They will make a low ball bid, the stock will drop on that bid, probably 20%. That will take all of the long option money off the table then over about 3 months it will be ultimately valued at what it is worth, which is about 45-50 per share. That is just the stock market, they spank everybody's butt early and often, you have to realize the market doesn't give you this much time to get in on a buyout deal. I was in on the first one, had 1500 shares, heard some guy say on TV that anyone that thought Microsoft was going to try and buy Yahoo was an idiot and deserved to lose their money, I sold 750 shares, the next morning I had made 7500 because the bid was 10 dollars above the closing price. Take it for what you will, not trying to do anything other than share my opinion.
Sooner or later that is, I am short, I think it is going back down with the rest of the frack pack, and I live here where they are operating, hope they make it.
Am I the only one that is wondering why, and extremely nervous I might add, that Yahoo is not trading better with the bids coming in a week? Where is the front running? I feel like a gold fish in a blender.
I agree, as long as Yahoo hasn't demanded that no one make a public offer without the board's consent. It is a public company so there is no law that says you couldn't but Yahoo's board has to be the most dysfunctional board of directors in silicon valley without a doubt. I think that PE firms will low ball the heck out of this but Verizon and Time will make good bids, especially Verizon, then let's hope we get a bidding war from BABA or even Softbank.
I would rather be the dumbest person on earth and go to heaven than be the smartest person on earth and go to hell, if I am wrong I have nothing to lose, if your wrong your going to burn in hell for eternity, now who is dumb?
It is not going up forever, about time for a BIG RED DAY, if 2000 doesn't hold look out below!!!
