Pokernut, you're spot on about Katie Couric. Total waste of money. Could have got Hannah Davis, and her horse, for those kind of bucks, but Marissa is too jealous. How about Hannah for CEO?!
Those nasty manipulators. They had a three day weekend for dinners together at their favorite restaurants in The Hamptoms, in which to plot the downfall of Yahoo and Alibaba. They probably never even got their feet in the sand, lest they have to take off their Gucci loafers. And Bernie Sanders only gets to eat spaghetti! Best to you Bernie ... we need your voice to be heard!
Raise a sprizer glass, to Jerry Yang, and when Yahoo was an exciting company in the young internet. Spill a glass over Mark Cuban, and the countless other salesmen, who took advantage of the situation, and got filthy rich selling a bill of goods, of which MM just seems to be the current one. Getting out fishing and kayaking on a beautiful Michigan lake, just wish Cold Fish and Going Bozo would do the same. Of course, we all like money, but so much less stress since I said NO MAS stock market gambling, aka "investing." Happy weekend to all.
How about Israel rejects all nuclear inspections, and won’t even acknowledge its Dimona facilities and nuclear capabilities and large arsenal of weapons, of which Iran is at least 30 years behind? All these AIPAC sycophants can shut up about Iran until Israel is open to inspections. Along with North Korea, Israel is the most dangeroius country in the world. Worse, because cowards in thr US refuse to stand up to them, and keep sending my taxes to tune of billions of dollars to support their militaristic, agressive war efforts.
Why complain to the SEC? There's plenty enough of cheating to go around in the ACC, BIG 10, PAC 10, etc.!!
Thanks MB, I realize I'm of little practical use on the board, except to hopefully provide an occasional chuckle. Can't stand incessant cheerleaders, worse than perpetual cynics!
Going Bozo, buy some Q-Tips. He said $40, not $46, and that's only one man's opinion, it could be optimistic, although not as foaming at the mouth optimstic as your typical $60 minimum prognosis. Go get your rabies shots.
I'd been thinking of buying back into YHOO myself, for the same reason, not MSFT or VZ or AAPL buying it, but BABA itself to get its own shares back, seemingly on the cheap. But I worry about Ma's honesty, or lack of, and BABA financials, and am concerned a huge collapse in BABA is not especially unlikely. Major caution advised. Once bitten twice shy ... great Mott The Hoople song!
And his "imaginary army" did the prudent thing, SELL like crazy. Will be interesting to see how this all shakes out, could it be a buying opportunity?. Already seems like the panic selling in YHOO is over. If I owned a lot of stock of anything in this market, which I don't, it could be a good time to sell call options. Seems at best, markets want to go stagnant for a while ... buying enthusiasm quickly dissipating, but no big selling ... yet.
Fast Money should be better. Bloomberg TV was a good alternative to CNBC, although plenty of shills also on that station. I travel a lot, and it seems to have disappeared from hotel/motel cable.
Been saying, not the Yahoo core, but the doubts about BABA, Jack Ma, and Chinese government holding this stock back. Never a done deal. Alipay revisited, and another question looms, did Loeb and/or MM see this coming?. I smell a rat in the kitchen.
I heard a rumor that Yahoo will soon announce Going Bozo as the new chief minister of disinformation.
Excellent point Matsky. Every single one of her supporters on this board is still begging for a buyout, and praying the core will be worth something, despite her total lack of creative initiatives, so far. Same as all the other previous Yahoo CEOs, just busy cashing in their almost unlimited stock options. Nary a one of her supporters hete have said they don't want a buyout, as they are confident in her increasing the value of the core, of which there isn't much worth left, with all the tasty fruit rotted away.
Thank you Brago, for your usual pearls of wisdom. Why don't you tell us again at what price you loaded up around the old MSFT offer? $6? $14? Yeah, Right Baby, Right!! More like $44? Yeah Baby, you savvy investor!! You must also be the founder and spammer of Ultimate Stock Alerts.
The tears are forming. Why don't you really do something for them, like take them to Walgreens or Disneyland? Bravo needs his Ambien and Nyquil.
What value outside BABA shares and Yahoo Japan? That tremendous push they've made into mobile? LOL What mobile?
