Best strategy for you is to exit with pride and try to get that huge severance pay package like what you did for the last three years and half with your lousy job performance as CEO of YHOO. Don't try to manipulate the market of trying to convince the shareholders once again that you have a turnaround plan even though you said that 3 1/2 years ago and every year thereafter. Enough is enough MM,you are out and the shareholders want you O-U-T. You got that!
I think this is smart strategy on VZ to make a deal now than later. However with Mr. Quartrong advising YHOO, I think YHOO shareholders are in good hands. My take is that if they can get a deal with VZ, it will be open deal meaning, YHOO will have the opportunity to listen or hear other offers.
Sorry mad, the way I understood what Mr. McAdams said is that, "marrying up some of their assets with AOL" is to me VZ would like to make a deal and it is up to YHOO if they will entertain their offer.
MM and Maynard are afraid to lose their milking of YHOO especially YHOO having $6B cash in the bank. MM is avoiding the direct question of why she should lead the buyout deal because she is the CEO.
Kara S during interview with CNBC today, Kara thinks that MM doesn't want to sell YHOO and MM is making many alibis about the idea of selling YHOO. Kara also said MM' turnaround plan would not work.
During Mad Money today VZ CEO reiterates VZ interest to acquire YHOO core. I think VZ and YHOO will have a negotiation talk this weekend.
Don't forget to vote your shares. Make sure you don't vote Maynard and Marissa Mayer first and foremost.
Hotmodel is back shorting YHOO again. She never learned; I think it is coming to her surprise big time T-0-S-A-T , shorting account zilch yeah baby.
The main jest of his open letter to issue Class B shares for Alibaba stakes tax free. I see a lot positives to his letter to YHOO assets and intrinsic value. I am sure but I like his idea big time.
I think a Pension Fund is suing YHOO for outrageous termination payment to the former COO who did a super lousy job. I think he just work for less than a year with he got a get severance separation of about $100M, just unbelievable. He is a buddy of MM at google. Yeah I think next will be MM pay package including exorbitant stock options.
Shorts are getting scared big time. They don't like "surprise toasting" meaning finding their shorts account at zilch.
