Robert Scobleizer believes Microsoft is the real “loser” after bailing out of the acquisition of Yahoo. I disagree, I mean, you can’t dispute the facts. Investors invest because of longevity and ROI, and clearly Yahoo missed their mark.
Yahoo tanks downward (-14.16%), as Microsoft holds steady (-0.1%), and Time Warner rises (+10.21).
It appears as Yahoo and Time Warner engage in talks more, investors support the idea of Yahoo acquiring the Internet unit from Time Warner. Microsoft holds it almost dead even despite withdrawing their offer. Investors obviously don’t think that was a wise move by Yahoo.
