  1. Maybe TW should take that cash and double-down on LookSmart stock … that would seem to be about their speed.

    Or maybe invest in an encryption system for their employee data?

  2. Looks like TW already sold their stake at an average price of $185 per share. If their 5.1 million shares netted a $925M gain, then their cost was only about $18M, or less than four bucks a share. At that rate, I guess they can’t be too upset that if they’d waited until today, their gain could have been 25% more with the stock trading at $228.
