Yahoo! Earnings Rise 6x, Shares Drop
Yahoo! announced quarterly revenues of US$1.25 billion and net income of US$755 million. That represented a 51 percent increase from revenues of US$832.3 million last year during the same period. Yet the stock lost value in after-hours trading.
I believe this reflects overheated expectations for the Internet bellwethers. We'll see what happens to Google and how the market reacts on Thursday.
