dividend should be announced with this quarter earnings. there is no reason to sit on cash. give the employees a raise and send a bit on to the shareholders.
so do you think they will share with the public the buyout offers on Monday. If not, and if offers are weak, was today the last day to get out. just wondering.
good post. that is why the share price is not moving dramatically. not everybody agrees that buyout is a sure bet. and, truth is that you are probably correct. if it was sure bet, the price would already be at 50
nice attempt by the buyers to tamp down price with their "sources" telling re-code that the finances were messy. re-code is a tool. got to kick the tires, make sure the seller is off-center before you make your offer. Anybody who has sold or traded in a car to a car lot knows how it works.
Yahoo would get more eyes on these boards if they could figure out a way to get rid of the trolls. Trolls have totally destroyed the message board for YHOO stock. I own it, but going to the message board for YHOO is almost entirely worthless. My guess is yahoo thinks the controversy raised by these guys causes more posts, hence more eyes. I think they are wrong. Many serious readers simply stop looking.
I think you are wrong. IF IT IS taxed at the time of transfer, the taxable income to yahoo is the difference between yahoo's basis and the value at the time of transfer to spinco. Hopefully it won't be taxed.
