I agree. Yahoo fell down on the job and let these worthless sleazeball stock market letter promoters take over all of its message boards. Yahoo needs to do something - either get sold or try something new.
HSY Trustees can't just hide their heads in the sand and say "no" to every merger that is offered. This company needs to be revitalized. As a majority stakeholder with absolute veto power, the Trust has a fiduciary duty to the other stockholders. If the trustees blow any and all deals off, there's going to be a suit.
If they blow this deal, there's going to be a class action suit that will be brought not only against the board, but also against the trustees of the trust. Breach of fiduciary duty sounds like a viable claim.
