when the board hired her (4 yrs ago) they knew there was a very good chance yahoo might have to be sold. ( after many ceo failures) also prior to the hiring they knew yahoo might have to be sold! lets say after 10 yrs. yahoos crane is moving faster than a race car if you believe yahoos board! also- the only thing that is moving light lightning is yahoos expense (thank you shareholders)! i hope all the experts hired ( like the wasted millions on spin-off) don't keep tripping over each other!
