Yahoo Stock - A Buying Opportunity?

Discussion in 'Yahoo' started by internetguy, Jan 18, 2006.

    Yahoo's 4th quarter earnings missed the Wall Street estimates by a penny and the stock took a beating. I took this opportunity to grab some shares. I still believe that Yahoo profits will increase for the rest of 2006 when YPN goes out of beta. What do you think?

    I'd say its a safe bet. Yahoos stock is still up from a few years ago, so its a good investment, even if a little long term.

    Yeah, Yahoo may have a few surprises up their sleeve in terms of earnings once YPN takes off. Having seen some of their new ad formats on sites like CNN gives me good vibes about Yahoo's chances of taking on Google in the contextual advertising market.

    So, overall I think this is definitely a good time to invest in Yahoo as they will be around for the long run.

    Looking at price to earning multiples, GOOG has a longer way to fall than YHOO. ;)

    Google keeps impressing and the stock will keep going up, once it stops it'll fall BIG (just like Yahoo just did).

    Any inkling of when YPN will come out of beta?

    Henny is definitely right as a general rule, but there are exceptions. Yahoo gave a not so rosy forecast, which is why they took a big dip.

    I agree that Yahoo might be a good buying opportunity in this instance. I'm still bullish on internet-advertising related stocks. VCLK (Commission Junction's parent company), Google, and Yahoo have all done well for me in the past year.

    WOW I hadn't checked GOOG for a couple of days and what a surprise.

    Five days ago it was still floating around 460 and now 399.46.
