    Yahoo is moving solely on the basis of the baba IPO. Softbank is a real company with varied interests. Also, softbank is NOT selling their position in baba so you will not see a drastic pop at the IPO. I do expect some if the IPO is well received. Softbank is a better long term play than Yahoo in my book. Baba will also be very interesting. I think over 12 months it shows very nice gains.

    Reasonable analysis. Softbank should absolutely be worth more even by virtue of the fact that their baba position can now be monetized. Also, and what many seem to be overlooking, is that softbank is a pretty decent company in its own right. Yahoo is valued almost strictly on its baba position and will need to reinvent itself. I think going forward you will see more partnerships between baba and softbank and that softbank's own business will continue to have value. Maybe not a moon shot that will quadruple overnight but a stock that will double in the next 12-18 months and grow reasonably well for many years. I already own it (3000 shares) in both my regular and IRA accounts.
