    Yahoo may blow away earnings and here is why.. IMHO...

    Ad revenues have picked up across the board and with so much attention on Yahoo from the media lately it seems that companies may be turning to them for placing their ads. Secondly, Alibaba did $3 billion in revenue on November 11th. No one knows the profit margin on that but we may find out Monday. I believe that is why Yahoo pushed back their earnings announcement a week. It originally, I believe, was January 23rd. I believe they wanted to know when Alibaba could supply their numbers to them. I also believe Yahoo has not been buying back shares. One reason for this may be they might be in takeover talks. I believe the buyback was halted weeks ago. I am only guessing here because I do not know the rules a company must follow when in takeover talks. I can only imagine companies stop buybacks because it would constantly change the takeover price if they keep buying. HMM.. I just don't know it is just a gut feeling. all jmho
