wtf was that before the wires had it?
Someone always has it before the wires.
you mean you dont have pre wire info? Do you also trade with a computer made of stone?
yeah, but they are not supposed to trade on it
Haha, like they never do? They always do!
Yang & Co. are fucking idiots. Greedy fools.
They are greedy, not idiot. They don't want the deal to go through. Yahoo executives ranks near the top of highest paying executives. So there is the conflict of interest. If they let this deal to go through, they lost their jobs and pay. I believe, beside Yang still own a little of Yhoo, none of the others executives and boards members own any interest in the company.
Im glad MSFT walked away, Thank you for walking away. Now we can finally stop hearing about this possible merger.
YAHOO SHOULD HAD TAKEN THE DEAL. WHAT THE HELL WERE THEY THINKING. Stock will be back in the mid teens, how greedy do they have to be. $40 billion+......
It was never the money for Yang, it was the pride.
Yahoo has never found its niche ever since Google came on the scene. Any economist knows that the offer Yahoo recieved was the absolute best they could get for a long while, especially if they don't pull a miracle (something new and innovative).
briefing trader had the news right as it was beginning to tank. i'm not going to bother to format it....you can look thru it and figure it out.
12-Jun-08 15:00 ET In Play Yahoo! confirms Microsoft talks have concluded (23.64 -2.54) -Update : Co confirms that discussions with Microsoft (MSFT) regarding a potential transaction--whether for an acquisition of all of Yahoo! or a partial acquisition--have concluded. The conclusion of discussions follows numerous meetings and conversations with Microsoft regarding a number of transaction alternatives, including a meeting between Yahoo! and Microsoft on June 8 in which Chairman Roy Bostock and other independent Board members from Yahoo! participated. At that meeting, Microsoft representatives stated unequivocally that Microsoft is not interested in pursuing an acquisition of all of Yahoo!, even at the price range it had previously suggested. With respect to an acquisition of Yahoo!'s search business alone that Microsoft had proposed, Yahoo!'s Board of Directors has determined that such a transaction would not be consistent with the co's view of the converging search and display marketplaces, would leave the co without an independent search business that it views as critical to its strategic future and would not be in the best interests of Yahoo! stockholders.
