Following last night's post pondering the state of Yahoo!, Silicon Valley guru Sramana Mitra has shared her thoughts on what Yahoo! should do next.
Given that it's probably losing the search battle with Google, Mitra reckons Yahoo! should snap up an online travel company.
But not just a content site or meta search engine. Oh no, aim high.
Yes, really high - like Expedia, Priceline of Orbitz.
"Yahoo should acquire one of them, and become a serious player."A few questions about these pearls of wisdom:
- How much should a company which has lost $20 billion in market cap over two years be willing to pay for a business like Expedia?
- Is this really the right strategy?
- How would the market react to a - still reasonably signifcant - search company owning a online travel company?
