Yahoo to be bought buy Microsoft

Discussion in 'Yahoo' started by qwestcommunications, May 4, 2007.

    As I predicted some time last year, it seems Microsoft is interested in buying out Yahoo for some $50 billion. I guess this is the only way Microsoft sees competiting with Google on the net.

    I think the deal would be bad, some of us rank good in one search engine, and poorly in the other

    hmm...wonder how that would enhance the messenger systems as well...

    this would be one hell of a bold move to try and catch up to google...

    So if you can't beat them try to buy them out. I learn more business savy stuff everyday on DP.

    Now if microsoft can buy out all the other lesser SE's they may have a chance ... right? :D

    Yeah I just read it on Yahoo Front page

    I think it said Microsoft will pay $50 billion. And Yahoo market capitalization was $38 last year. Should be very interesting to see what will take place.

    Google will still be number one. It's hard to compete with such a huge company.

    $50 billion isnt that much for Microsoft realistically. As for the buyout, I mentioned it in "The Yahoo Endgame"

    You never know when Google will be interested and jump into the fray as well. Google can easily up the price to $60b to force out Microsoft.
