Some Yahoo Fourth-Quarter Financial Slides: Chart-astic!

Look, don’t just take BoomTown’s word for it–here are some of the slides Yahoo put out yesterday on its financial performance for the fourth quarter.

And who doesn’t love a good bar chart?

Using comparisons from a year ago, they show a lackluster picture of growth and momentum in general, but also that glimmer of the promise of what Yahoo (YHOO) could be again, just as new CEO Carol Bartz kept underscoring–actually, jack-hammering–at the analyst conference call about the earnings results.

Here are some of the Yahoo charts (click on them to make them larger), or go here to see them all:

Adjusted Revenue Growth (GAAP, or generally accepted accounting principles)

Operating Cash Flow Trends and Adjusted OPC

Free Cash Flow Trends

Non-GAAP Net Income Per Share Trends

Key Operational & Balance Sheet Metrics
