What Yahoo! Could Learn From Warren Buffett
There is, however, still the question of what to do with Yahoo!'s core U.S. operations, its 700 million users and all of the data that goes along with them. Does the company turn around and sell these to more traditional media firms, such as News Corp.(NWSA) , Bloomberg, or Thomson Reuters(TRI) ? It will be interesting to see what happens.
For now, interim CEO Ross Levinsohn has a lot of decisions to make regarding Yahoo!. Does he keep with Thompson's plan of focusing on technology and data? Does he keep the core focus on media and advertising, which are his strong suit? Or does he try to engineer a turnaround that will turn Yahoo! into the Berkshire Hathaway of tech? Only time will tell.
