  • hold your horse and keep on holding YHOO or buy more at this price if you can, eventually YAHOO and BABA will knock the socks off to all the naysayers and short. AMAZON has lots of cheerleaders most of them are the naysayers on this yahoo board.

    I bought few K of shares today...I think FCAU is ready to jump much higher if market conditions will improve. I also believe Sergio M. should do some PR with the Financial Media and not about the cars I think more about Investing in the company.

    in case some of you don't know what's a reverse trust---
    A Reverse Morris is used when a parent company has a subsidiary (sub-company) that it wants to sell in a tax-efficient manner. The parent company completes a spin-off of a subsidiary to the parent company's shareholders. Under Internal Revenue Code section 355, this could be tax-free if certain criteria are met. The former subsidiary (now owned by the parent company's shareholders, but separate from the parent company) then merges with a target company to create a merged company. Under Internal Revenue Code section 368 (a)(1)(A), this could be largely tax-free if the former subsidiary is considered the "buyer" of the target company. The former subsidiary is the "buyer" if its shareholders (also the original parent company's shareholders) own more than 50% of the merged company. Thus, the former subsidiary will usually have a bigger market capitalization than the target company. The target company's managers rarely run the merged company.

    Posted Oct 27, I was right on the money with with DOW @18000 plus, but not accurate for YHOO share price it should be $60..the problem is so much negativity from the media shills controlled by the shorts. I will still say yahoo will get to $60 as soon soon alibaba shares will spin-off to YHOO shareholders.

    Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer
    It’s been a great year of returns for Yahoo’s investments. On Friday, the company nabbed another windfall on its investments when its spin-out, Hortonworks, became a public company.
    Yahoo retained a 17%+ stake (7,572,174 shares), according to forms filed with the SEC.
    The stock is trading at about $25 today, well above the initial $16 IPO price and is worth $189 million. That’s a nice $68 million increase for Yahoo’s investment portfolio in just two days.
    That doesn’t come close to the company’s major investment win this year: Alibaba. It cashed out of $5 billion during the Alibaba IPO, and held onto another 400+ million shares, worth over $40 billion today.
    Yahoo isn’t the only enterprise investor in Hortonworks that did well with the IPO. Teradata’s 7% stake is worth about $72 million and Hewlett-Packard’s 5% stake is worth about $51 million. Investors Benchmark (Peter Fenton) and Index Ventures (Mike Volpi) also scored nicely with their firms’ 16% and 8% stakes respectively.
    As for people, the biggest windfall went to CEO Robert Bearden, who joined the company in 2012. He has a nearly 6% stake, worth about $60 million today.
    It’s unclear how well any of the founders did, including founding CEO Eric Baldeschwieler. He became CTO after Bearden was installed and had left by August, 2013. The company disclosedin an earlier filing that he had about 3.4 million shares, but he was not to be found in later regulatory forms at all, so he’s probably sold enough shares to take him below the 5% ownership threshhold. (We’ve reached out to him and asked.) If he still had that full stake, it would be worth nearly $85 million.
    None of the other Hortonworks founders were listed #$%$ or more shareholders. But the engineering team still looked extremely happy on IPO day:

    I bought more at $10.50 I also believe in the new CEO S.M. He will Increase value of FIAT, CHRYSLER, FERRARI, MASERATI, ALFA ROMEO and whatever Fiat owns in construction equipment at least 3 to 4 fold within a year.
