    Basically AAPL is an one-trick pony. Another phone company.

    There is a lot of downside on IBM. What happened today is just the tip of the iceberg. Rometty is lying on how bad IBM is. They even lied to Warren Buffett.

    Based on the current price, BX is returning 7-8% in dividend. I would actually encourage them to consider buying the stock. Some of hedgies are using it as a proxy. With less float, there will be less volitality.

    DOW drops over 300 points yesterday, YHOO hardly moves only down 2 cents. Today, it is down a buck. Go figure. This is the reason why I am sitting on the sidelines. The overall market is choppy. We will see more bad days like yesterday this month. Until we have some predictable base, we will continue to experience downward pressure.

    Question to the this Yahoo board

    Whatever it is. Snapchat has no revenue. So the return on investment will not be seen for years. Another destruction of cash play to me.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • We make the decisions based on what information is available today. Based on what I see, Marissa has no direction for this company, other than going out there buying something that gives her another year of failure. At this point, before she spends a dime, all strategic alternatives need to be looked at, including spinning the rest of BABA investment and Yahoo Japan into a separate investment company and keeping YHOO's core business. Only until then, should Marissa be allowed to make any investment decisions. She has, is and will continue to destroy shareholder equity with her stupid decisions.

    She pick up the phone and have a conversation with BABA and SBNKF as well--if she is interested in increasing the shareholder value.

    Done for now....will monitor to see what develops next.

    p.s. Also, YHOO is developing a lower high pattern. This can be bad in the short-term.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    It is coming. SFTBF has not business buying DWA. They don't even understand how to run these companies. Buying YHOO is the best option.

    Then why did they allow a Chinese company go forward with the biggest IPO in history?
    YHOO is no longer a security risk for US.

    Today's announcement was nothing more than a wake call. A YHOO/AOL tie-up does nothing for either company. Both of them are have-been companies. Neither will survive alone. However, if YHOO/AOL tie-up happens, Alibaba's and softbank's job gets that much harder. In order to get access to the ALIBABA shares locked up at YHOO, they need to spend a lot more money that they would have buying YHOO outright today.

    Next week we will see some new revelations. Hopefully, Alibaba comes to their conclusion quickly and #$%$-up YHOO at basement bargain prices. Either way time is running out for a good deal.

    It is simply crazy to short YHOO at this level. It is sitting at near cash value. Why would you ever think that it will see 90c on the dollar. It does not make sense. At this point, the smart bet is on the buy side. One telling aspect of that.....the hedgies started making noise that YHOO is undervalued. My suggestion for you is to sover your short position. You made your money already.

    Bulls make money, brears make money, but pigs get slaughtered. Watch out.

    I think there is some nervousness in the market. They are having very difficult time balancing the order book and opening BABA for trading. If that happens, there will be a lot of issues. I cannot believe that NYSE would actually set the opening day for BABA on the options expiration date. This can cost NYSE big. They'd batter get their act together in a hurry.

    It is everything else. You gotta wait for the numbers to come out than it is off to the race. This is the same thing as a stock popping once they report an earnings surprise. Just wait and do not panic.

    Tax efficiency and share of BABA are cited as the reasons.

    VOLUME is puzzling?

    That's because the sellers of YHOO this morning were exactly the same people buying it back. Whenever there is a known in the market and the variables are understood, that gives the traders a lot of comfort level to trade the stock, knowing that they can also time and predict the close. This is the oldest game on Wall Street.

    All day today brokers made money trading the stock. We are targeting zero for the close.

    When will Brokers close the pre-IPO books

    I don't think what happened FB will happen to BABA. This is the main reason why they went with NYSE. What happens on the NYSE situation is that the brokers will own the stock based on their allocation and will mark it to their customers. They have to buy the shares after the close tomorrow. So the money comes of customer's trading account. The brokers right now are making sure that those who got allocated the stock have the money in their account to buy. Some may have access to margin. By Friday morning, if all the stock is sold by the brokers, all trading will happen on the floor. If not, the brokers have the option of selling it out of the house account. Frankly I am expecting the trading to be orderly.

    The final price will be announced at the close of trading day tomorrow (Thursday). The trading this week is meaningless because people are looking for the opening bid on Friday. Keep in mind that the reason BABA will open higher is because the demand is higher than what is being off offered. Until Friday morning, at the opening, it will be fairly muted. CBOE opens an hour earlier on Friday. The pricing of the options will indicate where YHOO will open. I do realize it is difficult to wait and see, bu it is always like this. When cat's away, mice play!!!!

    The two do not compare at all. YHOO retains a large part of the share of BABA. YHOO has additional significant assets YHOO-Japan, CASH and a functioning solution that is still delivering a lot of free cash flow. Most importantly, it is a big take-over candidate. Any weakness will bring out the buyers. MSFT is still interesting in YHOO. YHOO does not want to use BING as a search engine. This bothers MSFT a lot. So do not plan on the same thing that happened to 3Com to happen to YHOO. Some adjustment will likely to happen, but not before until at least BABA is in the market for at least 30-45 days.
