More good news for Vivendi shareholders.

More good news on the spin-off/asset sale front.

The articles go over spin-off and asset sale possibilities that Vivendi could do to unlock value.

The main thing I found interested is that they appear to be trying to sell or spin-off ATVI first which is what I think they should do, and what I stated in my article here.

I was surprised to see that they are thinking about selling SFR though.  They originally owned 66% of SFR and last year bought out the remaining 44% so that could be a quick show that buying the remaining portion was a mistake.

Whatever they decide to do, Vivendi will most likely unlock their missing value and the share should go up quite a bit higher after they make their decisions.

Congratulations Supreme Court.

Congratulations Supreme Court of the United States.

In the way you ruled and stated your judgement, it now appears that congress has the power to do ANYTHING they want as long as its called a tax.  Giant ramifacations for the future.

Oh and remember when Obama kept saying over and over again that this wasn’t a tax.
