Yahoo Earnings

(Updated, with chart at left from Safa) Yahoo just announced earnings. Apparently, they were quite good – but then, that’s what the Street expected. The chart at left shows how, in general, Yahoo beat Street expectations, but the stock is not up sharply in after hours trading, mainly, I sense, because folks pretty much priced this in already.

From Yahoo’s announcement:

• Revenues were $1,330 million for the third quarter of 2005, a 47 percent increase

compared to $907 million for the same period of 2004.

o Marketing services revenue was $1,160 million for the third quarter of 2005, a 46

percent increase compared to $797 million for the same period of 2004.

o Fees revenue was $170 million for the third quarter of 2005, a 55 percent

increase compared to $110 million for the same period of 2004.

• Revenues excluding traffic acquisition costs (“TAC”) were $932 million for the third

quarter of 2005, a 42 percent increase compared to $655 million for the same period of

2004.
