Stephen Weiss: Yahoo! Nothing to Shout About

After parsing through the latest results from Yahoo! trader Stephen Weiss says to there are much better places to put money to work. "There’s no growth – it’s flat earnings – revenues are flat. There's nothing going on here.”

By the numbers, Yahoo reported net income of $237 million, or 18 cents a share, compared with $213 million, or 15 cents a share, in the year-earlier quarter.

The company forecast third-quarter net revenue, which excludes the fees that Yahoo pays to partner websites, of between $1.05 billion and $1.1 billion.

In a statement, Yahoo Chief Executive Carol Bartz said the company saw "softness" in its display advertising revenue during the second half of the quarter due to changes in Yahoo's sales organization aimed at positioning Yahoo for "more rapid display growth in the future."

Trader Dan Nathan agrees that at Yahoo! is lackluster but he remains at least relatively interested in the stock because he thinks ‘something’ happens with the company.

"If they ever great something right, I think we could see shareholder leverage here.... the current management isn't working. They've got to figure something out."
