Yahoo outperforms Google since Mayer took over 4 months ago
On July 16, 2012, Mayer was appointed President and CEO of Yahoo!, effective the following day.
On July 16 Yahoo closed at $15.65---Google closed at $574.92
On July 17 Yahoo closed at $15.60---Google closed at $576.73
Yahoo closed today at $18.24
Google closed today at $669.97
Yahoo is up 16.55% (from july 16) and 16.92% (from july 17)
Google is up 16.53% (from july 16) and 16.16% (from july 17)
That is less than 1% but no less true. Yahoo outperforms Google since Mayer took over.
A little fun fact: Yahoo also outperformed Google the first 4 months of Bartz as CEO. But the next 6 months after that Google was up 38% but Yahoo was down 9%.
