Greens better get a horse while they can and Hillary better start taking the train rather then her personal jet! Oh I forgot, the left will continue to buy plugs -in cars --never mind they are 40% (and much greater outside the U.S.) powered by burning coal. But why let fact get in the way of a good story!
President Oslama business and the U.S. economy will have to depart his kingdom before any major mergers. Can't have any more job losses before the election so liar Hillary can get elected.
Be working its own deal for the sales of Yahoo core and Yahoo Japan, with that in hand, make a tender offer for all of Yahoo's shares--making money on buying it own shares by swapping additional shares with Yahoo shareholders and completing pre-arranged taxable sales of Core and Yahoo Japan. Neither Yahoo nor its shareholders would owe tax on the appreciation of its Baba shares. Ma is shrewd--could come next week...
Precious metal stocks have been selling at only a small fraction of their historical values--market is correcting finally. They don't ring a bell when the trend changes!
Anyone remember who the #$%$ or jerk-off was that said Yahoo would be over $60 in 5 days of such an announcement? Where was the SEC--CNBC facilitates these types of guys.
Chinese Gold Exchange--
It will be difficult for Fed. and friends to control the price of gold! Chinese will back their currency with gold causing UDS to find it true value. This is game changing! Look to see gold and miners at their historical highs. AUY to $20 +!
MM and BOD and their hired advisors will or have screwed-up the bidding to keep their jobs. Stock action is not encouraging over the past few days. It may already have occurred depending upon the parameters and limitations they may have placed on the bidding and the process itself. A simpler way would have been to ask for bids for all of Yahoo stock period. No company taxes, mixed bidding, subsequent restructuring complexities, etc. If MM fails the shareholders, it will cement her biggest CEO loser position in recent history!
To pollute the world --paid for by U.S. taxpayers and authorized by so call green Dems--what a perfect lie! You give me political money and I pass taxpayer funded legislation for you and hype your clean bs which drives your stock higher so you can give Dems yet more money. Perfect for lying Hillary!
If Yahoo is not sold (100% of Yahoo stock offer --for cash or combination stock/cash) over $45 --shareholders will be greatly disappointed and it will be confirmed how lousy MM and BD BODs really are! Shareholders would all then gladly vote for another BOD slate!
They want to reduce pollution so they give taxpayer money to TSLA car buyer when they run 50% on electricity made from burning polluting coal! Great --like Obama's other well thought out policies...
Anti-trust rules are out-data and illogical. A set of laws that attempts to look at restraints/market concentration, never asking what really in the best interests of the company, shareholders, employees, community, state, U.S. longer term. Never asks if business as is will eventually fail and hurt all these people. Administered by young lawyers with no economic sense just what the law says.
Since Yahoo is in decline, MM knows nothing, those jobs are likely to be lost in any event, just a matter of time. Merger with some company that can run the business will save some of them. Writer knows nothing about business--companies have to be successful to sustain jobs!
Just like Energy Conversion Devices--it ran up and was loved by all analysts touting it until it went bankrupt!
Take a look at VA bidding process. They created a lot of shareholder value over the past few weeks. It did not take them months and years to get a deal! Illustrates the difference between a motived management for shareholders and one trying to entrench itself and destroy value via incompetence!
Here is what a tender for shares should look like if they permit such bid:
BABA 384 MM shares-$30 B (BABA upward potential to $38 B short term)
Yahoo Japan -- $8 B
Yahoo Core/Cash $5 B
Total $43 B / 946 MM shares = $45/Share X 5% -10% premium (hidden value) -$47-50/sh.
Tax issue can be handled via BABA bid or subsequent repackaging of assets and a tax-free spin or exchange.
When they should be entertaining bids for all of Yahoo shares. Bid for core will still Leave BOD and MM in control of what they will do with the after tax sale proceeds --scary thought given how they can blow money!
Also Obama agencies that release economic reports especially jobs--all made up along with Federal Reserve reports on inflation.
