I sense a possible attempt to execute a (not very) cunning plan.
Yeah, I was so surprised when I read that this morning that I took a sip of my coffee!
Yahoo sucks anyways.
It seems that the CEO of Yahoo shot himself in the foot, as it was he who
unwisely refused the offer that Microsoft made and not the other way around.

Plan being to snap Yahoo up in a couple months anyway at a much lower price after it's stock tanks?
I agree, not very cunning but will probably work.
Indeed. If shareholders feel that they may otherwise lose a bundle ... I'm just speculating here of course.
You speculate wisely (as usual). Yahoo management was already on the ropes and will be hard pressed to come up with justification for scotching a deal that was already pretty generous. The shareholders are likely pitching hissy fits over this.
Well, someone made decent money off the increase in the stock prices ? Maybe Microsoft needs to be investigated for manipulating the market ?

Yahoo still held onto some/a good portion of that per share increase.
Increase? Yahoo's share price has decreased by 15%.
I think he's talking about the run-up that happened when MSFT announced the deal. Yahoo stock became overvalued, then dropped today.
"Exit, pursued by a bear. "
Well, I'm not a bear, but I've probably flirted with you too much, especially given that I'm not in need of online sex (which doesn't really exist for me anyway). I suppose I like the way you describe yourself slowly, like taking off your clothes very slowly. But I will stop verbally oozing all over the place. (not that you were referring to me anyway.)
now, back to Microsoft, which is so unbearable to have to think about. The big Google headquarters is around the corner from me. I use their mirrors to look at my bulge a lot, because I always think these petri dish types that are greenhoused by 'Google culture', to use the vulgar term, are so aphid-like--especially when I see them outside the building sucking their ciggies and wishing they could do Bulge in the window-mirrors instead of having to work on 'Google Culture'. yuck...
