    Financial advisor George Chamberlin talks about the day's stock numbers, reports of hackers breaching Citi Group computers, Yahoo, and iTunes in his business report.

    Yahoo's turnaround effort picked up a little more steam in the second quarter even though revenue grew at a slower rate than analysts hoped.
         
    The results released Tuesday still marked Yahoo's best performance since it hired no-nonsense CEO Carol Bartz 18 months ago.

    Yahoo's modest growth provided the latest sign that technology and electronic commerce are recovering from the Great Recession a little quicker than other parts of the economy.

    The company earned $213 million in the three months ending in June. That represented a 51 percent increase from net income of $141 million at the same time last year.

    Yahoo's earnings per share of 15 cents were a penny above analyst estimates.

    Revenue for the period edged up 2 percent to $1.6 billion.
