Pivotal Research upgraded Yahoo! (NASDAQ: YHOO) from Hold to Buy with a price target of $23.00 (from $22.00)

"Our price target is revised on our incorporation of significantly higher market-based pricing for Yahoo Japan, an asset in which Yahoo holds a 35% stake," Brian Wieser. "Our BUY rating is thus a reflection of our view of the company's underlying value as improved on this basis."

Commenting on news after the close of a deal with Google, allowing them sell advertising which runs on Yahoo's sites, Wieser said it should be positive for sentiment, but is unlikely to have material value impact for the company.
