What is the meaning of YoY for stocks? Simply Year on Year! June 7, 2006

Often in our little discussions we use some symbols related to stocks. YoY (or yoy) means Year on Year. It compares a certain comany perforamance figure  between this year and the previous year. Example:If we look at  EBAY's key statistics on yahoo finance , which is our main source of company performance data, we will find:

Qtrly Revenue Growth (yoy):34.80% meaning that during the most recent quarter available for this year ( first quarter 2006) Ebay's Revenue grew 34.80% compared to the corresponding quarter of last year ( first quarter 2005)

We will also (unfortunately for me and for some other proletarian investors) notice that:

Qtrly Earnings Growth (yoy):-3.10% meaning that during the most recent quarter available for this year ( first quarter 2006) Ebay's earnings fell 3.10% compared to the corresponding quarter of last year ( first quarter 2005).

This lets us understand  two concepts:

1) what does yoy mean

2) why my unlucky EBAY stock went down so fast lately!
