Gabelli Says Buy, Continues To See Takeout ‘Catalyst’http://goo.gl/W2KBDRegarding last night’s report by DealBook’s Michael de la Merced and Evelyn Rusli that Microsoft (MSFT) is teaming up with Silver Lake and other private equity shops to buy a chunk of Yahoo! (YHOO), the sales team at Gabelli & Co. today sent around a reiteration of the firm’s Buy rating on the stock, as assigned by analyst Brett Harriss.Harris didn’t issue a formal note, but the desk’s tidbit today relates: “Based on the following sum-of-the parts, we calculate a 2012 PMV of $26? for Yahoo! The Japanese assets of Yahoo! are worth $4.85 per share, while the Alibaba Group Holdings are worth $11 per share, and the company has $2.10 per share in cash, leaving a valuation of $7.80 for the U.S. business.”The firm “expect full acquisition or a break up of the company to be a catalyst,” the desk wrote.Interestingly, AllThingsD’s Kara Swisher has been keeping tabs on venture capitalist and Netscape founder Marc Andreessen, who some believe could come aboard as a board member or even as chairman in a private equity investment.
