Alibaba evaluation should have pushed YHOO to mid $60 range, however the high short interest on this stock should be considered as hump this stock is struggling with. The CEO Meyers of YHOO will need to come up with a plan that will inject confidence into this stock to push it over its hump to its true value.

Alibaba's valuation as per its IPO filing is lower than estimates and Yahoo Japan has lost a third of its market cap. However, Yahoo's stock is still under-valued at $34 a share.

The recent drop in price is a good entry point for the bullish investor. With the Alibaba IPO just around the corner there is only one way the price could be headed.

First Alibaba and Yahoo Japan, and now Yahoo's core business is undervalued. Is Marissa magic finally paying off at Yahoo INc? http://tinyurl.com/qj5g35z

With high profile management exits, I think Yahoo is slowly losing one of its 2 legs. I'm not going to bet on Alibaba alone at this stock price! http://seekingalpha.com/news/1618043-rep...
