Not so fast, Carol Bartz

Yahoo CEO mischaracterizes Apple's stock history in WSJ interview

By  

Today Apple is trading at $272.

There's no doubt that Bartz and Yahoo are operating in a much more difficult economic environment than was Apple back in the late '90s, and no reasonable person can expect her to work miracles overnight with a company that had become bloated and lost its competitive sense of direction. And while I wouldn't even compare Yahoo's current situation with Apple's back in 1997, Bartz did. And she got the facts wrong.

No big deal, I know, but public figures often misstate things that then are taken as fact or gospel. Sometimes it's worth checking into them, just to set the record straight.
