A quick search shows 46,000 posts from SMV alone (including responses). That's 46,000 "eyeballs" that Yahoo can claim to its advertisers. It is helpful that Yahoo's advertisers are too lame to realize that SMV et al are not only getting free space when they are paying, but are actually diverting away potential customers.
Yahoo is a third rate company with indifferent or incompetent management which is why it has "negative" value and an industry low P/E.
Time to thoroughly clean house.
As both an owner of this stock AND someone with a reasonable probability of being a customer in the foreseeable future (which is why I bought it a few years ago), I find the responses to my first post to be flippant to the point of being uncaring.
This appears to be a 2nd line drug, only taken after the first fails either because of intolerable side effects or because it doesn't work or most likely, stops working after a period of time (frequently months). By then, , the patient is likely to have RCC in one or more locations (lungs, liver) and be in an extremely weakened condition.
In addition to length of life, there is something many of us have considered called quality of life during one's remaining time. Please keep that in mind. Should it come to that, I know I will.
Those posting about stock prices and fast track clearly do not understand how insidious a disease Kidney Cancer really is. It starts as a slow growing tumor on or in a kidney. There are no blood or other test and frequently no symptoms. If the patient is “lucky”, a CT scan for something else will lead to a diagnose before the cancer has metastasized to fast growing, fatal tumors in the lungs, liver, bone or brain (where it is still kidney cancer and treated as such).
The ONLY CURE for RCC is extensive, painful, major surgery – removal of all or part of a kidney; then, if possible, removal of the metastases wherever they are. Radiation doesn’t work on RCC and there is no adjunctive therapy (chemo or treatment to prevent reoccurrence after surgery).
Once surgery is no longer an option, life expectancy is statistically under 3 years and consists of sequential medication coupled with a steadily declining quality of life until the cancer takes over a vulnerable part of the body and kills the patient, or the patient dies from failure of the remaining kidney or liver likely caused by the medication taken to treat the cancer.
The first non-surgery treatment is probably Sutent (Sunitinib), a medicine with sometimes debilitating side effects that, for a months or perhaps a year+ will slow or reverse tumor growth as evidenced in periodic CT scans. Eventually, Sutent stops working and the patient is shifted to a second line (like Cabo may be). By then, the patent may have multiple tumors and is severely weakened from the first therapy.
I’m guessing that Cabo may be taken for several months up to a year by most patients before it too fails and the patient, if still alive and strong enough to tolerate it, is switched to something else for an even shorter period.
Notwithstanding what I hoped when I bought the stock, this NOT a cure; this is one more interim medieval horror designed to slow kidney cancer that the doctors know will quickly be fatal.
The best use for Cabo is that it keeps patients alive until a medication comes along with lasting results at which time Cabo and EXEL will be just another footnote in the history of cancer treatment.
Even though I own the stock, I hope that is soon.
Have you noticed that the bottom-feeder from StockMarketVideo gives critics multiple thumbs down using his many id's that Yahoo's lame employees allow him to apply for.
I don't think Yahoo actually sold them the rights although, in order to up the "eyeball" count, middle managers are prepared to look the other way. Basically, enabling these posts makes Yahoo a third rate company.
As a long time shareholder, I wanted to try the new sirloin burger. It was really awful. Overcooked; dry; grey; burnt on the edges. The package says "juicy". No way. I thought it had been left standing too long and sent it back. They made me a "fresh" one. Still overcooked, dry and grey. The overriding taste was salt.
If McD is counting on the sirloin burger to turn the company around, shareholders have a real problem.
And for $36.00, you can get a burger for $36.00 at the 21 Club in NY and have great rest rooms!
We are talking about McDonalds new SIRLOIN BURGER, nothing else.
Mine was awful.
Was it a problem with the burger? Or the recipe? Or did the local McDonalds just cook it wrong?
Calls every morning. If Verizon can't deal with this, we are going to dump Verizon. We are not shareholders. Why would anyone want to own stock in a company whose management allows its customers to be spammed on a daily basis?

Of course, you could also send a polite email to Yahoo's corporate secretary's office asking that these people have their posts deleted and Yahoo ID's cancelled.
