Yahoo Microsoft Bits

2:25 PM -- Snippets from the Yahoo Inc. (Nasdaq: YHOO) vs. Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) saga:

  • The theoretical News Corp. (NYSE: NWS) deal reported yesterday would value Yahoo at around $35 a share, Contentinople says.

  • A cautionary note this morning, via a research note by analyst Youssef Squali of Jefferies & Company Inc. : "A 'no deal' scenario would send the stock back below $20 quickly." Yahoo's stock, that is. Squali thinks Microsoft will prevail, but he doesn't share the Legg Mason Inc. conviction that Yahoo is really worth $40 a share.

  • It's worth remembering that Microsoft investors aren't necessarily happy about the bid in the first place.

  • In case you haven't seen it yet, here's Jerry Yang defending Yahoo's position.
