T = Trends for a Stock’s Movement

Yahoo is a technology company that provides search, content, and communication tools on the web and on mobile devices worldwide. It operates Yahoo.com, which offers Yahoo! Search, Yahoo! News, Yahoo! Sports, Yahoo! Finance, Yahoo! Entertainment and Lifestyles, and Yahoo! Video. Being such a large content provider, Yahoo is able to reach a significant amount of consumers across the globe. As the internet attracts an increasing number of participants, look for Yahoo to continue to be a major player.

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has reported a number of significant victories since her appointment to the position more than a year ago, among them Yahoo’s stock rally, its $1 billion acquisition of Tumblr, and the site’s appealing homepage and email redesign.

While Yahoo once looked as if it could be at the end of its road, quickly losing more and more ground to Google (NASDAQ:GOOG), the Sunnyvale, California-based corporation has since convinced consumers and analysts that it may be down, but it’s not out. It’s orchestrating several facelifts, embarking on plans with Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) that make it more mobile friendly, and partnering with high-profile celebrities to beef up the company’s media offerings.
