    Verizon to pay $4.8 billion for Yahoo’s core business

    New York Times
    Yahoo was the front door to the web for an early generation of internet users, and its services still attract a billion visitors a month. But the internet is an unforgiving place for yesterday’s great idea, and on Sunday, Yahoo reached the end of the line as an independent company. The board of the Silicon Valley company agreed to sell Yahoo’s core internet operations and land holdings to Verizon for $4.8 billion, according to people briefed on the matter, who were not authorised to speak about the deal before the planned announcement on Monday morning.

    I shared a trade view on buying shares of Yahoo (YHOO:xnas) two weeks ago as it had reached technical support levels and looked exhausted on the downside following the company's latest earnings report.

    Morning Report APAC: Falling oil price spurs market slump
    Falling oil prices were again the catalyst to the markets slumping overnight. Equity indices fell, not helped by weak earnings results from oil companies with BP setting the tone. After the close, Yahoo reported earnings that were slightly better than expected, but confirmed previously reported details of a restructuring plan that underwhelmed the market.

    Yahoo searches for solution in job cuts and sale options

    Reuters
    Yahoo said it would consider "strategic alternatives" for its core internet business and cut about 15% of its workforce, even as it continues with its plan to revamp the business and spin it off. The announcement is the strongest sign yet that the board and Chief Executive Marissa Mayer may be willing to sell the struggling internet business – essentially websites, email and online search – under growing pressure from impatient shareholders. Investors were not immediately impressed, sending Yahoo shares down 1.2% after hours. They have now fallen 36% over the past 12 months.
