    BABA will buy Yahoo

    cap-i agree $62.00 seems reasonable! as far as the m&a frenzy- i think its a m&m frenzy for the board to hurry up & pay another 200 million for a new trainee! lets face it- trainees are how to come by when proven turn around specialist are to cheap! - trainees can guarantee ( not fica ) you that there will be no addn'l cost when outside sources run the company!

    it's not her fault! the board has kept her to busy counting all her stock options.

    Give it UP - MM will NOT sell

    i feel it's guaranteed that she will because she has several million shares & a lot to gain! also fortunately outside sources running the company will demand it! she is perceived as a ceo that had produce no turn around whatsoever (so far) except during her dance lessons! also- she could take the enormous funds she got (as a trainee) & run a start up company learning from the many mistakes she was rewarded for ( as a trainee)! remember (as a trainee) she could of retired after 6 months on the job & lived a life of leasure forever!

    Excerpt from Seeking Alpha article

    lutts-the words "this could change " & now "for the time being" & some TOP tax experts indicating "a delay is very possible" leaves a lot of doubt hanging over our heads! also- maybe someone knows the answer but probably not since we aren't sure of the exact area or several areas that could present a problem. question is -would congress have any decision making over the irs ruling? if so-a big delay is almost guaranteed unless it wouldn't affect ones already in the pipeline!

    guess who is on the top ten paid exc.list

    matsky5 matsky5 May 26, 2015 6:45 PM Flag

    the BOD approved mm for the position! the BOD approved her acquisitions & probable any material changes ( also while she was a ceo trainee)! the BOD gave her the fortune ( as a trainee) so she could retiree for life after one yr -as a trainee! don't expect them mentioning that THEY MADE A SLIGHT MISTAKE ALONG THE WAY! instead of paying her-they should of paid outside sources since they were the ones to make positive recommendations & basically forced them on the company! the BOD ( & past BODS) have successfully developed a company that rates HIGHLY for producing FLAT REVENUE & EARNINGS! extremely consistent phantom group! BUT THERE IS ONE BIG BIG POSITIVE! they could of given mm all the baba shares to attract her but has the wisdom not to!

  • GUESS WHO WAS #1? I'LL BET THEY DIDN'T INCLUDE ALL OF HER TOTAL PAY PKG.! i''ll never tell who she is!

    pebble- i'm aware they have a tax obligation now but mm also has an obligation to show results regardless of other assets to FURTHER the demand for the stock! it's hard to expect a price increase if you don't give them increases expected! was she brought here (given a fortune) with the understanding to continue to show flat results after dispersing a lot of baba funds - for whatever reason? we both know that yahoo is worth billions & it is ridiculous to think other wise but the entire mgt. of yahoo ( including its board) is PERCEIVED to be useless & they will continue slowly ( but surely) to run the company into the ground. ( core 0 value) EVERYONE (or 91 1/2 %) WANTS YHOO TO BE SOLD immediately without taxes holding their breath that mm could come up with ONE quarter to give a hopeful sign that there is a thing called A TURN AROUND. yahoo board (since mm was hired) is like a phantom group that won't recognize NO results maybe because they hired her & approved the acquired cos. & changes! i guess if you can't get a TURN AROUND THEN GO FOR THE NEGATIVE TURN AROUND! at least the word TURN AROUND is shown!

    lutts- i hope they do ( as a stockholder-never shorted yhoo) why wouldn't i want good results. problem- is that with all the buy backs & acquisitions the bottom line isn't improving! mm (bless her soul) needs to have her strategy blessed along with it! she is NOT being paid an ENORMOUS-ENORMOUS SUM from DAY ONE to show flat results & just wait for the co. to be sold! if so- they should of kept ALL THE PREVIOUS BABA MONEY & NOT spent a dime! 90% of the cos. that i invested in (because of a change in mgt).bought other cos. THAT ADDED TO THEIR EARNINGS & THE GREAT MAJORITY THAT DID showed immediately improvements (2-4 qrs later) ! here- buybacks-buybacks-buybacks/ acquisitions-acquisitions-acquisitions = flat earnings because the good acquisitions will produce when????? & the other part of the co is eating up any positives that will produce when i'm dead!

