Microhoo: A Lot of Nothing Happened Yesterday

Still, Yahoo co-founder and CEO Jerry Yang said Tuesday that the financial results showed the company’s “strategy and investments are starting to pay off” in realizing full value for the Web portal, the report said.

Yahoo executives remained silent about the Microsoft situation. But Yahoo president Sue Decker noted it was too early to say whether the recent effort to outsource paid search ads to Google would lead to a wider partnership with that company.
