Pls. give him a chance. Like I said, his position is very untenable. No one like to be disliked all the time and that is what is doing to himself. I really hope he takes my advise.
You are definitely a coldumb alias.
He's a real test of your knowledge. What do Yahoo give up if Alibaba doesn't go public by December 2015. Let's see if you get this correct Coldumb. I bet you won't answer. or You will answer something like, "it's there look up" bullsehet.
This does not take into account the Yahoo Japan asset as the $23 figure mentioned is for Alibaba at $150B IPO valuation. Add $7 for the Japan asset, and you get $52 minimum. I agree with the DCF calculations.
that is $4 billion annual revenue. If $9.99 that's $8 Billion! Beats WhatsApp who charges $1. No brainer.
WhatsApp charges $1 and users don't even make money using it. I make a ton of money using Yahoo Finance. It should really charge a subscription fee plus show the ads. Conservatively 800 million users worldwide multiply by say $5 = $4 billion annual revenue.
I would rather see coldone_is_a_total clown posts than coldumb. Coldumb and his aliases polluted this board and that is why you have coldone_is_a_total clown, which is the only way to counteract coldumb and his aliases. Keep doing it coldone_is_a_total_clown.
I'm oblivious to the banner ads. I don't mind them even if I pay $9.99.
pls. take a second to email investor relations. Just search "Yahoo Investor Relations Contact" and click on the result, the form pops up.
Here is my email to invest relations:
Hello Ms. Mayer! First, let me thank you for working very hard to make Yahoo! very relevant in our daily lives. Ms. Mayer, I have made a lot of money in my investments using Yahoo Finance. In fact, I was able to retire at the age of 54 3 years ago because of Yahoo! helping in my trading. Pls. consider what is I'm about to recommend as I believe it is a no brainer. Pls. charge a subscription for using Yahoo Finance. I would gladly pay $9.99 a year or more to use this invaluable tool. There is no substitute to Yahoo Finance! Your reply would be greatly appreciated. (Disclosure: I'm a Yahoo investor since 2008). Best Regards.
