Stock analysis: Yahoo gets a 10 out of 10

Special to The Globe and Mail

StockReports+ is a Thomson Reuters service that helps investors pick equities by simplifying the process of evaluating stocks, finding new trading ideas, and understanding trends affecting markets and industries.

One of the web’s most visited portals, Yahoo Inc., reported slightly better-than-expected third-quarter earnings Tuesday evening. But Wall Street’s reaction was less than celebratory. Its stock on Wednesday was trading modestly in the red.

The arrival of CEO Marissa Mayer just over a year ago has boosted investors’ hopes for a return of its days as an Internet earnings powerhouse. Shares have more than doubled over the past year.

This report provides a detailed analysis that investors may want to review before buying or selling the stock.

StockReports+ gives each stock an average score that combines the quantitative analysis of six widely-used investment decision-making tools: earnings, fundamentals, relative valuation, risk, price momentum and insider trading. Yahoo is currently among an exclusive group of 157 stocks awarded its highest average score of 10.
