Yahoo Must Continue Bartz’s Alibaba Strategy, Analysts Say

Yahoo! Inc.’s new chief executive officer should keep the strategy of Carol Bartz, fired yesterday, in resisting attempts by Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. to end their venture, analysts said.

“Yahoo is not desperate for cash, so for the new CEO to give up the stake in Alibaba for anything less than a fair price won’t go down well with Yahoo shareholders,” said Michael Clendenin, managing director at research company RedTech Advisors in Shanghai. “And it won’t keep him around for long.”
