    Yahoo (YHOO) denies it plans to fire 20% of its overall staff, but doesn't rule out more targeted cuts. Sources have alternately suggested that Yahoo may cut either 20% of its overall workforce, or 20% of the employees in its 7,000-strong consumer products group.

    Among this year's most outrageous CEO perks: $772,000 to cover the underwater mortgage on a home sale for Delta Air Lines' (DAL) Richard Anderson, $1.4M in security services for Oracle's (ORCL) Larry Ellison, $1.3M in job relocation expenses for Boston Scientific's (BSX) Ray Elliot. And there's plenty more.

    Yahoo (YHOO) may be willing to pay $3B-$4B to scoop up online coupon company Groupon, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea. Although Yahoo is itching for an acquisition, to pay that kind of money for a company whose business model is as easy to duplicate as Groupon's would be "very silly," Motley Fool says.

    Sources claim Yahoo (YHOO) is making industry veteran Wayne Powers head of its crucial North American ad sales unit, which has lacked a boss since March. Powers is currently president of Time's media group (TWX). With this move, Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz fills a "very big hole in the middle of the key money-making organization."

    Yahoo (YHOO +3.3%) shares climb on reports that private equity firms including KKR join a list of firms that want to buy out the company, but Paul La Monica warns not to believe all the hype. Carol Bartz seems more interested in boosting revenues than selling, and even if she has a change of heart, a host of factors would make it nearly impossible to pull off a deal.

    Troubled AOL (AOL) has hired financial advisers to offer it guidance with some sort of proposed relationship with Yahoo (YHOO), but no concrete plans have emerged yet, say sources. Potential joint scenarios include the two firms merging their online businesses, or raising money through private equity investment or asset sales to pay a dividend.

    The buzz continues about a possible tie-up between AOL (AOL) and Yahoo (YHOO -0.8%), but the media reports may be making a mountain out of a molehill: Sources say Yahoo isn't in active discussions with AOL, while skeptics note any tie-up between the two firms would be immensely complicated.

    Yahoo (YHOO): "We delivered a solid quarter with good display advertising revenue growth, big gains in operating income, and margins that were double what they were last year. Because we recognize the tremendous value of our assets, we also dramatically stepped up our stock repurchases. We've now bought back more than 7% of the company's stock this year alone."
