Alibaba and the forty Chinese thieves (or it ain’t over until the fat lady sings)

HONG KONG (Reuters) – Sovereign wealth fund China Investment Corp (CIC) is in advanced talks to buy an up to $2 billion stake in Alibaba Group, sources told Reuters, as the Chinese e-commerce powerhouse looks to secure the last of the funding it needs to buy back part of its stake from Yahoo Inc.

GOOD: Yahoo shareholders should see good return on investment;

BAD: Yahoo shareholders could seen more return via IPO or better offer;

UGLY:  China active in capital markets and IPO (where are US players)!

BOTTOM LINE: It ain’t over until fat lady sings
