Yahoo

The Stock Market is Unkind

October 22, 2014

Yahoo made $6.3 billion on the Alibaba stock IPO. It's quarterly revenue was $1.094 billion of which more than $200 million in mobile ad revenue. Investors want it to stop making acquisitions (but $3 bill in cash means it will buy something) and to merge with AOL.

McDonald's revenue plunged 30%.

We need more women in telecom/tech*. The industry took a step closer today when Marissa Mayer, VP of Google, became CEO of Yahoo! She joins Meg Whitman, CEO of Hewlett-Packard Co.; Virginia Rometty, CEO of IBM; Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook; and Larissa Herda, CEO of tw telecom.

Nothing but Headlines: DPI, Caps, Clearwire

April 24, 2009

I'm seeing a lot of news in our space but not enough time to cover it all or analyze it, so here's just the headlines:

DPI (deep packet inspection) by cable being investigated by Congress. It scares the crap out of Boucher (ARS). Cox, Comcast, NebuAd  = new privacy law being debated (NYTimes).

Broadband download caps: in the news all week because apparently TWC said that without caps, they won't upgrade any more. Well, I have news for them: if they don't upgrade they will lose customers.



Will Sprint Sell Nextel?

August 11, 2008

According to an article on Y! news, Sprint may be trying to sell Nextel, but not without hurdles. "Sprint faces pressure from the FCC to relinquish a key chunk of iDen wireless airwaves for emergency communications networks." To me that means, spin it off as a public-private safety network.

Although analysts suggest that Motorola has left the iDen technology behind, NII uses the iDen network in Latin America.

No Holds Barred Proxy Fight

May 28, 2008

Well, it looks like I will get to see a real live proxy fight up close. (Well, as close as the web will get me.) Carl Icahn has sent a letter to the Yahoo! Board about this actions and disappointment. Icahn has already bought 59M shares of Y! stock and wants to buy $2.5B -- then sell it to Microsoft for a quick buck.
