    Sure a lot more interesting than following YHOO stock these days. Even that fly on the wall observing Yahoo's "mother of all bidding wars" was swatted when it got caught napping.

    So I guess you are trying to tell us your Call options expire Friday? Regrets ... I've been there... and lucky when I was tempted to buy leaps 3 years ago they were relatively expensive... would have also expired worthless.

    70 bidders, Bravo, 70. Don't start leaving off the zeros you've added in the past. And next month? What happened to your accustomed Monday buyout predictions? Very disappointed in your newfound cynicism.

    I get the idea it's going to take boatloads of $$$ to make her disappear. Vito Corleone might be a better option for a less costly persuasion, after he first pays Dan "Ashley Madison" Loeb a visit.

    ROTFLMAO. Bravo and his Pizza Hut and Bourbon in his Pepsi optimism diet, or shall we say "irrational,' or plain dead drunk, diet.

    Why do the manipulators bring it all down? Because they can! So simple, like Elmo's brain.

    I'm talking before 2012, maybe 2010? But I NEVER go back and waste my time looking for posts I made longer than a couple of days ago, and am not about to start now. I'm not all that surprised I responded to someone named "Pebble," and don't remember, I would suppose you weren't nearly the prolific poster then that you are these days. I don't care enough to spend any time researching it, and the post you made alluding to me being somewhat of a newbie was just in the last week, having to do with "a backhanded compliment" or something where you seemed to feel slighted, only because I mentioned I enjoyed your posts, even though I didn't always agree, simply meaning your point of view and willingness to dig up details on all things Yahoo was appreciated, as I sure don't want to spend my time on it, because I don't play the markets anymore. Realized it was bad for my well-being, with my own OCD tendencies taking over and diverting my attention from other matters I deem more important. I wish more self-named "investors" would realize they are actually "speculators," which could in reality be a gambling problem. Wall Street has a vested interested in calling these markets "investing," to make it all seem so respectable and upright, as they pocket their fees and percentages, hardly any different than a casino.

    How much will Yahoo get from Ant Financial?

    Bravo is nuts, as usual. H8mongrel is almost certainly correct: No payout to Yahoo, zilch, just some vague future promise Yahoo would get some small percentage of any eventual Alipay IPO. The problem was, Alipay seemed far more promising to future profits than the rest of Alibaba at that time, effectively screwing Yahoo over. There was no proverbial "dotted line" for Bartz to sign, the news of Ma stealing Alipay, supposedly because of some Chinese banking rules instituted to prohibit foreign ownership, was a slap in the face by Jack Ma, just a dishonest power grab on his part, and caused YHOO stop to drop suddenly and precipitously, aa anyone involved in the stock back then remembers very well.

    Pebble No.???, I don't have the time nor inclination to argue with you, but I sure don't remember any incarnations of "Pebble" in any form years ago. Coldone, Gray, Bravo, Hotmodel and others were all mainstays back then, not that I think newcomers such as yourself shouldn't be given equal respect, or allowed to join in the fun. Losing money here was NOT fun.

    Moved on ages ago Going Bozo, and saved myself a ton of grief, and weekends dreaming about the buyout you've been predicting every weekend for at least 6 years now. What a waste of time.

    H8mongrel. You sure got that 100% right. I expected Yahoo at the time to take legal action against Ma and Alibaba with the FTC, or whomever was the proper international legal authority. You can't blame MM for that one, it was Carol Bartz, another inept CEO, although a much lesser thief, as were the BOD and large shareholders. Perhaps they looked into the legality of the absconding of PayPal, and felt there was no taking on the Chinese Communist Party in cahoots with Ma. Still ... I don't believe Alibaba should have been allowed to list here in the USA until they rectified the situation. A lot of us were severely burned by this action.

    Wishful thinking before golf yet again. And Pebble, I take exception to your "critique" of my "arrival to the board." I was here on the board long before you, unless you were under a different ID years ago. I just discontinued posting for a rather long time when I got fed up with this company and stock. Hotmodel and I even used to be adversaries, it was that long ago, and Bravo an ally, when I was a rather fervent long. All I know is for entertainment value only, I returned to checking out the board, and here you were, continuously posting like an addict, and even seemingly positing yourself as some sort of "savant" regarding Yahoo. I sense you don't know even a smidgen of what Hotmodel knows of the history and financial details here. I grudgingly gained respect for him, although, the stock did eventually break both south and then north of the trading range where he once claimed it was terminally stuck. But at least you do seem to want to do the dirty work as he did for us, and dig into and read the filings and financials, although your interpretation often seems a bit suspect in judgement. JMO

    But Yahoo isn't in the least bit cute, rather a used up old hag, and the gorilla is not all that special either anymore, having run out of creative opening lines.

    Don't worry, won't be $6B, and Jack Ma won't go public just to spite Yahoo, or until after it is sold, which might mean NEVER!

    West Virginia is one of our most beautiful states, with great, resourceful people. If you have never been there, the New River area is stunning. Let me guess about you, NYC or SF, uppity silver spoon narcissistic clown?

    All these bids for yhoo's core yet,

    BABA doesn't have the money to buy more than a few of its own shares back at market value, and why should they want a rotting core and faltering Yahoo Japan? They've got enough on their plate keeping their own business viable. 39 plus or minus 3 for all of Yahoo, certainly not just the core, sum of the parts, if the buyers even exist. Skeptical.

    She's "magic," alright. Magic how much of Yahoo she takes from shareholders, and turns into salaries and stock options for herself and her cronies and enablers, such as Dan "Ashley Madison" Loeb, without anyone filing a lawsuit, or putting her behind bars.

    It's a well-known fact, at least according to Bravo, that Tim Armstrong, nephew of Jack Armstrong, All-American, is desperate to run Yahoo. He can't live without running another loser. But The will do their best to run the price up to thwart his plans. And there's that Apple fly-on-the-wall, also desperately needing Yahoo, in order to shore up revenues after their earnings fiasco, by obtaining a foothold into China via Alibaba. And don't forget Softbank. But DO try to forget about the taxes that will be owed by Yahoo, until they move to Belize, and MM throws a billion dollar techno party.

    Don't worry, 40-100 bidders for the much vaunted Artifact of the Ancient Internet are all just playing possum, waiting anxiously for the "mother of all bidding wars" to commence.
