Yahoo bounces big on earnings

Revenue falls, but investors cheer anyway.

By Motley Fool Jul 17, 2013 2:20PM
Yahoo (YHOO) reported second-quarter earnings Tuesday, and despite issuing mixed results, shares have bounced more than 10% higher today. Yahoo missed analysts' expectations on revenue, but reported greater-than-expected earnings per share. 

But the real story isn't the numbers, says Motley Fool analyst Matt Argersinger. The key to Yahoo's outperformance? CEO Marissa Mayer.

From Bernanke article:   "$34 trillion" to celebrate the amount of U.S. household wealth restored on his watch."  Don't liberals/leftist/progressives/dijms/marxists/communists (whatever they are calling themselves this year) honestly, really, swear-to-whatever-they-believe-in REALLY don't know that printing dollars 24/7 is DEVALUING household wealth, not "restoring" it?  Amazing!
