Yahoo! (YHOO) is expected to report Q4 earnings after the market close on Monday, January 28 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET.

The consensus range is 21c-34c for EPS, and $1.18B-$1.24B for revenue, according to First Call... LAST QUARTER: Yahoo! reported Q3 EPS 35c against estimates of 26c on revenue of $1.09B against estimates of $1.08B. The company also reported Q3 Search revenue $414M and Q3 Display revenue $452M.

It also said the stock is attractive at current levels for repurchases and that operating margins are "healthy." Yahoo! was not prepared to give guidance at the time... STREET RESEARCH AND NEWS: Yahoo! made several changes to its board as David Kenny and Brad Smith both stepped down.

06:13 EDTYHOOThird Point, FTC settle over antitrust filings for 2011 Yahoo stake
Three affiliated hedge fund companies and their management company, Third Point LLC, have agreed to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that they violated premerger reporting laws in connection with their 2011 acquisitions of stock in Yahoo! Inc. The complaint alleges that Third Point Partners Qualified L.P., Third Point Ultra, LTD, and Third Point Offshore Fund, LTD failed to observe the filing and waiting requirements of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act before purchasing shares in Yahoo. According to the complaint, the three defendant funds claimed that they were exempt from reporting to the U.S. antitrust authorities because the purchases were made solely for investment purposes. At the time of the stock purchases, however, defendant Third Point LLC, which made investment decisions on behalf of the funds, was taking actions inconsistent with an investment-only intent, such as communicating with third parties to determine their interest in becoming the CEO or a board candidate of Yahoo. Under the terms of the proposed stipulated five-year federal court order, the defendants are prohibited from relying on the investment-only exemption if they have contacted third parties to gauge their interest in joining the board of the target company, communicated with the target company about proposed candidates for its board, or engaged in other specified conduct in the four months prior to acquiring voting securities above the HSR Act threshold. In this case, the agencies determined not to seek civil penalties based on several factors, including that the violation was inadvertent and short-lived, and this was the defendants' first violation of the HSR Act.
