        I completely agree that Yahoo! should be embarrassed. How can anyone handling an investment/finance site not understand that something as important for guidance as annualized gain is NOT the same as average annual gain (an almost meaningless investment guidance number).

        How long does something stay "Under Review". If Yahoo would commit to fixing it I would be willing to help.

        This is true. Yahoo Finance computes Annualized Gain wrong. I pointed this out about 3 years ago. I even got a response from a Yahoo staffer, I explained the correct formula. Then Yahoo completely forgot about the problem. Frankly, I am embarrassed for Yahoo.
