11:40 EDTYHOOEarnings Preview: Yahoo! shares up over 28% since last earnings report
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. Yahoo! is a digital media company that provides services such as Yahoo! Search and Yahoo! News... EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for EPS of 28c on revenue of $1.21B. 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. At the Q3 earnings conference call, the company said it plans to continue investing in display ad technology and sees more upside in search. 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. Max Levchin, who has had extensive research in building Internet companies, was added to the board. Business Insider reported that it was unlikely that Yahoo! would have mass staff reduction. In recommendations, the company was upgraded to Susquehanna and Goldman, citing favorable capital allocation and the new management's focus. Needham also raised Yahoo's price target, saying the shares were inexpensive in view of the company's buybacks. Analysts at Berstein, however, downgraded the company to Market Perform, citing the difficulty in gauging the upside for Yahoo!... PRICE ACTION: Yahoo! shares have risen over $4.50, or more than 28%, since the first day of trading following the company's Q3 report. In Friday mid-day trading ahead of the Q4 report, Yahoo! shares are down approximately 0.5%.

06:41 EDTYHOOCantor sees 'cloud of uncertainty' around Yahoo plans
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali believes comments yesterday from the IRS's Office of Associate Chief Counsel regarding tax treatment of certain spinoffs bring a "cloud of uncertainty" around Yahoo's (YHOO) plans to hold a tax-free spinoff of its shares in Alibaba (BABA). Isaac Zimbalist, Senior Technician Reviewer at the IRS' Office Associate Chief Counsel, said that the agency will now hold in abeyance any ruling requests received with regard to spinoffs, according to Bloomberg. Squali reiterates a Buy rating on Yahoo, however, saying shares at $41 remain compelling. His analysis of varying tax treatments of Yahoo's Alibaba spin yields a $16 per share negative impact under a worst case scenario relative to his $60 fair value estimate. Yahoo closed yesterday down $3.38 to $40.98 after Zimbalist's comments brought a late day selloff.