    my personal opinion is that yahoo is priced ( even with all its assets) at the current price only because by itself it has been a total dud! yahoo ( with its assets) could be priced NOW at $55 ( or higher) if they could of showed any meaningful results! obviously it hasn't happen unless they are hiding favorable revenue & earnings statistics that nobody has!

    lutts- your assessment with max makes sense to me! i would also rather have yhoo be at $44 than $50 or $55 since there is more room for the price to go up! using ( as an example) one of my stocks CACC- i wish it was now at somewhere around $50 than over $230 from 1 yr . ago so it would have more chance to go up!

    max-you are stating that mm is smart & is keeping us undervalued for the spinoff! are you saying that we should be at $25.00 a share then mm would be even SMARTER keeping us way-way undervalued for the spinoff? you don't really think that a possible problem with the spinoff or flat revenue & earnings had anything to do with the present yahoo price? good to know since i have been totally mislead by my thinking!

    sjones- WHY CRITICIZE SOMEONES SPELLING LIKE YOU DID MAXX? ASKING HIM IF HE GRADUATED FROM THE THIRD GRADE! some of the leading ceo's in the past NEVER GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL & SOME NOT EVEN GRADE SCHOOL BUT MADE MORE MONEY THAN YOU COULD DREAM OF & HAD AN EXTREMELY HIGH BUSINESS I.Q.! spelling a word doesn't mean you can't make great decisions! in this particular case you probably understood his intent! did you know his background? do you know his age? do you know if he has a medical problem? actually none of it matters because if you want to criticize peoples spelling then become a teacher ( MAYBE YOU ARE & CAN'T STOP BEING ONE) & you could do it all day long! actually you could do it all day long here & include me! I CAN'T SPELL EITHERERERER BUT IT DOESN'T MATTER TO ME SINCE NOBODY HAS EVER PAID ME ANY MONEY TO SPELL A WORD CORRECTLY! i made it on my own research without taking advice from anybody & i can't spell!

    i agree- & they should of done something with yahoo japan & yahoo long ago ( & saved a lot of wasted cash) & it wouldn't be an issue now! also all these values arrived at are meaningless if the market takes a dive prior to the SPIN OFF! we have more than the spinoff to worry about from all these delays! we don't know what the affect will be running into higher interest rates. even an idiot would know that 1/4 point increase (90% chance) MEANS NOTHING but the market reaction might be totally negative for all stocks just before orwhen it happens!

    mccor has a right to say what he feels is a big negative for yahoo (mm) just like you present all your positives along with a few negatives but overall you do a very good job! you keep indicating " if you don't like her-move on)! fact is i don't like her ( not personally only as the ceo) & i'm NOT moving on! (SORRY!) ( AS YOU WELL KNOW)) the great-great majority of yahoo investor are here ONLY because of BABA!!!!!!!! what do they talk about? what do they daily watch? what does the media talk about when they mention yahoo? where would yahoo be without baba? remove all babas assets & all past cash received & then calculate what yahoos (mm) results would be? remember- WITH THEM THERE FLAT! i guess you know why MOST ARE HERE!

    almost 2 mos. into the second quarter & should be within 1 point of a potential bottom. do you take a chance for a drop or start buying because of a possible move upward after this huge reduction in their price! i'm buying now mainly because one day of a good price increase- might prevent buying at this present price. also i'm buying on any future price drop! i don't want to miss out ( with a lot of shares) at the present excellent price (being overly conservative) & missing out at a lower price! want a lot of shares under both conditions!

    she said everything is fine & going well! IS IT? DOES THAT MEAN NO DELAY? basically she stated that there is an enormous amount of paper work in the spinoff process. THAT IS SAD! at the end of the year it took about 7 weeks to complete our budget but it took a week for the president & ceo to approve it. i wonder how many (besides outside sources) they have doing it for them! i wonder what the overall legal cost will be to sue the employee from talking when told it was a SECRET? to think you could form a group of employees & prevent them from mentioning these so called secrets as an employee (or afterwards) as an X EMPLOYEE is going to be costly & outcome might be a slap on the wrist. if you want it to be a SECRET WHEN TELLING A GROUP OF PEOPLE- make sure that group is part of the people in the cemetery!
