Microsoft (MSFT) is reportedly in talks to buy Yammer, a top provider of private enterprise social networking sites, and could end up paying over $1B. Yammer would join an extensive list of Microsoft solutions that enable business collaboration, including SharePoint, Exchange, Lync, and Skype. Jive Software (JIVE), which competes with Yammer and has already been the subject of M&A speculation, could trade higher on the report. Salesforce.com (CRM) also competes with Yammer via its Chatter product. (previous)

    Jive, already overvalued, non profitable for the less for two years, should trade lower with a stronger competitor MICROSOFT/YAMMER, that added to the lock-up of last june 9.
