Seinfeld nears streaming video deal, yada yada
by Joe Flint
“Seinfeld” is about to become master of a whole new domain: the Internet.
Sony Pictures Television, a unit of Sony Corp. 6758, +5.41% is in advanced talks to sell reruns of the hit 1990s NBC sitcom to an online video service, and expects to have a deal wrapped up in the next few weeks, people familiar with the situation said.
Among the bidders chasing the rights to the “show about nothing” are Hulu, Amazon.com Inc. AMZN, -0.65% and Yahoo Inc. YHOO, +0.13% The deal could fetch a price well north of half a million dollars per episode, the people said. There are 180 Seinfeld episodes.
Netflix Inc. NFLX, -0.29% which last year took a hard look at “Seinfeld,” is taking a pass on the show, a person familiar with the matter said.
Reruns of “Seinfeld have been on local TV stations and the cable channel TBS for years, but the buyers believe it has potential to continue that run for another several years on the Web. There, it could hold appeal for a generation of cord-cutters who can’t catch Seinfeld episodes on cable, and will allow users to search for their favorite episodes on-demand.
Is Yahoo’s main business really worth negative $4 billion?
By Brett Arends
But is the core part of the company — which makes around $1 billion a year in operating cash flow — really worth negative $4 billion?
That’s what Wall Street seems to be saying right now.
And it seems unduly pessimistic, even for CEO Marissa Mayer’s harshest critics. Especially as Yahoo operates in the U.S. system of limited liability, which means a company really can’t be worth less than $0.
Bottom line? Something at Yahoo isn’t adding up.
And it either represents some free money for ordinary investors — or a warning sign of something nasty on the horizon.
Let’s run the numbers.
Yahoo currently trades around $43 per share, and there are 1 billion shares in circulation, meaning the entire company is valued — obviously — at around $43 billion.
But Yahoo owns 16.5% of Alibaba BABA, +0.60% , the Chinese online retailing giant that went public last year. At current share prices, Yahoo’s stake is worth around $33 billion. (Yahoo recently announced plans to distribute its Alibaba shares to its investors, through a spin-off vehicle.)
As of right now Yahoo has made me $28.50.
I've learn one thing from this, I have no idea how stocks works... kinda.
