More details on the firms sniffing around Yahoo (YHOO): Almost every big U.S. private-equity firm is "knee-deep" in working a buyout: Silver Lake, Blackstone (BX), TPG, KKR, Bain, Carlyle, H&F, Providence Equity and Warburg Pincus. With a $16-$18/share price being thrown around, it'll likely take two to four firms to support a bid that would reach past $20B; Eyes are on key stakeholders Alibaba (ALBCF.PK) and Microsoft (MSFT).
