Fred,

Ron who is more in tune with this stuff, feels that they can.  We met with Yahoo execs on several occasions way back when...I thought they should have takien Microsofts offer, as well as EBay's offer which they rejected.  A

So often the case with CEOs. Happens all the time

In response to your question, there are those who are far wiser who might have a good answer. Sorta like a seller holding out and not taking the first (and likely best) offer

The issue is the internet is changing, and they don't see it. I think Yahoo will not come back, just like AOL.

Like many home sellers that turn down the first offer, Yahoo made a big mistake and I doubt they will ever be on top again. 

But they will have a place in the history books, we all remember the contribution they made to the internet in the early years.

Yahoo got about 5 B cash, their hdqtr in Santa Clara will be a huge housing complex.

Baba, and Yahoo finacial, Jpn. => big $$

Income is online advertisement which is like $600M/yr.

They will garage sale the rest of the non-producing crap, 100M eMail accounts....

They blew it big time... Just like reluctant home seller I am stuck with.

Some guys at Yahoo must be pretty bummed, and some guys at Microsoft must feel like they dodged a bullet.  Not sure that Verizon can revise it.

I'd hope so.  Yahoo RE was a good source for a while, not it pulls from other sites and isn't worth advertising on (IMO).

Hi Fred - I think it's a natural pairing with AOL, which they bought a while back - maybe they're working on a time machine too.

Is this an example that can be used in real estate with the sellers who dismiss an initial offer because they think they can get more if they wait just a bit more?

Fred, I saw that last night ... only time will tell ... needless to say they are competing against some Giants. Maybe they have a niche up their sleeves. 

Those Golden Parachutes are something else.  Reward them to go away because they could not do their jobs effectively.
