    "Then we have 16.3% of Alibaba. What’s that going to be worth post-IPO? My guess is that Alibaba will trade up to $90/share or a market cap of $215 billion. That means Yahoo’s remaining stake would be worth $35 billion assuming Yahoo avoids taxes on that stake (which I think is highly likely when they dispose of the stake a year from now in Hong Kong and keep the money overseas to borrow against). If you assume Yahoo pays full taxes on that stake (which they won’t), it’s worth $23B.

    But Yahoo’s not going to sell its stake right away. They’re going to keep it for another year. What’s it going to be worth then? No one knows for sure but my modelling suggests Alibaba will be trading around $111/share a year from now or $275 billion. If true, the Yahoo stake will be worth $45 billion untaxed (which I think is the correct way to think about what will happen when they liquidate their stake in the jurisdiction of Hong Kong).

    So you have in Yahoo’s stock a collection of assets where the Alibaba stake would be worth $45 billion in a year from now and everything else would be worth $26 billion. Combined that’s $71 billion in assets potentially — or about $71/share."

    This Forbes article is makes strong yahoo valuation case.

    Yahoo! Inc. (YHOO) may rise 65 percent by the end of the year after Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. goes public later this week, according to bets by structured-products buyers.

    Investors are piling into call warrant and knock-out certificates that pay a return if Yahoo’s share price climbs above a pre-defined level. Some are betting Yahoo will increase to as much as $70 by Dec. 29, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The stock rose to an eight-year high of $42.88 last week and closed at $42.71 yesterday in New York.

    “At the moment, Yahoo is one of the most common U.S.-based underlyings trading in Germany,” said Heiko Geiger, the Frankfurt-based head of public distribution of structured products for Germany and Austria at Bank Vontobel Europe AG. “We hadn’t seen it for months.”

    The commander of a Ukrainian national guard unit in the area near Novoazovsk where the fighting was reported to be happening told Reuters by telephone: "A war has broken out here." He said he could not speak and ended the conversation.

    Semen Semenchenko, commander of the pro-government Azov militia, said on his Facebook page that around 50 armored vehicles had crossed the border from Russia.

    About 40 of them were trying to move in the direction of Mariupol while the remainder were moving north towards Amvrosiyivka, he said.

    "The invasion of the Russian occupiers is taking place"

    Looks like Russia army now engaging much more directly with Ukraine

    Antisocial personality disorder is a type of chronic mental condition in which a person's ways of thinking, perceiving situations and relating to others are dysfunctional — and destructive. People with antisocial personality disorder typically have no regard for right and wrong and often disregard the rights, wishes and feelings of others.

    Those with antisocial personality disorder tend to antagonize, manipulate or treat others either harshly or with callous indifference. They may often violate the law, landing in frequent trouble, yet they show no guilt or remorse. They may lie, behave violently or impulsively, and have problems with drug and alcohol use. These characteristics typically make people with antisocial personality disorder unable to fulfill responsibilities related to family, work or school.

  • NATO reports that Russian forces have moved artillery units into Ukraine and begun using them to fire and Ukrainian forces, furthering concerns about World War 3 and ratcheting up the pressure in what is already a tense situation. The New York Times reports that this is the first evidence the West has had that Russia is directly supporting the rebel forces in Ukraine, although it has been suspected for some time
