    Yahoo shares are sure to take a big hit. But I don't see how Microsoft can afford to buy Yahoo at such inflated prices. Probably a good decision on MS' part.

    No one win, but Yahoo lost big time. :faint: :faint: :faint:

    Yeah, especially the speculators who bought up Yahoo shares in expectation of a big windfall. :mrgreen:

    I think its nice not to see Yahoo fall under the net of the MS monopoly ;)

    I really wasn't sure how I felt about the merger. In some ways it seemed like it would have been beneficial for Yahoo but I don't always like the way MS screws things up. If I were the CEO I would have taken the offer.

    I would loved to see them merging but that didn't work out.Nobody won here, i think.

    I felt they were pushing for too high a price. It would have been nice for their shareholders to hit such a high price but it's really not foreseeable that Yahoo will hit such a high share value in the short-to-medium term.
