    • From Seeking Alpha this morning

      "For shorts, we like the looks of Yahoo and AutoZone. We continue to have a Sell rating on YHOO with a $15 price target, and the stock looks like it could be ready for a breakdown. We continue to see YHOO's business as overvalued, and think 2013 could be a correcting year for the company.

      Here is the situation we are looking at in Yahoo. The company has been hanging its hat on Alibaba for the past couple years, and with the recent sale of 40% stake in the company, it has only a 23% stake left. While Alibaba has a lot of growth potential, the company needs growth in its own business to show any more upside. We do not see that happening. Expectations are for the company to see flat growth in earnings and limited growth in revenue. The company has seen drops in search engine market share for the past sixteen months and is down to only 12% now. The company was at 15% at the beginning of 2011, and even new leadership has not turned it around. Additionally, YHOO just left South Korea at the end of the year. Where is growth going to come from for Yahoo? Until we see some new development to generate some interest, we believe YHOO is vastly behind Google (GOOG). Further, Facebook (FB) wants to move into the search market as well. "
