    With a Republican controlled House and Senate, there is no way the Baker Hughes deal does not get done.

    Also his Linkedin Profile states he is the Marketing Manager. There are many other references to this fact, so my post was not erroneous, but you may want to do more research before you attempt to discredit someones post from now on.

  • Profire Energy - A Classic Pump And Dump, Sell Before You Get Burned, Stock Worth $1.00 [View article]
    Actually, I believe you are confusing the titles. Here is just one reference:

    LINDON, Utah, July 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Profire Energy, Inc. (Nasdaq:PFIE), a technology company which manufactures, installs and services burner management systems and other combustion technologies for the oil and gas industry, is expanding its marketing, sales and service teams. It is also nearing completion on a number of operational initiatives, such as its Lindon, Utah warehouse expansion and the addition of another contract manufacturer for its manufacturing of selected US products.

    I got out of PFIE shortly after their hiring of a new Marketing Manager, Clayton Bird. After doing my research, Bird was just a year removed from college where he didn't even manage in marketing and was just a waiter at P.F. Changs. Why management hired someone with no experience in the oil and gas field and had no experience in marketing was enough for me to get out of this one.

  • Yahoo: Ignore The Headlines, The Q3 '14 Results Were Bad [View article]
    Wondering why you didn't make any reference to mobile as that is where the company is focusing on. Your synopsis seems a bit one sided to me as you also left out the move toward targeted ads, increased content, Tumbler revenue, streamlining offices by way of closures, staff reductions based on performance, hiring tax experts to get the most value out of remaining BABA shares, and so on and so on.
    It is easy to cherry pick graphs and input a negative spin, the trick to writing a good article is showing the whole picture and be unbiased.

  • 5 Ways Yahoo Could Spend Its $7 Billion Of Alibaba Money [View article]
    I think she should buy the WWE for $2 billion. Why? There is an established fan base and a network already in place. The demographics of the WWE fan base would work in broadening and strengthening "eye count", and that would raise ad revenue.

    The WWE is bleeding money right now with the WWE Network, but if Yahoo could add more content than just old wrestling matches. Some of the WWE wrestlers like John Cena, and Hulk Hogan are some of the most recognized people in the world.

  • Citing a jump in complaints about hacked accounts, BT is abandoning Yahoo Mail (YHOO) as the e-mail platform for its broadband services in favor of home-grown BT Mail. 6M Yahoo Mail accounts will be migrated. Meanwhile, Tumblr continues to roll out fresh ad formats. A month after adding sponsored posts (similar to Facebook's Sponsored Stories) to its mobile apps, Tumblr has brought them to its Web dashboard; initial partners include Ford, AT&T, and Viacom. Marissa Mayer has stated Tumblr could see premium and retargeted ads, and Tumblr CEO David Karp has touted his service's potential to enable "creative brand advertising" that breaks traditional display ad molds. [View news story]
    As a shareholder of Yahoo and a believer in what Ms Mayer is doing with the company, I do also believe security should be a major focus for concern. As a single parent and a paying member of a couple dating sites, I find it very alarming when one of the first messages I receive is for me to accept them and contact them in Yahoo messaging. Major red flags.
