wow this stock is definetly NOT boring
If the BRI is gone it means VHC patents are 100 percent good and risk is almost completely gone because every court has affirmed VHC patents under plain and ordinary meaning...so if the BRI standard is gone VHC patents have a lot less risk...so I would have preferred the BRI standard be gone.
I agree that is more simple...but say the no one thinks that a deal will go through like that for regulators etc...I see this is the best outcome
Then Yahoo has 100 million in BABA shares worth 9 billion, YJ stake worh 9 billion, Core with 9 billion (estimate) and 27 billion in cash...or 57 per share
So Yahoo can issued preferred shares to Alibaba for say 20 billion. Then BABA says to Yahoo hey lets swap shares...284 million shares in Hong Kong for our Yahoo preferred shares....Then upon completion of the swap they both cancel shares....boom and done
No, say Yahoo doesnt want to be bought by a china company...but let say BABA invest or aquires a 30 billion stake in Yahoo and YHOO isssues say prefered shares or something...once YHOO has the 30 billion in cash can they then cancel those prefered shares or trades their investment in Yahoo for our investment in BABA
I think we were talking about this last night with somone else with regards to softbank...Can BABA buy a stake equal to the amount of BABA stake and then Yahoo gives back their share or BABA cancels those BABA shares? Then Yahoo cancels the newly minted YHOO shares? Would that be tax free?
Yea they could do one pretty quick...BABA can buy groupon for 4 billion with BABA shares then offer YHOO 20 billion in cash and GRPN for 384 million shares...then YHOO has 27 billion in cash, Yahoo and YJ with core and YJ and newly minted GRPN the companies "core" plus YJ should be around 20 billion which is $47 billion or 50 per share...
I hope so! Im getting tired of owning yhoo
Softbank stake is now actually 29 percent and NOT 28 percent
