IP banker raises estimates and touts the stock, dumb retail buyers push stock higher and then IP banker makes money from yet another stock offering to idiot individual stock buyers! Even larger scam than Energy Conversion Devices!
Yahoo should get a premium bid. All business, communication, media-news, finance, social contacts, etc. have moved online to cell phones, and all types of computers. GOOG is the dominate player now but Face Book, Amazon, T, VZ, and many others, foreign techs, are all trying to catch-up and get into this action. The best way to do it is to go big immediately, invest and innovate taking on GOOG! Yahoo is last available platform with a large customer base that can get others into the game! Its a high risk, big reward business but for many Yahoo is the last chance to compete for a piece of the future!
Its an election year--what else can they say when they want to also raise interest rates to show how this BS economy is "so strong." I believe the publicly-traded larger retail companies' sales numbers not the governments made-up numbers.
From a shareholder perspective, I thought that was her continuing legacy statement to shareholders! She has the chance to be one of the worst CEOs of all time! A strong and lasting message to other brain dead BODs everywhere that the selection of a CEO should not be based on gender but talent alone.
Anyone know? How long can MM stretch this out and make buyers go away? Seems simple to me, ask for bids look at them and make a decision. But not with MM and her brain dead BODs. They turn it into a complex mess paying millions to investment bankers and lawyers and other advisors--typical Yahoo value destroying moves! MM a total incompetent!
when?--please advise. It appears to be the same run as Energy Conversion Devices had and then bankruptcy. All hype and nothing of substance but it sounds good, so good ECD was recommended by many analysts including D-wade Cramer. It went from obscurity to $80 plus a share--not gone! TSLA When...?
Dummy-up--I'm talking about the Saudis taking the 5% shares back post-IPO, hard to figure out for some I guess that didn't know they nationalized 100% previously from the oil majors.
To its shareholders about what is going on. Instead, partial fact partial speculation from a news story about second round bidding and its timing. Incredibly poor but that is what they tell me about MM and Yahoo BOD when it comes to valuing Yahoo's shareholders. Don't they ever release direct news?
Trying to drive commodities lower via BS about raising rates. Spread that rumor around while shorting gold futures. Notice the markets are starting not to believe them. They are playing a dangerous game and at best a short term one.
Enough said...Full disclosure: Gastwirth owns Tesla stock. This product has no buyers other than rich left which have been tapped out. Gasoline cheaper cars will dominate and majors will all have cheaper electrics for the few that want to buy one of these inconvenient vehicles to show off how left they are and have money to burn on a second useless or weekend car.
MM & BOD not keeping the shareholders/owners of Yahoo informed. They let news leak to the press, Starboard shareholders given an inside look via BOD positions and all other shareholders treated like they don't matter. Yahoo BOD & MM think they own the company. I have never seen such disregard for shareholders or a sale process conducted this way.
Probably playing with her toy dolls or playing Dorothy again--while BOD looks on like the Wizard.
Needs to disclose their sales process, what is being sold and when it will be completed. Letting things leak out to the press is irresponsible--typical of MM and Yahoo BODs--mismanaged.
Fed and related banksters taking mining stocks down early today but they can't keep them there for long, as gold continues to rise. They only wish they could better influence the Chinese gold price quotes and figure out how to make a plausible argument why gold should go lower in a negative interest rate environment.
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...
