I was reading in the newspaper the other day that someone basically gave yahoo about 43 billion in money I think it was in an attempt to buy out the company or something to that sort? I dont know for certain. I'm sure someone can clarify my story or i'll check the newspaper I read it in tomorrow to give a more accurate discussion topic :P But anyways. Yahoo's stocks sored 53% in ONE DAY or so i've been told, and Google's stock dropped 8%. Good god those people that invested in Yahoo must be dancing on a table or something.. and those googlians might be throwing hot coffee on their faces..

The correct figure is $44.6 billion, with a "b".

By the way, it's not too late. If you have the money I suggest investing in Yahoo or a smaller search engine because If microsoft tried once and didn't succeed, they're bound to try again either on yahoo or an even smaller search engine..

The amount of dancing that Yahoo investors are doing probably depends on when they invested. Yahoo stock closed out the day at $28.38 a share. Just as recently as last October the stock spiked up to $33.63, and it was higher than it is now for quite a bit of early 2007.
