Live From Sunnyvale … It’s Yahoo’s Q2, as Mayer Streams Video of Earnings Call

I cannot seem to recall an Internet company doing this — please illuminate me, if so — but Yahoo will “live stream a video broadcast of the company’s second quarter financial results on Tuesday, July 16, 2013, at 2 p.m. Pacific/5 p.m. Eastern.” The Marissa Mayer CEO show, with sidekick CFO Ken Goldman, will be coming from a studio at Yahoo’s Sunnyvale HQ, and will be available exclusively on Yahoo Finance. (I will so be liveblogging, and am secretly hoping for dancing purple exclamation points.) Wall Street analysts are expecting a meh quarter from the Silicon Valley Internet giant, with a drop in revenue compared to a year ago and worries about Yahoo’s key display advertising business. (Update: I had forgotten, but Netflix will also do so, although it will be a discussion, and not until later this month.)
