Could Yahoo! Be an Activists Target?

While pouring a little cold water on rumors Yahoo!'s (Nasdaq: YHOO) CEO Terry Semel would resign, CNBC's David Faber did discuss the notion that Yahoo! could find itself the target of activist investors that could force the company to explore strategic alternatives.

Looking through the list of holders, there are no 'usual suspect' of the activist persuasion.

According Bloomberg, the largest holders of Yahoo! are: 1. Capital Research and Management, 2. David Filo, 3. Legg Mason, 4. Softbank, 5. Jerry Yang, 6. Janus Capital, 7. Barclays, 8. Vanguard, 9. State Street, 10. Clearbridge Advisors.
