Yahoo! shares jump as profit tops expectations

Yahoo! shares jumped Monday as the struggling Internet pioneer topped Wall Street expectations despite a slip in quarterly profit.

Yahoo! reported profit of $272 million, an eight percent drop from the same period a year earlier, but the earnings figures were enough to bump the California company's stock more than three percent to $21.01 a share.
