New York, NY (PRWEB) October 05, 2012
In a recent Investment Contrarians article, financial expert Sasha Cekerevac reports that Melissa Mayer, new CEO of Yahoo!, recently announced her plans for the future of the company. According to Cekerevac, Mayer confirmed that the company will be redesigning its homepage and making changes to its search and e-mail functions to draw in users.
“At one time, Yahoo! was a giant among technology stocks; those days have long since passed,” notes Cekerevac. “Growth in corporate profits has been evasive for the firm, and Mayer took this opportunity to voice her opinion on where the company should be heading.”
With an engineering background, Mayer has helped build the Google brand, ultimately driving corporate profits, reports Cekerevac. While her success at Google is laudable, he notes, the long-term problems at Yahoo! still exist, and Mayer is starting at the beginning.
The Investment Contrarians editor also notes that Mayer plans to increase the focus on Yahoo!’s mobile platform.
“All technology stocks and their investors are spending a lot of time scrutinizing mobile platforms. This segment will be a crucial push for the next leg of higher corporate profits,” states Cekerevac.
He notes that Mayer also discussed the need to attract talent. As innovation is the key driver for corporate profits growth in this industry, technology stocks need to be able to attract the brightest and best, believes Cekerevac.
Addressing the question of whether Mayer can succeed in her plans, Cekerevac writes: “Certainly, the stock has had some more life since she joined the company, but it’s still within a long trading range. While many technology stocks have had extremely strong years, Yahoo! is still seen as a runner-up.”

Investment Contrarians is a daily financial e-letter dedicated to helping investors make money by going against the “herd mentality.”
The editors of Investment Contrarians believe the stock market and the economy have been propped up since 2009 by artificially low interest rates, never-ending government borrowing and an unprecedented expansion of our money supply. The “official” unemployment numbers do not reflect people who have given up looking for work and are thus skewed. They believe the “official” inflation numbers are also not reflective of today’s reality of rising prices.
After a 25- to 30-year down cycle in interest rates, the Investment Contrarians editors expect rapid inflation caused by huge government debt and money printing will eventually start us on a new cycle of rising interest rates.
