Yahoo’ stock has gone from $15 to $25 in the past year. Why would that happen? All Yahoo does is delete my questions on Yahoo Answers.
The reason for the rise in the Yahoo stock price is because they are focusing on their core products. Which basically means they delete Matt Maldre’s questions on Yahoo Answers. They’ve deleted 27% of my questions. Up goes the stock price!
To think back in Yahoo’s acquisition days, I was considering buying Yahoo stock. They bought three of my favorite services: flickr my favorite photo service upcoming.org my favorite events site, and delicious my favorite bookmarking site. Those are three core parts of my life. Photos, events, and website links. Yahoo bought all three in the same year!
I thought Yahoo was gonna be the best company ever!
The price of the Yahoo stock during each acquisition:
$31.62 March 20, 2005 flickr
$33.57 October 4, 2005 upcoming.org
$40.08 December 12, 2005 delicious
By December 2005 their stock rose up to $40. But it has slowly dropped and has never seen $40 since. Thankfully I did not buy. But who knows, maybe if Yahoo keeps deleting more of my questions, their stock price will continue to rise.
