Stock of the Day: Yahoo!

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.

Yesterday, Yahoo! shocked the business world by announcing that Google VP Marissa Mayer is now its CEO. So far, the response has been very positive. She's seen as an effective, product-driven leader who will be able to attract talent to the company. John and David think this news now makes Yahoo! worth a second look by investors, as she is precisely the game-changing leader that Yahoo! needs right now. Things are likely to get very interesting very soon.

Big tech names might garner a lot of investor attention, but the truth is that they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology.
