I will sell half of my shares before the IPO. Probably the week before leading up to it depending on how high the stock goes. Then I'll let the rest ride cause I have nothing to lose to capitalize on further movement upwards and depending on how well yahoo improves its core business. I have faith that Marissa will begin to turn the core business around come Q1 2014 that could propel the stock even further when they stop the bleeding and begin on monetizing Tumbler and other sites. Just remember where Google was 10 years ago.
I agree with bourn except I would probably sell off the week prior depending on how much it runs up. I plan on selling at least 1/3 of my shares prior to the IPO, then let the rest ride. Any guesses on what the runup price will be? I predict at least 45-50.
I'm not bashing and am a long term holder with an average PPS of about 46 so I'm in the money. I've been telling others that with the DRIP, and no price movement, with the 5% discount, that equates to about a 12% annual dividend. People often don't mention the DRIP discount. I'm happy with the stock , and it is a good sign as long as the PPS increases as well as the dividend. I'm just not used to these puny increases but looks like they are on par with the other MLPs.
Yes it is a good sign that they actually raised it but really? Are people happy with a measily 1.23% increase in dividend?
Yeah, it's kind of funny you were telling everyone to sell at 10 bucks 6 months ago. And now your about to lose yet another dividend payment and a 10% increase in PPS. Any other advice?
Let's face it, the internet/social media stock have run up enormously in the last couple of months and are now getting slammed with a "correction". The market is using this opportunity to take some profits which is always a good idea but also will promote the next runnup to new highs. Not too worried. It's about the fundamentals
Nuff said. I called it. I bought more on the 10% dip from the iradio fears and already have made an 11% gain in less than a month. Lesson learned, by when there is fear. I believe Warren Buffet said that.
One of the few internet plays with a PE at 9 and change! Alibaba stake is about 25 billion. I see yahoo at 60 by next year. 90 by end of 2015. And it STILL will only be valued less than 1/3 google and less than facebook. Mayer's plan will start to implement Q1 of next year. Party on Garth!
I'm not sure what everyone is whining about. even with no gain in the PPS, you get a 7% dividend and if you DRIP another 5% on top of that assuming no price movement, that is a 12% annual gain. I'd rather have my money here than a money market fund.
Typical. The 10% plunge was overdone.
Yes we know that Apple's iradio is coming, now sit back and watch Pandora reach new highs. Pundits like you have missed out on a great run. Too bad......
The pundits like you've been screaming failure for years now only to see Pandora hit new highs. Apple will have a different market and platform. Apple is late to the market and is slowing on the innovation. I have a feelin your one of those who are holding the Apple bag at 700 per share. Pandora will become more relevant in coming months with the new CEO. Thank you for your concern.
Great I'll buy more and add to my positions. Jade, you've lost credibility. You've missed out on tremendous gains telling people to sell at 10 bucks. Nuff said.

Jade the fact that you cannot respond to my initial post and try to divert the attention to an old post of mine makes me chuckle and supports that you no arguement in return. You cannot admit your wrong doing and therefore, your posts are here for entertainment. I find you very amusing.
