Microsoft (MSFT) has just announced a 44.6 Billion $ bid for Yahoo (YHOO)!!!!
Thats offering 31$ per YHOO share. YHOO closed Thursday at 19 / share.
This should be huge in many ways!
Tech, of course has been waiting for a move like this,
BUT more importantly:
WHEN stocks sink low enough...
BUYERS come in!

This is what makes FREE MARKET CAPITALISM work!

Microsoft offers 44 Billion for Yahoo

If this goes through, do you think that Bill Gates will be promoted to diety status?  He is already pretty much in " The Great and Powerful Oz" territory, so I was just wondering?

Microsoft offers 44 Billion for Yahoo

History has shown that money has gone from pennies having purchasing power to larger coins, then dollars and all inbetween up to a thousand/thousands, and then it quickly went to a million and even more quickly it has become billions....then there will be trillions and on and on - we will have to invent new names for all the amounts the future will bring.  Any positive news for the economy is most welcome, indeed!

Micro-hoo is a good suggestion!

If the offer is accepted (and it will be), should Yahoo change its name?

How 'bout...

Micro-hoo?

Dow futures move to + 150 on the news!

Yahoo has got to accept the Microsoft offer IMHO.
