from 14 . . . to $41.50. Done. mid-six figure profit. My advice - be cautious at these levels.
holder since Sept 2011 . . .check out the 5 day, 10 day and 1 month charts . . .very bullish. typically this thing flops all over the pace but it's consolidating nicely on decent volume.
no question, ali is looking to take on the US Market in a major way. They would love yahoo's 700,000,000 users - their emails, their loyalty to the sites like sports, finance, etc. There have been rumblings about Ali taking a large stake in yahoo (20%) but who knows what will happen. IT seems like there is a ton of cross pollination that can benefit ALI's run into the US Market and the Japanese Market via Yahoo's properties.
Prior to IPO and Prior to next earnings, YHOO is volatile - that's a given. THere are major major catalysts out there, people are squaring their positions. Both times the stock dropped back to $33, the support was significant. If it triple tests and achieves support at $33, it'll run back to $35. If Earnings show any growth - you are looking at a $40 stock - literally a 20% jump in one day.
THere's something here. As Ali goes to potentially spin off its entertainment and content arm, There are huge synergies with Yahoo.
On a very broad down day. Yhoo simply had buyers lined up supporting it the entire day. Consolidation and then another drive to the $37 level which once it breaches, should be a quick run to $40. Good support at current level.
Yahoo is primed for a takeout by PE group in partnership with Apple or Microsoft.
Has a significant price dislocation, huge potential upside with an increasing asset base, good cash flow. Minimal growth. Private Equity loves these types of equations . . . this would not surprise me.
If Apple were to take a stake in yahoo in exchange for search services, it could get very interesting. Apple needs to do something constructive with its cash.
i survived a crash down to $11 on a significant position in sept of 2011. check historical messages.
Now that the gap has been filled back to 36.50, if it holds, you'll see a run to $38+ within 1-2 days.
Strong performance this week and healthy sign. Agree that you have a $42-44 stock . . .easily. Holding since $14.
yes, this is the current rumor so we hear . . .apparently MA might be willing to pay $42-44/share for Yahoo and Mayer is holding out for $50-55 - so major delta still. I can see a deal happening at $47-49
Yahoo will consolidate back to $37.50 over next 1-2 trading days and then fill gap to $40. If eclipses $41.50, you have a run to $45 with minimal resistance. Bottom line, you have an easy $40 here . .. getting above $41.50 will depend on news, etc.
In a turbulent market.....cash on the balance sheet and cash flow and earnings are key and yhoo has all....yhoo market cap is reflecting a huge dislocation in underlying value of Asian assets and potential of core.....ANY sign of even the slightest turnaround will spike the shares. The shareholder payout in buybacks, spec. Div. Or other actions put a huge safety net around the stock. If the nasdaq didn't crash, it'd be at $40. Holding since 14.
All good sign . . tribune is struggling - see their recent earnings so assume he needs to focus there . .. but hunch tells me they might introduce some A+ C-Suite board members to the yahoo board - star power on the level of a john chambers . . . not him but that level. Stock will move on the news.
major institutional consolidation and buying going on. If it sustains by close of trading, you have your reversal confirmed. Gap to $37.50 needs to be filled.
and active consolidated buying on dips. If it holds tomorrow, this will be a confirmed reversal and i'd expect a run back to $37-39 levels by earnings.
some of the parts is $10-15 minimum above what the current trade is. Yhoo is caught up in the Naz selling fenzy but they have an incredible liquidity event - a once in a lifetime event - that the GOOGs, FB, NFLX, AMZN don't have. This catalyst will put a floor at near current levels and if support holds, it'll be back to $36-38 wtihin 1 week. There will be a violent reversal in the selling. Positive YHOO earnings will really rally the stock - parabolically as the street has low expectations.
Mayer is tech and so is new CEO of MSFT . . . there's a connection there.
Who would want to work with Balmer.
Yahoo may very well indeed be in play . . .for real this time around.
