Yahoo is in the news a lot as of late. That we all know. The news is rarely good but the reports coming from The Wall Street Journal and its tech blog All Things Digital is that there may be interest in buying the struggling web property. That could be the best thing for it.
Make no mistake–there are no definitive offers on the table to do a variety of takeover deals of Yahoo by either private equity moneybags or from big media giants such as News Corp. or smaller Web firms such as AOL.
But that does not mean that major players are not circling Yahoo and assessing the situation aggressively, a fact reflected in the rise in the Internet giant’s stock price today based on the many rumors swirling around it.
