One risk of many is that this stock is very overvalued, and the Nasdaq has been performing poorly, ad revenue risk, poor performance of Internet sector and stock is currently in a steep down trend, ad-blocking software can prevent users from seeing ads on Yahoo.

Buy on rumor and sell on Fact

A well known strategy says the when a positive rumor is in effect, the price of a security will go up and when the rumor actually becomes true the price of the stock will drop because the price of stock is based on the future, not on the past.

9. ARTICLES OF THE WEEK
------------------------------
Start an Investment Diary

One way to improve your returns in the market is to keep a detailed investing diary and every quarter examine your trades. Identify what stock you bought and sold and why. Identify what mistakes you make and try not to make them again. Did you buy on an uptrend? Did you cut your losses? Did you spend enough time researching the stock you bought? Remember the saying "He who fails to learn from the past is doomed to repeat it." This is applicable to your portfolio also.

What would you buy if you were all in cash

Another, game to play is to identify what stocks you would buy today if you had all your money in cash. Do you hate the losing stocks you have? Are there stocks you would buy now if you only had the cash. Well, one of the most difficult things to do is to detach yourself from a losing investment. Take a look at your portfolio. Do you like what you see. Would you buy these stocks today? There is no reason to hold a stock in which you wish you had never bought, with the hope that it may one day come back. It may not. You may want to sell some of these losers to offset some of your winners, and reduce your tax for the year. Today, identify how much cash you would have if you sold your hole portfolio and figure out how you would invest this money. The only thing you may consider is whether you are getting close to a long term capital gain. In this case it may pay to hold a stock a little longer. Don't get stuck with a losing stock that you no longer want. Take the loss, and find a new stock that has a better chance of appreciating.

10. WIZARD'S QUOTE OF THE WEEK
-----------------------------------------------
"If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got"

Basically this bit of wisdom applies to the stock market and life in general. Has your portfolio been growing, then keep doing what your doing. Has your portfolio been shrinking? Maybe it's time to re-evaluate what you are doing and to try a new strategy.
