I Bet $31-Per-Share Sounds Pretty Good Right About Now, Eh?

After enjoying a few brief months of hostile-bid-inspired investor enthusiasm, Yahoo’s share price has resumed the steady decline it’s been charting for some time now.Yahoo closed at $18.75 today. Not only is that the stock’s lowest level in five years, it’s well below the $19.18 it was worth on Jan. 31, the day before Microsoft (MSFT) announced its $31-per-share offer for the company. Funny now to think that Yahoo’s (YHOO) directors argued that that figure “massively undervalued” the company. Funnier still to think that at points during discussions, the Web’s perennial underachiever believed itself to be worth $40 a share.

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
