    A Yahoo executive Business Insider met with recently shared some interesting speculation.

    This executive thinks that Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer wants to sell the company.

    This source pointed out that such a sale would allow Mayer to exit the troubled company a victor — having tripled Yahoo's stock price since July 2012.

    She would be able to say, proudly, that she was hired into Yahoo to save the company as a software engineer, but ultimately realized her real bosses were Yahoo shareholders — to whom she returned billions of dollars in capital and provided huge returns.

    We were hesitant to share this speculation because it should be taken with a huge grain of salt!

    It is just one source's musing, albeit one based on personal interaction with the CEO.

    Mayer has given no public indication that she is running Yahoo with anything but long-term goals in mind.

    Mayer would not be crazy to want out.

    The company's core business, display advertising, has shrunk for the past four quarters. Yahoo is trying to recapture those revenues with a growing mobile and video advertising products, but that's not happening fast enough to prevent overall revenues from declining.

    Yahoo's homepage traffic is cratering.

    Over the weekend, Keach Hagey and Douglas MacMillan of The Wall Street Journal reported that traffic to Yahoo's homepage was down 31% in March 2015 versus March 2014.

    Under Mayer — and prior CEOs — Yahoo has positioned itself not as a producer of content, but as a place that distributes content for other partners.

    A quickly shrinking homepage erodes Yahoo ability to do that. It erodes Yahoo's ability to do much at all, really.

    You can't blame the trend on Mayer. She's been unable to reverse it, but it started long before her arrival. Why wouldn't she take a chance to walk away from Yahoo a huge winner?

    The last time Yahoo was on the block, in 2011, it had many private equity suitors — including TPG, Silver Lake, and a group led by former News Corp CO

    I gathered if the stock price goes down to a certain price entry they will start to buy, in few words the lower it goes and the more cash will be saved on the buy back.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    FOR THE NEW FCAU INVESTORS Details about Ferrari spin-off
    Fiat Chrysler set to spin the Ferrari brand off into a separate, independent company.

    Ferrari might be the car all people — even the strident non-gearheads — would love to be able to take out for a spin. Executives at the Italian automaker will be taking their company out for a spin this year, as Fiat Chrysler is spinning the brand off into an independent company.

    Ferrari will also IPO, with a 10% stake in the company hitting the markets. The remaining 90% will be distributed among FCAU shareholders, according to Reuters. Ferrari will likely list in both New York and on a European exchange. The spinoff and IPO is part of Fiat Chrysler’s attempt to grow by 48-billion euro ($61 billion). “As we move forward to secure the 2014-2018 Business Plan and work toward maximizing the value of our businesses to our shareholders, it is proper that we pursue separate paths for FCA and Ferrari,” FCA Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne said in a statement.

    Marchionne also told analysts on a conference call Wednesday he had no plans to increase the float in Ferrari beyond the planned 10%. He also said Fiat Chrysler has no intention to list stakes in Maserati, Alfa Romeo or any other of its brands.

    Marchionne, who took over as the chairman of Ferrari earlier this month, added that he would keep his role at the luxury unit even after spinning it off from the group.
