Yahoo Beats Estimates and Stock Pops After Hours

yahoo

Yahoo was up after hours as the company showed growth for the first time in a year. Yahoo posted earnings of $0.38 per share on revenue of $1.09 billion in the first quarter, just beating Wall Street estimates for earnings of $0.37 a share on revenue of $1.08 billion.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

For the first time in more than a year, Yahoo is growing. Yahoo reported its revenue, minus commissions paid to partners for Web traffic, rose 1% in the first quarter after four straight quarters without growth. Revenue from display ads was flat at $453 million.

The revenue gains, however modest, are a sign that Marissa Mayer’s attempts to woo marketers are working. In nearly two years as CEO, she has updated popular sites like Flickr and Yahoo Finance, created new online magazines and slick mobile apps, and acquired dozens of small startups to inject new talent into the aging Internet giant.

Danny Sullivan over at Search Engine Journal reported that Yahoo is about to slip into single digits when it comes to search market share. Someone in the comments questioned if ComScore numbers even mattered ? Danny did give a good answer about why it still makes sense to check in with ComScore.

On the heels of Yahoo’s Q1 2014 earnings in which its search business showed signs of life comScore released new monthly search market share figures for the US market. They show Yahoo with 10.1 percent of the market — a new low for the company.

Seth Fiegerman covered the earnings report for  Mashable and mentioned strength in China.

The most impressive number in the report had little to do with Yahoo’s business itself. Alibaba, the Chinese ecommerce giant that Yahoo has a large stake in, grew its revenue by 66% in the fourth quarter to $3.06 billion. Some investors see Yahoo as a proxy for Alibaba, which is expected go public later this year.

Mr.Berkens Regs The First Uniregistry Domain of the Day on What Was A Busy Day

It was a busy day today for Frank Schilling and his company Uniregistry, as five uncontested strings went live at around 12 noon Eastern time. The strings that went live today were the following: .Pics, .Photo, .Gift, .Link and .Guitars.

Out the gate at 12:03 Frank tweeted:

Pretty quickly there were 2000 regs between Link, Pics and Photo. Frank tweeted his thoughts later in the day with regard to .Link and received a differing opinion from Kevin Murphy of DomainIncite.com

 

 

Later in the day Mike found out he regged the very first name for the day,
Registration no. 1 in today’s launch, across all five TLDs was… 2014-04-15 16:00:00.007486 | 3dprinting.link  | dom101.
Mike picked up a bunch of names and got some nice .pics that I did not even bother checking because I was sure they were on the  collision list or reserved. I checked like 100 names in .pics that made sense and were popular topics. All collision list or reserved, from Booty to Bikini to Cat and Dog to Free and Sexy.
Mike picked up:

He got what I am thinking is one of the very best .marketing domains with Viral.Marketing. 3600 exact searches and $5.50 CPC. As pointed out by a reader Richard S., this domain was not purchased for a simple handreg but rather over $1,000.
Frank told me later in the afternoon that Link, Pics and Photo had surpassed 10,000 arms length registrations.

Disclosures: Uniregistry is an advertiser on thedomains.com and HybridDomainer.com. New gTLDs are  highly speculative and nothing in this article should be construed as a recommendation, each person must do their own homework and stick to their budget and risk tolerance.

Hershey’s Files UDRP On 16 Year Old ChocolateWorld.com; 17 Year old NewBody.com Also Hit

A couple of interesting UDRP filings today

Hershey’s filed a UDRP on the domain name ChocolateWorld.com

The domain name was registered in back in 1997 however it is going to a blank page and according to Screenshots.com the domain may never have resolved to any type of site or page, not even a parked page.

Hershey does have a trademark on the term Chocolate World going back to 2005 as well as HERSHEY’S CHOCOLATE WORLD which was registered in 2011/2012

Another UDRP filed today is against another domain consisting of a seemly generic term, NewBody.com

NewBody.com has an original registration date older than ChocolateWorld.com or 1996

The complainant in the NewBody.com case is Cocolabel AB which filed for a US trademark on the term New Body in 2012 and to which opposition was filed to in 2013.

The domain appears to have sold or been transferred to a new owner in late 2013 or early 2014

NewBody.com currently goes to a parked page
