Of course, if anyone has a good idea of what is going to transpire, it would be Bezos.
My guess is that other papers will now trade off this transaction's pricing (until the market can see the actual results in profitability of Bezo's plans for the Post).
Bezos will include it with Amazon Prime so they can really target the ads.
I don’t honestly know much about the Post, it’s extended holdings and the like. I’d have to think they figured in, especially after the Boston Globe sale.
The paper can’t be worth that much on it’s own.
That’s an interesting take on the value of other papers, now shored up to some extent by this large price-tag.
I still can’t believe the Boston Glove isn’t a drag in the other direction though.
We’ll see. This guy, by paying this price, may bankrupt a lot of people based on his over-evaluation, if it indeed does turn out to be one.
>>how he valued the company<<
He didn’t, at least not correctly. A fifth of the sale amount could have started a state of the art online publication with quality staff (or, those from the WaPo if quality wasn’t important).
