Are You Getting Microhoo Fatigue Too?

Posted by: Rob Hof on March 18, 2008

You know Yahoo doesn’t have much left on the table when it trots out a board presentation from December—well before Microsoft’s unsolicited offer—saying it’s going to do better than everyone expects. You know it even more when analysts view this as a negative, because it indicates Yahoo’s many rumored deals aren’t going to happen (as we really knew already). Actually, as Henry Blodget points out, the assumptions are not completely unreasonable. But with what has to be a challenging first quarter closing in just a couple of weeks, when results will be scrutinized even more closely than usual, you wonder if this is another Hail Jerry pass. Some investors, at least, clearly think so.

I just read your article about the potential Yahoo/Microsoft merger and thought you might be interested in a new blog post I wrote about some of the employee exodus going on over at Yahoo these days http://blog.bincsearch.com/?p=153 . We’re pretty tapped into the flow of talent out of Yahoo and thought the world might find this of interest. If you’re ever looking for information that might be helpful for future articles, please feel free to reach out to me anytime.
