There wasn't much news about Yahoo! today, which to a struggling stock can sometimes be a good thing. Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ: YHOO) shares were up 68 cents, posting a 2.76% gain for the first time this week to close at $25.33.
In other news, according to comScore, Yahoo! is second place in local search after Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG). However, the difference is minimal with Google having 29.8% of the market in July and Yahoo! 29.2%. This I found to be very good news for Yahoo! as it is under so much scrutiny with regards to its search engine. At least here investors can sigh in relief.
Finally, another bit of news, somewhat odd perhaps, I found here. From the Yahoo! Search Marketing site: "Yahoo! Search Marketing will be expanding its global presence with an offering in India soon!" I guess expansion can also be a positive step.
