It really depends on how far the investigation progressed. Unless, there were actual charges by a regulatory agency, I don't think Jack Ma or the officers had an obligation to disclose.
I don't think so. He's probably talking about the spin-off of BABA shares. A significant amount of cooperation was needed between YHOO and BABA to make it work.
A lot can happen between now and April. Write 100 calls at strike 48. This way you get a significant amount of your money back and you still have a bullish position. We're just going down because of BABA, nothing has really changed. BABA investigation will blow over quickly. The government loves Jack Ma, they're just going through the motions.
Unlikely, if I were holding them I would sell them and buy 2016 Leaps at 60. If MM is smart which she is, she will let additional information on the spin-off come slowly and in bits and pieces which would be great for YHOO shareholders, we'll get the upward momo going again.
Spin-off hasn't been completed yet. Normally, that means some investment bank or banks have opened escrow accounts to handle the paper-work. There's still time for new YHOO investors to get in on the spin-off. The exact price of the shares has yet to be determined, also we don't know if Spin-Co will be publicly traded.
....at a Higher Price. Way to go, MM.
It's still a man's world at the CEO level, I give MM a lot of credit for doing a good job with YHOO. The fact of the matter in order to become a CEO you need to be quite a strategist. She knows what YHOO is worth. Probably waiting for a bidder for YHOO core to show up before announcing details of tax plan.
Volume high for a Friday, probably some short-covering today. If we pop Monday pre-market that would indicate value investors getting in.
Looks like it's still in the beginning stages of making a deal, we probably won't hear anything new until after earnings.
It matters, many investors follow his approach. He's seldom wrong. However, Soros seldom goes public with his purchases unless he is required to. He doesn't want the price of YHOO to get jacked up before he's through buying.
With the recent downturn in the price of YHOO shares, George Soros is probably buying even more shares now.
MM is protected from a class action by the Business Judgment Rule...so no attorney would take this kind of case.
