It's no secret that Yahoo struggles with the same problems it faced when Bartz took over: declining share of online search advertising markets; weakening display ad sales; and low morale among employees. Bartz's problem was betting things would get better even after she picked off most of the low hanging fruit -- she cut costs, sold off non-core businesses, and outsourced some of Yahoo's search operations to Microsoft.
With Yahoo's stock flat this year, Wall Street is still waiting on that promised turnaround.
It was a rollercoaster of a year for the U.S. stock market.
