In spite of weeks of rumors about a Yahoo (YHOO) sale (I, II, III, IV), the company might remain independent. Sources tell Bloomberg Yahoo is "leaning toward" merely selling its Asian assets, and distributing the proceeds to shareholders through a dividend or stock buyback.

    Someone should remind him its no longer "his" company. When he decided to go public he lost the right to run it as his.


    He has cost shareholders 10's of billions of dollars and has no business sitting on the board or having any influence on its actions as a company.
