Honeymoon Period Over For Marissa Mayer - Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) | Seeking Alpha: "Yahoo's CEO, Ms. Marissa Mayer, recently completed her two year anniversary. The stock has recovered since she took the reins, but it is still a far cry from Yahoo's golden days. Search and display revenues are not picking up as expected and their stock is trading at $35.61 with a market capitalization of $36 billion. It touched a 52-week high of $41.72 in April this year. The problem with Marissa's approach thus far is that it is heavy on hype, and light on fundamentals. I am still scratching my head trying to figure out what on earth is her monetization plan for all the assets she has bought. The market, in the next few quarters, will do the same. Currently, the only real case for investing in Yahoo is to gain access to the Alibaba upside."
