Yahoo’s Alibaba dilemma

Yahoo’s second-quarter report on Tuesday shed little light on the two most important questions that longer-term investors have right now about the company: Namely, what will its stake in Alibaba Group be worth, and when will that fast-growing Internet portal execute an IPO in Hong Kong?


If this turns into an IPO Yahoo! will stand to gain some, but they will also have to sell off a percentage.
