Top 5 Shipping Companies To Buy For 2014

What’s Yahoo (YHOO) worth?

Depends on whether you’re looking at the company as a potential turnaround that’s losing market share to aggressive competitors, or whether you see it as a way to get in on the growth of one of China’s biggest e-commerce companies.

From the first perspective, Yahoo is an over-valued company, in my opinion, at a market cap of $33.8 billion.

Yahoo’s third quarter results, released Tuesday, October 15, were ugly. Revenue fell 0.7%, was down 5% year over year. (That was in line with analyst estimates.) Operating income fell to $93 million from $152 million.
