they can accept or refuse but are also subject to being sued if they DON'T FOLLOW PROCEDURES IN THE BEST INTEREST OF STOCKHOLDERS! example- pl board accepted a bid 20 points higher than the 50 price (excellent offer) but being sued since they didn't get other bids! this possibly could hold off the deal depending on the outcome!
you indicate the pop would of happened with any ceo. you must of forgot the last 5 that didn't have much of a fizz before their positioned POPPED!
hope it starts in 2 weeks! here again- the road show needs people (right?) & people (show people) have to plan for their trip & need accommodations (right?) & the show has to advise guess (right?) unless they talk to themselves (right?) ????????????? NOTHING has been verified by any rumors that the show is about to begin or that someone has been informed to appear for the show! CROSS OUT SHOW ME THE MONEY WITH SHOW ME THAT SOMEONE WILL PUT ON THE SHOW & SOMEONE WILL BE ADVISED TO BE THERE! huge company & nobody is aware of it!
she will have more money (on a buyout) than this ENTIRE board could dream of! check out all the wifes on this board & see how many don't have her assSETS!
no brainer for msft? someone better tell them since it has been mentioned here 1000 times. msft evidently isn't interested or they would of produced a deal months ago when yahoo's assets were worth a lot less!
i don't think his personal opinion has anything to do with yahoo! if so- then everyone on this board & other investment firms giving insight should be muzzled! we are not all in a quiet period!
i love a stubborn woman! just think if you were married to her & realized she made a fortune being stubborn & out smarting the yahoo board!
she would make a fortune & they would have no choice but to present the offer to the shareholders! bottom line- she would be no problem whatsoever unless the board felt the offer wasn't reasonable!
honky-no source only wishful thinking! if the world is buying YAHOO WHY CAN'T IT EVEN GO BACK TO $40? i also would like to see it but the stock doesn't reflect BIG MONEY believing all the so called EVIDENCE! i'm just talking about big money & NOT THE COS. MENTIONED TO BUY YAHOO.
pebble- where have you been? he has been proven WRONG WRONG WRONG several times in the past- but that is not the problem! THE PROBLEM IS THAT HIS ARMY ( INCLUDING YOU) WON'T ADMIT WHEN HE IS WRONG! OF COURSE THE COLDONE IS TOTALLY FROZEN ( when he is wrong) SO WE DON'T EXPECT HIM TO ADMIT ANYTHING!
sounds good-great sales jump-great financial position! lot os shares for present sales unless sales keep flying! if not -mm has another acquisition with hardly no profit! still agree- lots of potential! combining the companies!
excellent post but i'm not a believer even though i definitely hope it does happen! the stock ( at this price) is a great buy ( esp. for someone buying the company ) but it been moving like a $3.00 stock! . doesn't seem like ANYONE IS ACCUMULATING IT!
yes they did! they are going to buy themselves! don't you know 1 million gossip columns were already written about yahoo! what value is one more!
i'm thinking NO BUYOUT & it will go up depending on the valuation of alibaba & demand! hope i'm wrong but on past major hype - I HAVE BEEN RIGHT & ON RECORD BEING RIGHT!
my biggest mistake was getting out of pl ( i always followed & owned pl & lnc) hoping it would drop & get back in! for years- i always felt that pl & lnc would be acquired so now i will always keep lnc & keep ADDING when the price drops! if the market drops substantially-lnc will definitely follow- so my value will drop accordingly! i will accept it because over time lnc will benefit me & i'll be holding a very quality company! i have made a lot of money on lnc & this is just my future procedure!
nasdaq- WHAT IF? why the question? what if you left this earth tomorrow? WHAT IF THEY WERE ACQUIRED OR not acquired & THE STOCK JUMPED BECAUSE OF THE ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF MONEY THEY WILL GET? WOULD YOUR" PUTS" BE OF NO VALUE? do you know of a company that makes 1 billion profit & WILL POSSIBLY GET A CHRISTMAS PRESENT OF 30 YEARS OF INCOME OR MORE? YOUR PUTS WILL TANK BIG TIME!
