Yahoo Finance app on iOS frequently recycles old articles as if they are new
The 'News' feature for individual stocks on the Yahoo iOS app frequently recycles old articles and posts them as if they are new. This is likely because article authors frequently make essentially meaningless "updates" to the text and/or change the date of publication because they know it will bump their article back up to the top of the list, thereby generating more clicks and more revenue for their content. A recent example is the MarketWatch article titled, "Tesla Earnings: Expect Model 3 Updates Amid Record Stock Highs". This article was originally posted 3 days ago. However, MarketWatch simply changes the publishing date every day to get the article recycled back to the top of the list. This issue is pervasive and particularly annoying when one wants to see actually up-to-date news. Please find a way to fix it.

This should ideally go into your immediate bucket list!!
There are 2 ways to look at it..
Either ignore update or do a comparative analysis of articles and update accordingly..
