Blockbuster and Circuit City - Two companies that will both be out of business soon.
Microsoft and Yahoo - This is off. Don't worry about Microsoft, but Google will eat Yahoo's lunch.
Bank of America and Country Wide Financial - This is good for virtually everyone except BoA, I think. Maybe they'll turn it around.
JP Morgan and Bear Stearns - This is simply a travesty. I wish I had a government endorsed escape clause for every bad decision I've ever made. Welcome to the USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of Rich White Men, Inc. Pitiful.
Isn't Yahoo using Google to account for some of their search options or something like that. I'm all for Yahoo getting it's lunch eaten by Google. I can understand why Yahoo wanted to get more than $33/share for the buyout offer that Microsoft offered. Microsoft really felt the company wasn't worth any more or any less, however they couldn't meet somewhere in the middle and the deal fell through. It's a good move for Microsoft because they basically told Yahoo to prove that their stock is worth more than $33/share. Stock prices have fallen a little under $5/share this morning for Yahoo, while Microsoft's stock has risen some. Microsoft will probably come back to Yahoo when the share value gets under $20/share (some speculation that the share prices can get this low), and offer them another buyout for like $25 or 26/share. Microsoft can obviously survive because they have office, the marvelous XP operating system, and the new Vista. Yahoo just has their music stream and a search engine. I don't know if the company is invested in anything outside of those two. I'm looking forward to seeing Yahoo stock prices start ticking down below $20 in the near future.
Google is gonna work Yahoo so badly when Apple releases the 3G IPhone this summer. That is one more thing that Google has been paired up with that will be a huge success. I'm waiting for Apple to pullback a few dollars before I buy some shares, but over the last 2 weeks it doesn't look like it wants to pull back at all. I so should have bought this stock 3 weeks ago when it was $150/share.
