Yahoo Finance is my own personal finance blog. I post my daily thoughts on the markets, my thoughts on the future of the job market, and what I’m thinking about the most (or least).
In the past few months the company has really gotten into the world of finance, from the IPO of a company that created a currency that’s supposed to be used for online trading to the recent announcement that its own stock had doubled in value. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for the company, and for me personally, because I like to be in control when I invest.
Im not too worried about the stock because Im not sure if its going to go as high as it was before the IPO. But I do think that the company is going to change how people view shares. Back in the early 90s, they were a tiny company that was about to fail. Now they are a company that has a $500 million market cap. At the time, they were a small company and they were just trying to survive.
It is no doubt going to change how people view it’s shares because of the rise of Internet stocks as a result of the dot-com bubble. It turns out that the stock rose in the years after it’s IPO because people had an emotional connection to it. The more people invested in the stock, the more people were willing to buy it and the higher it went as a result.

Yahoo Finance was one of the first stocks to explode with a huge amount of buying because it was the first stock to have an IPO and it was a company with a high degree of growth potential. The other stocks that made a big move after Yahoo was a very small number like Enron, GE, and Microsoft.
When Yahoo was purchased by AOL, it made a lot of sense because AOL was the first company that people could invest in with a high degree of confidence. AOL was very cheap and so people invested a lot of money and bought the stock because they thought AOL would continue to grow. Eventually, AOL failed to grow as quickly as Yahoo and the market didn’t seem to care.
AOL and Yahoo are the two main market leaders in the US. For Yahoo it was actually a good thing that AOL was purchased because they were a lot further along than Yahoo. Yahoo has continued to grow since AOL, but at a much slower rate. Even though AOL is much older and AOL has grown at a much faster rate, Yahoo’s stock was still trading at a much lower price.
Yahoo’s stock has also been declining for the past few years. Just a few years ago Yahoo shares were trading at a lofty $60.00, which was at the time when Yahoo was a $1.00. Today the stock is trading at a much lower price than that. Yahoo’s core search engine has also been declining for the past few years and it has hit a plateau that is not expected to be broken anytime soon.
Yahoo’s decline in search results has been particularly steep and has also been due to the emergence of a new competitor, Google+. Yahoo’s decline has also been due to its loss and fragmentation. What’s more, Yahoo’s loss is due to its loss due to the loss of its major search engine, its ad revenue, and its brand. All these factors are making Yahoo’s stock more volatile and less valuable.
