When cable finally goes belly-up and wireless takes over, will YAHOO be a major player? Lot's of potential there. Jeff bezos also appears to be vying for that .spot.
Maybe their role was to get others to step up and make offers. If that was the case, I wonder who hired them (maybe YHOO, itself).
So what do they stand to gain? Are they just offering their "services" to be the go-between on any deals?? What a bunch of sh!theads!
It could give Jeff Bezos a big advantage over Jack Ma.
Both need display points and shipping points.
5000 well-established prime locations.
I think amazon is the best bet.
What equity? Most of their stores are leased. The 2 likeliest suitors aren't looking for equity--they're looking for presence.
Don't expect alibaba to do anything until after their IPO (which is this Thursday or Friday, I believe). I'm hoping that alibaba or amazon will pick up RSH's established infrastructure and local presence.
Radio Shack's crown jewel is its brick and mortar presence. They have a lot of nationwide prime locations. Amazon or Alibaba could move right in. Think about it.
That's what I've been hoping for.
Maybe it will be easier for them to do that after they establish their US presence with the IPO.
Will anyone knowledgeable about international ownership please speak up!
Or will we be rewarded (with a dividend, for example) for remaining YHOO! shareholders?
