Yahoo's first-ever mobile developer conference on Thursday failed to impress some CNBC "Fast Money" traders.
"They're going to be a very small piece of search, they're going to be a very small piece of mobile messaging and anything else they might try to compete with the big guys on. This is not a company that I'd want to own for that reason," said trader Jon Najarian.
But it "is worth owning" at about $44 per share, where it closed on Thursday, mostly as a play in Alibaba, said trader Guy Adami. It holds shares in the Chinese Internet company—valued at about $40 billion—that it will eventually spin off into an independent entity.
"I think you get more bang for your buck being long Yahoo if you believe Alibaba's gonna rally," Adami said.
Another battered Internet stock, Twitter, has enjoyed a strong run recently. It closed nearly 2 percent higher around $49 per share on Thursday.
Najarian bought shares in the social media company on Thursday, but said he will sell once it rises above $50 per share. Twitter becomes more appealing on pullbacks, Nathan said.
Adami also liked Facebook's prospects after a day in which it rose more than 3 percent. He said that he believes the stock will climb higher from $79 per share, where it closed on Thursday.
