Yahoo Spokesperson Swisher Denies eBay, Rejects MSFT

No official response from Yahoo about yesterday’s eBay and Microsoft rumours, but two unofficial ones through Valley blogger Kara Swisher:

  • Yahoo takeover of eBay ridiculous
  • Yahoo only be interested in a Microsoft offer if the stock really tanked. Our question: What is Yahoo’s definition of “tank”?

We agree regarding eBay. We also agree that Yahoo wouldn’t take a dime-a-dozen 20% premium offer, especially over the current stock price. And, as shareholders, we would vastly prefer to see Yahoo get its act together again instead of selling out, because a straight Microsoft-Yahoo takeover would be a disaster. But as Microsoft continues to flail on the Internet, a Murdoch-like pre-emptive bid is not beyond the realm of possibility.
