The Wall St. Buzz is that msft and yhoo are bidding for eBay. My source tells me that Yahoo! Has bid 1.76 shares for ebay ($40-41) and is expected to win at that price.
Looks like yBay!, eHoo! Could happen in 08!
**Update: Several people have emailed saying the economics don’t make sense because ebay has a larger market cap ($41b) than Yahoo! ($46b) so the acquisition should be other way or it will be massively dilutive for Y! shareholders (thus the 1.76 y/e shares).
I agree that it may not make sense, but I’ve heard it from a pretty good source so wanted to alert folks that at least it’s out there making the rounds, no matter how unlikely.
