3 M&A Targets for Yahoo!

Pinterest

Pinterest, the hot content sharing service that allows members to "pin" images, videos and other objects to their pinboard, recently raised money that valued the company at $2.5 billion.

Pinterest hasn't generated any significant revenue yet, but the possibilities for the company are endless. I've long thought a heavyweight like Amazon (AMZN - Get Report) would wind up buying Pinterest. You pin something you like, whether it be clothing or furnishings, and then go over to Amazon and buy it. It makes too much sense.

Buying Pinterest could help keep it out of the hands of rivals, as well. During this week's News Feed announcement, Facebook (FB - Get Report) mentioned Pinterest several times, which I thought was rather odd.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg also described the new News Feed as "trying to give everyone the best personalized newspaper," which felt to me like a slight against Yahoo!'s newly redesigned home page.
