NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Slumping stocks, stunted turnaround strategies and soured shareholder sentiments have helped shine a severe light on several tech CEOs recently.
The salty Yahoo! (YHOO) chief Carol Bartz has long lost her gruff charm and she may not be able to hang on to her job much longer, if new media reports stating that the company is searching for her replacement are true.
It's been a tough run for Bartz, who was brought in more than two years ago to bring order and direction to the disarray Yahoo! had fallen into.
But Bartz isn't alone. Other tech titans have been called out for failing to meet market challenges or, in some cases, driving the business into the ditch.Here are five tech CEOs in the hot seat who may not get through the year in their current roles. The ranking is in order of stock declines.
