Yahoo bests Google in July

August 22, 2013

Last month Yahoo (YHOO) had more unique visitors than any other Web company, including longtime No. 1 Google (GOOG), seen as a coup for CEO Marissa Mayer, who took the post in July '12. Mayer has sought to boost traffic and ad revenue at the still-struggling Web portal. Consensus of 28 analysts polled by Thomson Reuters is for Yahoo EPS to fall 6% this quarter. Sales have fallen 4 of the last 5 quarters. It was the 1st time since May '11 that Yahoo visitors topped Google. Yahoo shares rose 3.1% to 27.89. Google rose 0.4% to 873.15.
