Bb-why so long for the sale-its called "uniformity" ! no revenue or profits for 4 yrs.! no sales of assets for 4 yrs.! 4 yrs of draining yahoos assets! 4 yrs of watching the yahoo board sell their extremely-extremely generous options while yahoo is being evaluated (report card) as "f" "f"'f''f' for" no" results! 4 yrs. yahoos board watched the shareholders suffer continuously- while they gave themselves a fortune! you would think the board would want to get out immediately but wait to you see the shareholders "exit" cost for them!
toby001-give a break to mm? look at her results & the shareholders should of given her & the board a 4 yr. break & they would be been better off! toby-recent comments read today should be added to giving her a break! she is disliked by 66% of the employees! 26 start-up founders & executives left -try finding any positive there- while LOOKING for any revenue & THE THING CALLED PROFITS! don't forget more run-aways will join the rest very soon that yhoo paid a fortune for their starts ups! remember the enthusiasm generated for tumplr & it was rated in the top 6? last i read it wasn't even in the top 100 -check out the cost of that co.! remember LIVETECT? now known as "DEADTECT"! RECENT COMMENT WAS ITS APPS DROPPED OUT OF THE TOP 1000! great buy! not being in the top 1000 might be a better rating then all the other acquisitions that never were mentioned because maybe-just maybe -maybe- there is nothing to mention! it sounds like there are more than enough "BREAKS" ALREADY IN TO MANY AREAS!
pebble 11x- jack said " america ( including pebble 11x) can't understand what" controlling interest is!" jack said- they might have the dough-dough-dough but we have controll-control-control!!
going- how long ago would baba & wal-mart combined been a dominate factor? did it happen? how long has baba's shares been available? how much cash ( they spent on numerous acquisitions) has baba saved to buy wal mart? did you hear of "any" rumors that wal mart wanted to buy baba even at a depressed price? just one rumor?
doeonnwoic- i would love to see all my cos bought by the biggest in their industry & i think it will happen tomorrow! if not- one of the other (6) days next week or within 60 yrs of tomorrow! i remember cos. being bought out forever & it never happened but i'm sure it will happen tomorrow!
GOING- YOUR PROBABLY RIGHT ABOUT BABA & WALMART BEING A VERY GOOD COMBINATION-AS WELL AS" MANY" OTHERS ESP. NOW WITH BABA'S PRICE! THE BOTTOM LINE IS- NOBODY CAN BUY THEM WITHOUT THEIR APPROVAL & THEIR SHARES COULD OF BEEN SOLD FOREVER & WERE NOT! DID YHOO HIDE THE FACT THEY THEY HAD MANY OFFERS FOR BAB'S SHARES OR MAYBE THEY JUST DIDN'T? remember- lollipop jack likes acquisitions & needs all cash available to land a big one that he is always trying to suck in his controlling company!
Bs- if i controlled a company no matter "what" - i wouldn't waste a stamp or phone call worrying about someone having a 15% stake! I just talked to jack & he stated that he talked to his controlling committee & they indicated they did give it a 1 second thought but sorry" bs" had a hard time sleeping because of it! also they wanted to help you & requested that you check out what "controlling interest" means!
toby001-sorry but i just read your 1st sentence "only" & DON'T HAVE YOUR COMPASSION - WISH I DID! to me she will never look like a "cute star" even if yahoo sold themself 4 times! I GUESS YOU DON'T REALIZE WHAT THE PRICE OF YAHOO COULD OF BEEN IF THEY HAD "ANY" MEANINGFUL REVENUE & PROFITS DURING THE LAST 4 YRS RATHER THAN BEING CONSIDERED AS A HOPELESS COMPANY THAT WASTED BILLIONS & DEFINITELY GOING NOWHERES! REMEMBER THE "CUTE POTENTIAL STAR" NEVER-NEVER-NEVER-NEVER WILL RECOUP THE MONEY WASTED & NOBODY BUYS HER "GREAT FUTURE POTENTIAL" THAT SHE USES FOR EVERY LOUSY QUARTERLY & ANNUAL REPORT"! ALL THE ANALYST EVEN STATE THIS GREAT FUTURE POTENTIAL COMPANY BEING MGT. BY YAHOOS BOARD IS USELESS & HAS NO FUTURE WITH THEM! THEY CAN'T EVEN PRODUCE" ONE QUALITY REPORT" IN THE LAST 4 YRS.! 16 REPORTS PLUS DISAPPEARING ACQUISITIONS & PROGRAMS THAT ARE GUTTERED PRODUCE A "CUTE POTENTIAL STAR"!
