Bad news for Yahoo, it appears that their earnings have been lower than expected for Q1 2006 . And when you deal in intangible goods and are competing with companies like Google, any slip is bad. Then again, a profit doesn't sound bad, but when expectations are more important than money, who's gonna argue? Yahoo is still growing, and has added nearly a third more to their employee base over the past year. With other names at their disposal such as SBC, nobody is in any trouble here.
