Flabbergasted by aQuantive (AQNT) Price
- I sold AQNT shares in March for $26.38
- Acquisition price is about double what Google (GOOG) paid for Doubleclick (DCLK)
- Microsoft is buying an SEM firm (Avenue A | Razorfish)
Interesting to note, too, when doing a Google search this morning for aQuantive, I saw the new universal search UI in action:
Note that the fourth search result is a collection of news results and not a web page.
For more details on the MSFT-AQNT deal, see TechCrunch. I wonder what SearchQuant will think of this latest SEM valuation. Well, congratulations to Chris Boggs!
