fred- since you love polyvore & we never get SALES & PROFITS FROM OUR CEO OR BOARD (we all know why-most NONE) CAN YOU FILL US IN? you might be right about loving the company but the investment community loves revenue & mainly profits! & all past acquisitions were loved by many except when quarterly reports were announced!
poker-i mentioned 1000 times that she didn't know what she was doing from day 1! also i stated to many times that she was put in that position to get the house COMPLETELY IN ORDER IMMEDIATELY / preserve cash or use it ONLY when it would INCREASE revenue & profits NOW (or within reason) which would add to the value of yhoo- if sold in the near term! NOT 10 YEARS FROM NOW! instead she threw out money ( like playing with a dart board) hoping for the best & if not- throw some more darts in another game since we will be getting more money to play with soon! SHE WAS THE TOTAL OPPOSITE OF WHAT A TAKEOVER EXPERT WOULD OF DONE! of course Coldone & Going always felt differently about her & probably still do & i'm fine with that since being very uncomfortible with her i played the game with very very little option value!
apple-mm doing any runway shows to help the stock price? personally i feel there are over 200 female employees at yhoo better equipt for that purpose!
A-_ only-only-only because of its assets! yhoos mgt. Is entirely useless but if mm was a stock & we could of investeed in her personal results we would of made a fortune since her assets went thru the roof! she is a very tireless worker & her sales of her free options show it-always pressing the sales buttons!
rscn- paying a div? yhoo can't even show better results when buying back millions of shares! they better keep all the money they can since paying out more money in dividends won't help the bottom line which continues to worsen every time another quarterly report is out!
fj-check it out in 10 yrs. from now those start ups mm bought for your QUESTION-"WHERE IS THE TALENT" ITS REALLY WEIRD THAT YOUR QUESTION IS THE SAME ONE THE BOARD SHOULD BE ASKING HER -BUT WITH THIS BOARD THEY PROBABLY DON'T KNOW SHE BOUGHT THEM!
going-they wouldn't of paid her a fortune just to sell the company! THE INTENT WAS TO PRODUCE INCREASES IN REVENUE & PROFITS THAT WOULD MAKE YHOO" VERY" ATTRACTIVE FOR A POTENTIAL BUYER! they were sure by now the results would speak for themself & they do! there were many experts available that have sold many cos. & did so with outstanding results at 10%-15% of her salary & possiblydone so by now!
coldone-your statement "added more yhoo at $37.49" is nice to hear since ( looking at the price ) we need all the buyers we can get! BUT-BUT-BUT THIS REPEATED STATEMENT DOESN'T INDICATE IF YOU BOUGHT ONE SHARE OR 10000! you statement might be totally honest but worthless if its value means nothing!
porgy- you keeep talking about coldones winning trades! & others that bash him are squirming! DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU MAKE MONEY WHEN THE STOCK GOES UP- UNLESS YOU ARE SHORTING or did someone give you misleading info.?
coldone -glad you & your army are buying but the problem is nobody knows how big your (so called ) army is! is it 1-3/4-10/10/1000? anyways -a lot of days you buy & the stock goes down! pls. get a bigger ( so called) army!
refus-- karl is right when he indicated BLAME THE BOARD! for the out of this world sum that this board gave a trainee (that didn't even have the expertise needed for the job) how could anyone blame someone taking the money! i would take it if it was for a brain surgeon position- eventhou i had no experience whatsoever! after the contract was signed- i would admit my only experience was on people already in the cemetary! to be fair- i would let them experience on me & they would have to promise "NO LAUGHING" DURING SURGEORY WHEN THEY COULDN'T FIND ONE!
ud- under bush many lost their home,,couldn't get a loan,couldn't sell their home,contractors became a dying breed & he created an economy that was the 2 or 3rd worst in HISTORY! also- pls. go help him find all those nuclear weapons that our soldiers died for that never were found! & history states never existed!
toby- get serious! go back & see when she 1st. started & it's easy to realized that she thought she was mr. Z which was a total joke! instead she was mrs. "NR" FOR NO RESULTS! they were under two TOTALLY different.future programs & she didn't know the difference! he didn't care what anyone thought since he was building the company for the future whether stockholders liked it or not - WITH NO INTENT OF SELLING IT! SHE WAS PUT THERE TO TURN THE COMPANY AROUND/ get expenses under control & MAKE IT MORE PROFITABLE FOR SALE! instead she just wasted a huge amount of money(as a trainee) with no background for her intended purpose &everything backfired!
going- real bottom line is that yahoo keeps reporting flat or worst than flat results/ stock keeps dropping/ board disappeared/ after reporting latest qrt.-ceo should disappear & instead of yahoo being $55.00 now without spinoff- we have a very depressed stock price! EVERYBODY KNOWS ABOUT THE BABA SHARES & SPINOFF BUT NOW SEE THE CHINA SLOW DOWN SITUATION & YHOOS RESULTS (NO RESULTS) THAT KEEPS PRESURING THE STOCK PRICE! i'm aware that you & the cold one have had high praise in the past for mm but the THE RESULTS DO COUNT SOONER OR LATER AS EVIDENCE BY THE PRICE & if you talked to the sellers or snorters!
law- good question but the problem is that they don't know who they want to represent or who they can trust to represent! by the time they decide to represent someone that person comes up with statements that they don't like so they keep changing the dirty shirt!
pat-with snapchat they see potential eventhou not proven! with yahoo mgt.- the company has PROVEN no potential except wonderful programs that keep a small % mm shareholders (admirers) happy PRODUCING NO MONEY!
howard-IS YHOO IMPLODING? YES TOTALLY! FOR ME- it started right after mm became a trainee (rediculously paid ceo) & made her first acquisition! that was MORE than enough for me to determine she didn't know how to preserve the cash/ spend it wisely & she had no experience to run a possible take over company from day 1! i then became VERY defensive & made sure my investment in yhoo was made with very cheap options & little overall money! i always felt there was to much time before any spinoff (or yhoo selling) which left me in very good shape now- esp.considering the price drop! she totally wasted billions & did the opposite of what an expert takeover person would of done! they would of spent for growth & profit AT ALL TIMES & position yhoo for a future takeover rather than using the billions that produced no growth or profits WHICH HAS BEEN VERY OBVIOUS ON EACH & EVERY QUARTERLY REPORT PRODUCED BY THIS MGT.!
toby- nothing CHANGE on yhoo-load your wagon? PLS CHECK YOUR BROKERAGE ACCT.( UNDER YHOO) & SEE IF NOTHING CHANGED since your date of 1-29-15! unless you only had 1-2 shares (small dollars) i 'll bet your acct. isn't down just small CHANGE!
pebble- funny i thought previous replies indicated that yhoo was fully taxed at $45/$44/$43 & on & on!
