He has lost over $100,000,000 per month on this great investment. I think he is talking it up so that hopefully the stock price will recover slightly and he can cash out.

Mikedee has it. I'm guessing he's talking it up, selling it down.

Nice moves from Yahoo to protect themselves: the severance package and now the G deal, nice poison pills, I hope Icahn has a strong metabolism to survive them.

What would you people do if Brett suffered a hostile take over here at WebmasterWorld? Given the obvious changes in site policy would you folks have the same attitudes then?
I for one am rooting for Yahoo, it's not always about money.

You are confusing Yahoo (the company) and the Board (headed by Young) - the latter protected himself (and his toy), but seriously hurt the company's prospects - effectively what he did is breaking his fiduciary duties to look after all shareholders of the company rather than his own interests.
It remains to be seen whether Yahoo-Google deal will actually be allowed by anti-competitive entities, because this deal is certainly explicitly designed to reduce competition in the marketplace.
