So Yahoo! reported earnings just a minute ago the stock -- slightly higher after the report but.
There's a lot -- reaction than just the numbers we can get from rob -- think equity senior Internet analyst.
He had a second or two -- to look at the numbers I'm sure does any of this really matter now that they have a brand new person at the top -- parts six than five years.

Three Q guidance will be inching getting Olympics and presidential elections.
-- the the impact from advertising -- but in all honesty.
With the new CEO would likely back at square one waiting for a few more quarters to figure out what the strategy and so I would agree.
And with that in mind the room there was -- -- upset about this could surprise appointment may say that -- SO was my it was voted to basically make Yahoo! more relevant to today's.
Internet uses I mean is that a obviously a very told hospice is that what Yahoo!'s trying to do.
No doubt I mean the one thing Yahoo! does has -- -- and has had for some time is a number of users they they are able to generate on a monthly basis 700 million.
Per month globally and and that's.
They're scale is is unrivaled to a certain degree -- so.

Build products that can get people to come back to ya but she's never -- Company and its -- behemoth one that's basically have been struggling for some years now also how much is like an account against us.

Otherwise it looks to me and I think she should I think she should get -- their show some guts say you know what the board -- in charge -- -- -- -- is going to be the one that's it.
-- charge mean obviously you've got Daniel Loeb was the big.
Mouthpiece on the board -- -- she waited a lot of the changes and was apparently one of her big.
And cheerleaders on this and and it's a splashing in and dramatic move to put her in charge but for her not even be out there to introduce yourself seems a little odd to me what are you.
-- -- source that I I was surprised and I when I read that news and I thought she would be out there are at least saying hello I don't know much to say but looking -- to doing -- and this is why I made this decision.
