I’m pretty sure Marissa “the luckiest woman in the world” Mayer’s free ride is over at Yahoo. She had nothing – virtually nothing at all – to do with the resurgence in the company’s stock. The irony is that everyone thought the pretty blonde turned the company around, whereas the very scary looking not-blonde guy (and the fortuitous circumstance of YHOO owning a lot of BABA, which preceded Marissa’s entrance) had everything to do with it.
No matter. She’s wildly rich, and I’m sure she’ll die wildly rich. Lucky her. In the meantime, I think Yahoo is an empty shell, and utterly shortable.
