The article reveals that some analysts have been bracing for disappointment on Internet search firm Yahoo's 2008 guidance as it continues to fend off Google, Microsoft and Facebook. Also, Wall Street is expecting more aggressive initiatives from co-founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Jerry Yang in a bid to reverse the company's fortunes. Analyst Jordan Rohan of RBC Capital says they do not believe that Yahoo will guide aggressively for 2008. Particular focus is given to the projected income and revenue of Yahoo for this year.