i'm really starting to feel really sorry for her since i can't believe she still feels like the company is really progressing! does she really believe after 4 yrs. of producing NOTHING-NOTHING THAT THERE IS HOPE WITH THEIR PRESENT BOARD? THE ONLY THING THEY PRODUCED IS A POT OF GOLD FOR THE BOARD WHILE THE COMPANY SINKS & SINKS! DOES SHE REALLY UNDERSTAND THE COMPANIES QUARTERLY & ANNUAL REPORTS? IF SHE FEELS THE BOARD IS GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION THEN THEY BETTER GET ANOTHER AUDIT FIRM TO CORRECT ALL THEIR PAST STATEMENTS SHOWING "NOTHING" FROM AN INCREASE IN REVENUE & EARNINGS! ALSO- ESP. CORRECT THE" LATEST ONE "SINCE ITS WORST THAN THE REST!
saully123- baba & yahoo trade in sync??? i agree & disagree! yahoo & baba first trade with the market & could go either way depending on china/oil/recession & interest rates etc! this type of market goes where it wants to go with any news & explodes on bad news! baba or yahoo ( like 90% of the cos.) go with it! even if yahoo gets 10 billion ( who knows when) baba could go a lot lower with a sizable drop in the market & more news of china having a further slow down! i made that statement about baba a couple yrs ago. when someone stated baba was at its bottom around $105! if we hit one of the 3 past worst markets you could get baba for $5.00! i couldn't buy my best company for $45.00 & bought lots & lots at $5.00 & $6 for the preferred & they were ONLY paying me 30%-yes 30% dividend on the preferred! one yr later- sold one at around$42 & the preferred at around $23!
exacto-yahoo will fetch from $50 to $56 now???? i love to see these types of figures because looking at the price-the big investors just can't realize they could double their investment soon! don't you think something might be missiing???
boardreader99- totally agree except she could easily become a ceo in the future! also higher than a ceo! yahoos insane board gave her tons of money to buy out a company! she could be the owner/ ceo/ pres. & later on after no increase revenue or profits the janitor!
goldman just makes comments to let people know he is there & really doesn't say anything! what did he say that even an idiot hasn't heard before numerous times! all his previous statements said nothing or (as in the past) avoided making a statement! good example- he was asked in the past about the bloated amount of employees & he avoided given an answer! everyone knew they were 3000 or more overstaffed since ( & before ) mm was unfortunately hired but HE COULDN'T EVEN VERIFY THAT! he is available for comments after its confirmed & MENTIONED 100 TIMES & tries to make it look like he is on top of the situation! he is like a baseball player hitting a home run after the game is over!
coldone- in case you didn't notice ( check your prices) yahoo is 4 yrs to late with the sale!
Toby001- the worst ceo in 100 years & the most paid for- that had no-no-no- results in history! she broke 2 records in 4 years! Yhoo could of gone to places where they housed the poor & hired anyone & they could of had as good (or better) statistics than yahoos board! they might not even know how to turn on the computer!
Going -i'm reminded you that i didn't cover when you suggested to everyone 100 times that they will be very-very very sorry- if they don't! i'll admit that i'm very sorry-sorry sorry for you that you did! you shouldn't even listen to your own advice!
going-going-going & going! why are you pushing the stock? how many TIMES have you stated that yahoo is a GREAT-GREAT-GREAT LONG TERM BUY & IT HAS DROPPED EVERY-EVERY-EVERY TIME! YOU DON'T EVEN LEARN WHEN YOUR LOSING YOUR SOCKS ( AS* ) EVERY DAY! CAN'T YOU SEE ALL THE NEGATIVE FORCES IN THIS MARKET & THE FACT THAT YAHOO DOESN'T NEEDED ANY SINCE THEY HAVE (YAHOO BOARD) CREATED ENOUGH FOR1000 NEGATIVE COS.! CHINA/OIL/INTEREST RATES GOING LOWER RATHER THAN HIGHER/RECESSION TALKS ETC ETC. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN -YOU CAN ONLY DRINK SO MUCH! IN CASE YOU DON'T REALIZE IT -YOU CAN'T CONTROL THE MARKET & THERE IS MORE-MORE-MORE TO IT THAN YAHOO!
