Mayer Stresses Mobile & Focus in First Earnings Call
Yahoo shares rose after hours on better-than-expected results-earnings of 35 cents per share on revenue of $1.09 billion. But far more interesting than those numbers were Marissa Mayer's comments in her first earnings call since taking the helm of the company three months ago. She came out of the gate strong, saying "this job is tailor made for me. The core components of Yahoo's business-search, mail, ads, mobile, news and the homepage-are also the core I built my career upon." Mayer said her goal is to "help redefine one of the Internet's most beloved companies," and went into some detail about how she plans to do that.
