Re: Let us all rejoice...

I admit that it's nice to focus on my portfolio in a more "normal" way for the first time in what feels like a long time, although in reality, it's only been 2-3 years since my YONG holdings and focus ballooned like they did, which in the [more]

Re: Still no voting result numbers announced

actually, I stand corrected. They did announce them. Unlike in March when the vote numbers were in a separate 8-K filing a week after the first announcement, they actually put everything into one filing on the day that the approval was [more]

Still no voting result numbers announced

When they had the first vote for the $6.70 buyout, it was announced on March 5th that the vote was not approved and then seven day later on March 12th, they issued an 8-K showing the details of the voting numbers.

This $7.10 vote was [more]

Re: Whats going on?

I'm actually really surprised this didn't close last week. I used to work for a company that went private the same way and the stock was delisted literally the day after the vote was announced. YONG surely had everything ready to close this as soon [more]

Re: Est Tax payments due June 16th

Hi Cecil

Your post got me to look into this further and it looks like the June 16 payment actually only covers April and May, so you're right that any income paid to us (such as gains from proceeds of YONG) won't require us to start making [more]

Re: Est Tax payments due June 16th

I'm not having any luck getting the link above to work, so here's a copy/paste. I also see that higher income taxpayers (if prior year's AGI was over $150k) need their est tax payments to be at least 110% of prior year's actual tax to meet that [more]

Re: Est Tax payments due June 16th

Thanks guys, while I agree that you need to consider your overall tax situation, I'm pretty sure I'm right. My employer only withholds taxes related to my salary, therefore, if capital gains, dividends or other income is significant and there are no [more]

Est Tax payments due June 16th

Just a reminder for those of you that expect to have significant gains as a result of the YONG buyout, the next estimated tax payment deadline is only a week away on June 16th. The timing could be a bit tricky as I'll probably need the proceeds from [more]

Re: :(

I spoke to etrade and they tell me that all YONG options will be accelerated to the day after the deal closes, and those of us with in-the-money calls will be paid out for the amount that 7.10 exceeds the exercise price at that time, which is [more]
