Daily Debrief: Yahoo's winding road

On Tuesday's Daily Debrief, CNET News' Microsoft-Yahoo watcher Dawn Kawamoto talks with Dan Farber about what's happened to Yahoo since the shareholder meeting.

On Tuesday's edition of Daily Debrief, our Microsoft-Yahoo watcher Dawn Kawamoto talks with me about what has happened since Yahoo's well-documented August 1 shareholder meeting. Yahoo's stock price is nearing a 52-week low this week, but the herd of press and analysts covering the company are either on summer vacation or allowing Jerry Yang and his somewhat new board of directors a respite from their attention. Like other public companies, Yahoo lives by the financial quarter, so the watchers will be hovering as the quarter ends in September, speculating on how Yang and company perform now that the boardroom melodrama has abated.
