It is not news that there has been a lot of talk about an acquisition of Yahoo by MSN, but perhaps there is another suitor that makes sense? After all, there is another media company that could benefit from Yahoo's digital distribution network. Brad Berens of iMedia thinks that an appropriate suitor may just be Sony...hmmm. Not a bad idea!
July 18 (Bloomberg) -- The chance Yahoo! Inc. will put
itself up for sale has increased after the most-visited U.S. Web
site lowered its revenue forecast, according to Stanford Group.
Microsoft Corp. is a candidate to buy the company, analyst
Clayton Moran said.
A Yahoo-Microsoft union ``could be a significant challenger
to Google and could increase Microsoft's competitiveness,'' Moran
said in an interview.
