    "At $14, $15, $16, Yahoo is too low," CEO Carol Bartz (YHOO -2.9%) tells shareholders while vowing to improve on current 6% operating margins. She likes the search-and-advertising partnership with Microsoft (MSFT -1.2%) because search has "frankly become almost a commodity," adding that Microsoft will now be in charge of maintaining the "plumbing" that will support their combined search effort.

That's the take from Research Affiliates' Rob Arnott, who found that since 1953, shares in an industry's biggest company trailed average stocks by 2.4% a year in the next decade. Apple passed Microsoft (MSFT) as the biggest in tech after its 38-fold increase in share price over the past several years.

    The FCC votes 3-2 along party lines to move ahead with regulating broadband, setting the stage for an eventual legal showdown. Supporters include internet-dependent firms such as Google (GOOG) and Microsoft (MSFT), while phone and cable companies object, saying tighter regulations will raise costs. It's a "terrible idea" that would have "negative consequences" for decades, Verizon (VZ) CEO Tom Tauke says.
