As Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer addressed investors in the company's first quarterly earnings call under her leadership, Jacob Internet Fund's Darren Chervitz said Monday that he was looking for a solid plan.

"Tonight, I want to hear a blueprint that sounds reasonable," he said on "Fast Money," adding that he was excited Mayer led off the call and hoped to hear about future maneuvers.

What Big Moves Will Yahoo's Mayer Make? Pros
Darren Chervitz, co-portfolio manager at Jacob Internet Fund, says he's looking for a blueprint for Yahoo, as new CEO Marissa Mayer speaks in earnings call.

"We think there's a lot of value embedded in Yahoo — 7 million users," he said, adding that he also looked forward to her ideas for technology "that can gain scale and monetize more effectively."

Chervitz said that he wasn't looking to trade Yahoo shares immediately, instead looking for a long-term tell.

"The more pertinent point is: What are the first, big, bold moves she does? You have to figure she makes some acquisitions soon," he said.
