a decision that microsolf has to make does NOT mean that they will buy yahoo!!!!!!!!!!! i would give it a 10% chance at the max.! especially at this time before the spin off!
eric (or others) have & will find things to complain about! REMEMBER- positive changes being made & have been made because of them. IN OTHER WORDS- ASSETS & OUTSIDE SOURCES HAVE BEEN RUNNING THE COMPANY & INCREASING ITS VALUE! NOT THE MGT! SO FAR ALL POSITIVE CHANGES MADE BY MGT. WERE PREVIOUSLY ALMOST FORCED ON THEM! i wonder how much more money would of been wasted/ buy backs not done/ spin offs not happening if not for OUTSIDE SOURCES!
interesting thought - waiting until 2018! i protect myself just looking beyond 3 months! remember the market that had the rosy outcome -prior to 2008-9! if even close to that time happened between now & 2018- you would buy baba for $20.00 & yahoo for $3.00! it doesn't have to be that severe of a market to drop both substantially but they have to get things done ( one way or another) soon! show real growth & real earnings or dump the company unless they want to try ANOTHER CEO LOSER! SHE DELIVERED A BABY THAT WILL EVENTUALLY BE WORTH IN THE BILLIONS ( thanks to the board) NOW IT'S TIME TO DELIVER REAL GROWTH & EARNINGS!
NO not negative if revenue & earning grow! JUST SHOCKING- since it has been predicted for many moons & didn't happen! growth & earnings could mean many things - AFTER the figures are broken down! SHAREHOLDERS (& POTENTIAL HOLDERS) ARE LOOKING FOR REAL-REAL-REAL GROWTH & EARNINGS WHICH WILL INCREASE-INCREASE SHAREHOLDERS VALUE! SO FAR ASSETS HAVE INCREASE YHOOs VALUE & OF COURSE MM GOES TO THE BANK EVERY DAY regardless!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! she probably has maxed out with 100 banks & still showing no real growth or earnings! let hope- finally- the dream comes true!
chap-don't forget the media is one of the BIGGEST reasons that stocks take a dive! for at least 4 years they talk & talk & talk about an interest increase -even when they were positive none would occur! every day or every other day this topic comes up because it gives them something to talk about & they make sure its scary enough to draw attention! after all these years of hearing about it ( for no real reason) it's obvious it's getting closer but the media makes it sound now like ITS A SHOCKER TO REALIZE IT COULD HAPPEN! when it does-there is NO DOUBT the increase will amount to ALMOST NOTHING but the media will immediately start the routine over- developing excitement about the next possible increase & this will become the daily topic for them! also they will make sure enough negative visitors show up to light a fire under everyone!
lutts-you hear all this talk about someone buying yahoo ( after the spin off) but the real value of yahoo is if mm can finally justify even a small portion of her cost. so far yahoo is all about their assets! if mm can turn around yahoo (revenue & profit) the value of yahoo would be worth a lot more than the selling price everyone hopes for! why does fb keep increasing? IT'S "NOT" BECAUSE ITS UP FOR SALE!!!!!!! if she can't -then she is like the MANY other past leaders except she cost more than10 times all of them put together! no doubt she will make all changes outside forces are demanding if it benefits her! & it greatly will! having a everyday christmas option gift (& agreeing with demands) doesn't prove that she can get the potential real value that yahoo could generate by itself!
maybe i'm a fool but you have forecasted many of these cos. to the point that the print is wearing out! evidently you have BEEN FOOLED FOREVER & EVER! the ceo of most of these companies continue to die of laughter when they are mentioned! they NEVER had any intentions of getting involved! if so- they could of bought yahoo & its assets for nothing & its kind of stupid ( unless your not stupid) to think that other than a couple are really interested at the present values!
going & keep going-totally agree about Facebook! when you hear people talk (coming out of the social medias) the company you hear most of the time is FACEBOOK! it's very obvious that the demand for the stock is increasing since when it falls- the buyers quickly come in & it reverses itself- not the same case for many others! it is on tract to hit 100 possibly quicker than due time- unless due time is prior to year end!
most mentioned have had forever to buy yahoo & didn't- so you could forget many of them!
cold bought 3 mos. ago at 45.88? i give him credit since he came VERY CLOSE to the price now! NICE CALL- you almost predicted the exact price! yahoo is still profitable for me & i'm waiting for the price to go to the many mentioned $60-$70 & higher range! NO PROBLEM WHATSOEVER! one of my other cos. has been making the predicted moves mentioned here but a lot more of it! CACC yahoo is buying a lot of shares back but cacc isn't! compare shares!
won't do any good! he says that he lives on another planet & if he wanted to could make all our e-mail positive towards him!
kb- i don't know about the ADAMS APPLE but i do know about adam & eve! it wasn't eating the apple that started the problem- it was the pair (pear) on the ground!
win- i love cramer! you are RIGHT- HE CARRYS A LOT of weight & i mean a lot OF WEIGHT! in 2008-9 he stated (fact) CONSISTENTLY to sell my favorite common stock company ( which was previously around $40-$45 a share) & HE DIDN'T STOP/ even at $4.00. ( same company-the $25.00 preferred went to around 5-6!) i bought & bought & bought (get the idea) & got the preferred paying around 30% div.! (Yes 30% div.- they never reduced the div. on the preferred) i kept PRAYING that he would keep killing the stock eventhou i felt sorry for the people that followed his advice & sold at their losses & probably to scared at the time to get back in! very soon afterwards- once the dow started to recover both were close to the price before! love the guy eventhou this time it was TOTAL DEAD WEIGHT! jimmy-I LOVE YOU but don't know the feelings of the people towards you that no doubt took a big loss! ON NEXT HUGE DOW DROP-PLS. DO IT AGAIN -SINCE THE COMPANY IS STILL THERE BUT A LOT HIGHER!
where are ALL of the people that predicted that baba would be KILLED by today? they sure disappeared quickly! probably trying to get a loan to pay for their short position. i warned them previously that history indicated that most of baba's shareholders would retain their shares! AGAIN- I WARNED YOU!
latest news-mm was asked about the contract & she indicated that she knows nothing about it! she thought it was completed before she came but couldn't remember who she replaced!
p363- i don't blame people that make a normal mistake! he said to buy at $50 but he wasn't watching the stock for a while! he thought they had a 2 for 1 split & the new price was $50. in THEORY you are up substantially since if you had 100 shares- you now have 200! suggestion-don't put a sell order in for these shares!
my vote is to keep him! reason- we need all the buyers we can find & he seems to buy at every low price before they go lower- like me! my vote is to ban him! he didn't invite me to his parties & he probably only had cheap milwaukee best beer available- like me when i throw parties! i drink 2% & always have 98% left-overs- so no cost for me!
best- unless you haven't heard- the rumors for the past every other day for MANY YEARS was that the fed would increase rates. quess what- it never happen! so now you get on your SHORT BAND WAGON & predict the rates will now increase. my reply to your brilliant prediction is SO WHAT! after hearing about it forever-don't you think it could happen? believe mei-if it FINALLY HAPPENS THE INCREASE WILL AMOUNT TO BASICALLY NOTHING- or close to nothing! now that the media has killed the message- since they had nothing else to talk about- they will begin to talk about when the next rate incr. will happen-once this one takes affect. STAY TUNNED!
