what is really disturbing about this is the level of incompetence as to how it has been managed in Texas to date. Unfortunately, what should have been an isolated case could well turn into an outbreak.
seeing as today's stock price is around what you might have expected to pay for an at the money call option six months ago...why not just buy the stock here (if you're a gambler that is, which most options players are, after all)?
you may wish to check your 19 bil number...are you sure it wasn't 1.9 billion? But whatever they paid was stupid money.
point is companies like Yahoo & Facebook are paying way over the top for internet bolt-on's that have zero shelf life.
no, that would result in a considerable dilution of outstanding equity and would be a financial disaster considering they just went public here in the US. If your solutions were that simple don't you think they'd already be in the works by now?
they might...but that would be money poorly invested when they can simply sit back and do nothing for the foreseeable future?
certainly not for their search. They might consider buying a piece to capture an interest in Yahoo Japan which really does have great "search". But the fact is the domestic property is pretty much worthless...and getting more so IMO.
blaming Obama for its demise is just plain silly. Fact is coal is one of the dirtiest forms of energy, and as a consequence is one of the planet's biggest polluters. And there is no disputing these facts.
I agree, the Finance Page retains its integrity...but what remains explains why investors have abandoned this internet giant and value the core business close to zero. Search is pathetic when compared to Google...consecutive CEO's have labored to make Yahoo viable...mostly by adding small bolt-on's that really are proving to be a complete waste of time and money.
now it's just a run of the mill forum for garbage content and almost as bad as the National Enquirer tabloid.
he was clearly squirming on Fast Money. Sorry, Najarian...but you're on tape.
I suspect you complainers are all johnny-come-lately investors and wet behind the ears.
actually it is you who makes me laugh. Your vision is so clouded by your personal politics...that you can't see what is right in front of you.
the SEC is really quite useless when it comes to the daily governance of the US stock markets.
boycott CNBC & contact their advertisers...it's the only way to end the criminal misconduct being perpetrated by the likes of Cramer & the Najarian Bros. Might wish to contact your senator too...if they're not already in Wall Street's pocket.
