Yahoo Stock Down 7% -- Japan Worries?

Yahoo shares are down more than twice as much as the broader market today: Yahoo is down 7% in early trading while the Nasdaq is down about 2.6%, according to Yahoo Finance.

The most obvious explanation seems to be Yahoo’s exposure to the Japan crisis — the company is reportedly trying to unload its stake in Yahoo Japan, which could be trickier now.

Or perhaps the Yahoo takeover rumours have taken a turn south?
