HOMEWORK

It’s an incredibly frustrating situation. Clearly she is not being able to provide any value to shareholders at all. And all of the rise in stock prices has just tracked the rise of Alibaba. So I think the real question and the question I pose to people is: where do they go from here? And I can’t get an answer from anybody. So I think it’s time that they just cut up the company, sell off the parts and accept that Yahoo’s last days have come.

Wow. And is this despite the fact that people do say that there are bits in there that, that have value, that do well…I mean if you think of Yahoo Sports, is there no way forward or is this just something that has to live under the roof of another company. If so, who would but those parts?

Well, first of all, you brought up, I think the best point which is they have great franchises in sports and in finance. And they need to develop those into mobile applications that people use. And they can really leverage the content they have with new…let’s say video content to make some really nice standalone apps for finance and sports for example. But I think their core search business is part of the problem. It’s a decline business. Their search results aren’t that good. And I think it’s a perfect thing for Microsoft to buy it. You know, Microsoft tried to buy Yahoo many years ago, and they turned it down and as I said, I think that was the big mistake other than the value of Alibaba rising. So I think that Microsoft might get a great deal for the search and email assets. They could spin off the other portal assets into another company or sell them. But anyway you look at it, you are cutting up the company and you are selling off the parts. And that’s it.

Yep. Ross, Marissa Mayer, was she just a test with an impossible job for a company that has sort of already seen its stay or was this a strategic error on her part?

Strategic errors on her part. I mean look at Tim Armstrong at AOL. AOL was a legacy business, very similar. And he took the business and he turned it around and sold it to Horizon and made his main shareholder great money. So I blamed management 100%. I mean she’s made one bad move after another. Everything that I’ve heard about her in her style, it’s just not can do sort of getting results. In my mind, I think a loyalty-test product people end up being in CEO positions, they are not qualified for it. And I think that’s the case here. She’s not qualified to be a CEO, you know, unless she’s gonna run for president and say what a great job she did, you know.

Yeah, well, I was assuming you are referencing Carly Fiorina for people and our audience who may not understand that reference, that would be something, wouldn’t it? I mean, it is…listen, this is a rapidly changing landscape. There are many who are sort of struggling to find a way forward as everything, sort of lines blur everywhere. Do you think with all the pressure coming, that they can continue on spinning off this core internet business? I mean, what would that look like or are the forces are already sort of working against that?

Well, you know, the stock markets are a kind place and businesses are tough environment where there’s so much competition in there space. So I think they had their moment and they missed it. That’s why I’m saying, I think the only solution is cutting up the company and selling off the parts. I don’t see a way out from that and I think about this stuff a lot. And, and you know, I do this with all the tech companies as well -- what’s the future? And what is the future for Yahoo? When you ask yourself that, and you think about Yahoo and in 90s and they are heading, you go: “God, this company is…it’s gone a long way.” But sometimes they just end, and you know, RCA created the television. Where is it today?

Yeah, exactly. It’s hard to sort of reconcile with those when you are such a big brand and you still have all that recognition.

Yeah.

You talked about Microsoft maybe buying search and email. Let’s get back to that sport and finance, that part of the company that does seem successful. Who, who would be a potential buyer there? What would happen to that, especially for all those people work here using those by the way?

Well, if I’m ESPN and Disney, I’ll buy Yahoo Sports tomorrow because that’s the big issue. As Disney as they need a standalone streaming app for sports. And if they can merge all the data that Yahoo has in the Fantasy Leagues with ESPN content, I think it’s a great standalone app. So please, Bob Iger, I hope you are watching and you aren’t in a foreign country right now. This is a great move. And in finance, I think one of the many different companies that provide financial information like a media company, like any of the major media companies could buy the finance site, and do very, very well, adding that into their standalone app. So I think those properties have a lot of value.
