CYNOPSIS DIGITAL – TODAY’S TOP STORY: Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer called a meeting with analysts on Thursday to begin to sell the Yahoo search partnership to Wall Street. He claimed that the market was undervaluing the deal and that Yahoo’s profits would likely expand by 70% due to improved relevance. However investors weren’t impressed, as the sell off of Yahoo shared continued. Yahoo shares dropped another 3% in value after Wednesday’s 12% decline. Full edition: CYN DIGITAL.
CYNOPSIS KIDS – TODAY’S TOP STORY: Scholastic Parent & Child August/September issue will be the largest revenue issue in the magazine’s 16-year history with 93.15 pages, an 8.4% increase over last year. Nick Friedman is Editor-in-Chief of Scholastic Parent & Child. While I don’t know what the ads in the mag are for … I’d bet a chunk of them are for apparel. Several baby/toddler apparel companies, including Carters and Gap, are reporting profits and my guess is that this is because clothing is considered an essential for little ones and parents and grandparents will buy multiple items … hey … it is all cute in those sizes.
