There are two sides to every story, but usually only one of them turns out to be right.  The same will be true for Envestnet’s decision to back up the Brinks truck and dump $600 million on Yodlee’s shareholders to buy their beloved company.  Was it a brilliant idea, as I wrote last week or will it turn out to be a dud that doesn’t provide the expected value?
