SOURCEBoth Internet media companies are flourishing thanks to healthy demand for online advertising, particularly sponsored ads tied to keyword searches. The two firms are both scheduled to report second-quarter results next week and the growth should be nothing short of spectacular.
Yahoo! will release its numbers Tuesday afternoon. Analysts expect revenue, excluding fees shared with affiliates, a figure known as traffic acquisition costs (TAC), to increase 45 percent while earnings per share will be up 63 percent from the same period a year ago.
Google's numbers come out on Thursday after the closing bell. Its revenues, excluding TAC, are predicted to nearly double and profits are expected to increase 107 percent.
Analysts expect both firms to report earnings gains of 30 percent a year, on average, for the next few years. So with that in mind, you would think that both stocks would be enjoying the love of Wall Street.
But that's not the case.
i vote for google over yahoo !!!
