Yahoo!'s New Deal and 2 Hot IPOs


Listen now on

Among the topics our analysts discuss on this weekend's Motley Fool Money radio show:

  • As the debt-ceiling drama continues in Washington, Friday brought news that America's economy grew just 1.3% in the latest quarter. Is a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating just around the corner? What should investors do as they watch things unfold?

  • Yahoo! (NAS: YHOO) shareholders got some good news. After a four-month dispute, Alibaba Group has reached an agreement with Yahoo! ensuring that Alibaba will get between $2 billion and $6 billion if the lucrative Alipay business goes public. Does this resolution alone make Yahoo!'s stock more attractive?

  • Quarterly profits for Ford (NYS: F) fell nearly 8% as the company spent more on research and development. Is the drama in Washington part of why Ford is keeping some extra cash on hand?

  • Shares of both Dunkin' Brands (NAS: DNKN) and Teavana Holdings (NYS: TEA) soared on their opening days this week. Should investors snap up shares of these newly public coffee and tea companies? Our analysts give their advice and talk about their favorite doughnuts.

  • All that, plus former Google (NAS: GOOG) employee Doug Edwards discusses the early days of the tech giant in his new best-seller, I'm Feeling Lucky: Confessions of Google Employee #59.
