    Mr Icahn is delusional. Yahoo may not be doing to great, but MS would have only sped up it's decline. That said, I do think they're bonkers not to have accepted such a high offer. Accept defeat, take the money, and run!

    looks like yahoo is going down one way or another, doesn't surprise me. i thought microsoft gave up a bit too easily in any event.

    Maybe Icahn is buying up shares and hoping MS makes another move so that he gets a 50% premium over its share price. ;)
