Microsoft Trying to Buy Yahoo?

February 1st, 2008 - by Brett Derricott - Salt Lake City, Utah

Wow. This is big news. Microsoft just bid $44.6 billion dollars (half cash, half stock) for the beleaguered Yahoo!

If this deal goes through, this puts the new combined company, let’s call it Microhoo!, in a much stronger 2nd place to Google in terms of online search.

Hope you own some Yahoo! stock today. It’s up 44% at the moment.
