    Should Alibaba preemptively buy Yahoo?

    by myprofile96 Jun 12, 2014 1:25 PM
    caminocasa07 caminocasa07 Jun 12, 2014 3:26 PM Flag

    Yes!
    Here is a suggested plan to implement your idea::

    Have Stock price pegged right now at $48.00 perhaps $50 for Alibaba offering

    As part of the Alibaba offering--- all Yahoo shareholders would receive
    1 Alibaba share for 1 Yahoo share.
    Alibaba does not have to come up with any cash to acquire Yahoo.

    Yahoo would be a wholly owned subsidiary of Alibaba.

    Yahoo shareholders have something worth $48.00 - $50 right
    at the closing of the offering---still huge upside from there
    (better IMHO to own Alibaba after the offering than Yahoo)

    Existing stock (the 22.6% of Alibaba owned by Yahoo-
    would of course now be owned by Alibaba, as would
    the stock in Yahoo Japan currently held by Yahoo.
    These shares would come out of the Yahoo subsidiary and
    moved up to the Alibaba parent company---(Alibaba could
    retire the 22.6% Alibaba stake formerly held by Yahoo.

    Several days perhaps --not several quarters IMHO--

    Do not disagree, however, remember the great scene from "Trading Places"---
    Winthorpe trying to pawn his expensive watch---The owner of the Pawn Shop
    tells Winthorpe in no uncertain terms---"In Philadelphia its worth 50 bucks!"---
    Reality sets in---
    Right now Wednesday June 11th 11:04 AM Yahoo on NASDQ --is worth 36 bucks and 58 cents---

    Headlines has good article on the issue under discussion---(see first article under Headlines)
    Although you may not get a response to your letter , it is quite likely your letter will "register"

    In the investment arena perception is pretty close to reality---management has not
    done a great job of explaining why they are challenging the SEC while at the
    same time saying the SEC position is positive for investors---IMHO a good question!

    caminocasa07 caminocasa07 Jun 7, 2014 3:01 PM Flag

    Thanks good summary
    I assume your $60 # comes from adding to the $45
    $9.00 for yahoo japan
    $6.00 for core Yahoo (which would not include any
    contribution from Alibaba and Yahoo Japan
    We do not want to double count)----

    For what its worth ---and its not worth much--here is what was going through
    (what is left of) my mind when I made my first foray into the option arena --
    (could be my first and last depending on what happens:)

    (1) 10 calls November SRPT $30---paid $7.03 total of approx $7,000
    These were the only calls of that description traded today.--I may have overpaid by $1,000?
    At the time the stock was trading @ $33 +/-
    (2) could have bought 1,000 shares of stock tying up $33,000--Would be up up a point
    but would have involved more risk---
    (3) Iigured the most I could lose was $7k
    (4) figured if the stock were to move up to $38 (the recent offering price where presumably
    a lot of smart people including the underwriters thought was reasonable at the time)--
    the calls would go to at least $8.00 and probably trade at $10.00??---.
    (5) If $10 were the "right projected number" under this hypothetical scenario,
    (and there is probably a lot of complicated math involved in this determination which
    I do not know how to do)--in any event Ithis would involve a 42% profit on the investment
    of $7,000.00---(3/7)
    (6) Assuming the same scenario had I bought 1000 shares of the stock at $33 a 7 point move
    to $40 works out to a 21% profit
    (7) If some major surge were to take place in the next 2-3 months to $48?? (dream on),
    then percentage return and actual $$ return would be quite high on a relatively small investment---

    I am probably missing something---and if I am any thoughts on this once again appreciated--
    (I promise I won't be like Detective Columbo and come back with more questions).
    Thank you again and GLTA

    Forgot to mention strike price $30.00

  • caminocasa07 by caminocasa07 Jun 5, 2014 10:04 AM Flag

    Would be interested in opinion(s) concerning something I just did and
    whether or not it was a good idea?---Although involved in the financial markets
    for a long long time (too long according to some people I know), have very
    little experience with options---in any event just bought :
    10 calls SRPT November 22, 1014 @ $7.03 --Total $$ $7,049
    Seems like a good idea--leveraged with not tying up $33,000+ at this time?
    Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated.

    I agree---percentage probably higher than that--Probably not so easy to fix---Good thing
    there is an ignore procedure.---
