When I was in college, I loved reading the Wall Street Journal. I remember the section on how the company’s valuation of the stock of Yahoo was way off and what would happen if the company was acquired by Facebook. I remember being quite fascinated by the fact that a company that I had never heard of was valued at $14 billion.

In the new Yahoo Finance, you can see how the stock of the company is being valued at 14 billion dollars. And all that money is available for a purchase of $14.16 billion in Yahoo stock. So Yahoo is valued at 14 billion dollars, meaning Yahoo is worth 14 times their current market cap.

And what would happen if Yahoo were to be sold to Facebook? If Facebook were to buy Yahoo, then the company would be worth approximately 17 billion. And if Facebook bought Yahoo, then the company would be worth approximately 100 times their current market cap. That is to say, if Facebook bought Yahoo, the company would be worth 15,000 times their current market cap. That is a price that would make Yahoo worth nothing. Yahoo would go into debt and be worthless.

Facebook is expected to acquire Yahoo in a hostile takeover. This would mean that Yahoo would be worth roughly $2 billion, and Facebook would be worth $15 billion. And because of the price difference, Yahoo and Facebook would be very different companies. Facebook is likely to become the leader in mobile advertising, but Yahoo would be the leader in web advertising. Yahoo’s dominance in web advertising would make it worth a lot more than Facebook.

If Facebook acquires Yahoo, it will be like the end of the internet. A new Web 2.0 company would be created and dominated by Yahoo. The internet would be nothing like it was before. It would be a bunch of sites, each with its own rules, and the internet would be largely controlled by Yahoo.

Yahoo would be a very different place. A bunch of people would control all of the sites. With a small army of people running the sites, the entire internet would be run by Yahoo (and possibly other social network sites). Facebook would be a subsidiary of Yahoo. The only way that Yahoo would be able to become a major player in the internet would be to acquire a major competitor like Facebook. If Yahoo does acquire Facebook, it will become a major player.

Yahoo will become a very different company because it has to be a lot more secretive. Yahoo will still be very powerful, but only by virtue of its ability to dominate the internet. Yahoo has no real competitors in the way of major players who can compete with it.

Facebook is one of the biggest social networks in the world. Its power is enormous, but its reach is relatively modest. If Yahoo does acquire Facebook, it will have no competition. Yahoo will also be a lot more secretive, for starters. You can’t just ask people for money. And since Facebook is one of the biggest social networks in the world, a lot of the information on Facebook will be confidential.

Yahoo has been going around town talking to everyone who will listen since it has been acquired by Microsoft. Its not just about the money. Yahoo has no competitors in the way of major players who can compete with it. Everyone on Yahoo is so interconnected now that almost anyone has access to information on everyone else. Yahoo is the very definition of a monopoly.

Yahoo’s problems are that it’s a monopoly because they control the information that everyone wants to share. In order to compete with Facebook, Microsoft has to have a real social network.
