    Yahoo (YHOO) took a huge hit earlier this week after Microsoft reported that they were retracting their bid. However, it recovered nicely since then on pretty large volume.

     Yahoo was hit by a 5% selloff today after coming under fire for providing information about one of it’s Chinese users that led directly to his apprehension and current prison term.

    Microsoft (MSFT) acquired a 1.6% stake in Facebook last week for a stunning $240 million, which places a valuation of Facebook at $15 billion.

    GOOG Takes Hit, Keeps On Rolling

    Sunday, July 22nd, 2007

    I’m sure most if not all of you are aware of Google’s (GOOG) “disappointing” second quarter results: Propelled by the online advertising boom, Google Inc. reported late Thursday that revenue surged to $3.87 billion, up 58 percent from the same time last year — a gain that was slightly above analyst estimates.

Now this is by no means a new phenomenon, but I can’t seem to figure out the reason behind the plunge.

This happened very recently with Dendreon’s short [...]
