Microsoft Still Mulling Yahoo Options [news.bbc.co.uk]
|Microsoft has yet to decide if it will up its $41.8bn (£21bn) bid for Yahoo, go hostile or walk away from the deal. |
A meeting of the Microsoft board on Wednesday ended without any decision, according to the Wall Street Journal.

|Withdrawing the bid could send Yahoo shares lower. The stock has jumped from $19.18 before the bid was announced in February to $27.41. |
That could be tempting for Microsoft to do, but if Microsoft showed an interest in Yahoo at a later date, the share price would probably rise up again.
