Congratulations coldone. It´s great to see you after over 5 years finally seeing a possibility of profiting from your one and only real buy. Let’s hope you can muster up the courage to sell that one stock you own before you are permanently committed.
Highest Microsoft offer In 2008 was $33. Highest Microsoft offer In 2007 was $40.
The upgraded memberships fee is more of a deposit than a fee. The deposit/fee is returned if the member meets a certain sales target. Most do.
The free service Alibaba offers is very popular. US e-commerce is commission and ad driven, Alibaba e-commerce is only ad driven. Free transactions mean Alibaba gets just as much from 1 sale as 1 million sales, nothing. Alibaba has the business but not the revenue. Alibaba gets less from sales in a year than eBay in a day. Free has its drawbacks.
You have broken coldone´s record for the highest purchase price of Yahoo by anyone in the world over the last 5 and a half years. Now also you can start posting fake buys and telling everyone to buy until you get your money back.
Actually the Financial Times is reporting that unnamed sources are saying that Alibaba is prepared to scrap plans and…… A subtle but important difference.
The downside is how prone to being wrong people familiar with the talks tend to be. People familiar with the talks have in the past informed us of multiple buyouts, mergers, at least 5 sales of Yahoo Japan and dozens of deals that would knock your socks off. Usually people familiar with the talks are just bored columnists needing to fill a page.
Selected paragraphs from the Financial Times 4 hours ago. Very interesting to see what he doesn´t post.
Yes, shares repurchased can be considered treasury stock. They then carry no voting rights, pay no dividends, are not compensated on buyout or liquidation, give no shareholder rights, are not listed as assets and do not count in the outstanding shares count. Basically shares with no value or standing available for re-issuance.
After trying to sell Yahoo Japan for over 2 years without so much as anybody showing any interest that´s the best you can come up with?
And btw Yahoo can´t own Yahoo stock. All the Yahoo stock that Yahoo buys gets automatically retired, ceases to exist.
Since coldone has only posted buy recommendations the 5+ years he has been waiting for a profit on his first and only real buy in the $28s and Yahoo is under $28 he can hardly be considered anything other than a fool. Real traders make money when Yahoo is moving, be it up or down. Fools sit and wait pumping like idiots, forever waiting for a profit on a bad buy.
Apple needs a search engine and Yahoo uses the Microsoft Bing search engine.
Apple needs Microsoft? There is no Yahoo search engine.
While real traders were busy making money these last 5+ years coldone made aliases and posted hundreds of fake buys waiting for a profit.
Does it say on page 58 of 97 that shows Alibaba transactional volume compared to Amazon and Ebay how much Alibaba is making on its free transactions compared to Amazon´s and Ebay´s paid transactions?
Free is always popular but do the 25% higher free transactions give 25% more than all the paid for transactions at Amazon and Ebay?
