The WSJ reported that Jerry Yang is stepping down from the Yahoo! CEO role as soon as the board can find a replacement. May the bleeding soon stop. To appreciate the agony Jerry Yang lived through watch this Web 2.0 interview of him by John Battelle

To appreciate the agony that Jerry put shareholders through, look at Yahoo!'s stock chart

Hmm...I would prefer Apple will buy Yahoo.

To be fair pretty much every stock's chart is looking like that.

DreSeo, actually in the whole world!

Aaron – just like you study and know SEO, do you study the stock market? If yes, can you predict how long will this economic recession continue, and when can we expect to see great returns again from the stock markets?

I read up on the stock market and am fascinated by economics, but am a true amateur in those fields. I made a couple nice trades recently, but the timing was sorta luck.

I have also been buying on the way down way too early (bought some Google @ ~ $400...and more @ $350... and more @ $320... and more @ $305).

DreSeo, to some degree true...but this stock had a 50% + rise due to a buyout offer that was all but ignored (value destroying business offers proposed to avoid it, poison pills, etc.)...and then the stock fell from over $30 to under $10.

I just know that there's somebody in a cubicle at Yahoo that knows what to do.
