Yahoo is going through a rough time right before its merging with Verizon Communications. Analytsa have given a recommendation of 2.4, which means to keep Yahoo stock on hold rather than buying or selling. It shows an EPS growth of -48.20%, that is the lowest in the past 5 years and has earnings earnings growth of 111.20% (year on year).
Yahoo has loads of bad news in their stand. A hack that gave away 500 user details put them under European Radar. Employees have accused Marissa Mayer of being a sexist. Finally they have monitored all incoming email of user accounts for US intelligence that lead to the resignation of a c level executive.
