More than 3 years after shooting down Microsoft's (MSFT) $33/share bid, Jerry Yang still appears bent on maintaining control of Yahoo (YHOO). In a story resembling an earlier report, a source claims Yang wants a deal in which Yahoo would issue new stock to PE firms friendly to him, and use the proceeds to buy back shares from the public. Yahoo is up 2.9% today on the latest round of investment/buyout buzz (I, II, III).

    Yang is looking out for himself, not for the majority of shareholders.

    The man is an idiot. Shareholders would be better off if I were in charge and I know nothing about the business.

    Yahoo was never anything special. They started as a hand-entered listing of popular websites. They were in exactly right place at the right time. They never did anything innovative and most of their users only stay due to inertia.
