  1. "Report abuse" button not workin on spam and other abusive comments in Yahoo Finance Conversations

    Dear Yahoo Staff, there have been an increasing amount of spam and other abusive comments throughout the Yahoo Finance conversation boards. I have repeatedly tried to use the "report abuse" dropdown option on the upper right-hand corner of the posts to no avail. These spammed and/or abusive posts are still around months later. Below are a few of the examples:

    https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/GLD/community?guccounter=1

    Please look at the post history of the user Bullrage1. It is full of multiple years of youtube link spamming among other abusive posts. Many of his comments look like they're outright written by a bot.

  3. Thank you for TOTALLY SCREWING UP the way the portfolio pages are now printing!

    Would you PLEASE go back to the portfolio screen printing routine that was in place through through last Friday (11 Jan 2019). Get rid of all of the additional header data that you are now forcing to be printed. WHY does Yahoo constantly get rid of good ideas and replace them with ****???

  4. Speed up the web page

    I'm a long time fan who has started seeking quotes elsewhere because for some reason the Yahoo Finance page has become very slow. I really like the functionality and hope this can be fixed.

  5. yahoo finance web showing 'portfolio currency' problem started on Feb 8 2019, abruptly total sum switched from CAD to USD

    "no" , problem still exists , saga continues. BTW, You don't even need to ask me if problem persist. just try and see for yourself.

    1-create a dummy yahoo email id
    2-then login to canada ca.finance.yahoo.com
    3-create a portfolio with single entry ie. even cash ie 100 $
    4-once you save, you ll see all reported in usd you cant change it.

    When you fix this it means it is fixed. also click and try to edit currency it will not be possible.

    Thanks for the reply.

  8. Total gain (%) of sold stocks is incorrect

    I've bought 300 stocks at $20.80 (total = $6,240); and sold (-300) at $23.60 (total = $7,080).
    The total gain was $840, which is correctly indicated in my portfolio.
    However, the %Total gain indicated is 6.31% instead of 13.46%. It seems that you are dividing the Total Gain ($840) by the sum of the buying ($6,240) and the selling ($7,080) amounts, while the gain should be relative to the investment amount only ($6,240).

    Let me know if the information is unclear of there is a better way to incorporate gains to portfolio.

    Thank you.

  9. Ticker Search Field

    Recently, whenever I first type in a symbol into the ticker search field and hit "enter", it seems to always pull up the wrong company. I need to again type the symbol slowly to make sure the site finds the symbol before I hit enter. It seems the site is too slow to "lookup" the symbol in the suggested tickers that show below the search field, so even though I type the full, correct symbol that I want to view, the "suggested search" options that show haven't caught up to my typing. It's just a big annoyance that is somewhat…

  10. Shares outstanding needs to include all classes of shares

    According to the Y! finance footnotes, the shares outstanding is sourced from the latest Q. However, I have noticed that, particularly with small-cap stocks, the shares outstanding is only one class of shares. The share count for RELL, as one example, does not include any of the Class A shares despite being on the cover of the Q/Ks. Not sure if there is a problem with your data provider or a glitch in your website but if someone could look into this recurring error that would be great.

  11. The streaming function of my "Watchlist" of stocks has not been working or partially today and yesterday. Can you guys fix the problems?

    To keep viewers continuing to use Yahoo Finance, the streaming function and other functions relating to stocks must be kept up to the nanosecond or better or you are going to lose at least me and many many others as stable users. Consistency is everything or I will quit Yahoo Finance if nothing is done asap.

  15. Don't display portfolio stocks in Recently Viewed

    I have two portfolios, after tax and IRA. When I do my daily analysis, I notice that my looking into those stocks will displace potentially interesting stocks I had in the Recently Viewed listing. I understand I can add my interest into the Watchlist but that can get overly crowded and if my given attention span on a given stock may only be for a couple of days, I would hope a shortcut would still exist in my Recently viewed. Besides, if a stock is already listed in either my Watchlist OR Portfolios, why replicate those items under Recently Viewed? …

  16. Unable to delete a portfolio

    The article cited to use the latest browser version, disabling add-ons, ensuring javascript is enabled etc.; these efforts have not worked.

    I made another significant observation. The "delete portfolio" item in Settings is missing only in the most recent portfolio I created. The name of this portfolio is "Newest". The "delete portfolio" item is present, however, in all of my old portfolios. It's just that I had not noticed it, as I had no reason to delete the old portfolios.

    The same observation has been…

  17. Adding updated market values for Custom Symbols

    I can add a custom symbol to track other investments in my portfolio ($$Whatever), but I can only add it at cost and cannot adjust to market value and have it track the gain in a similar fashion to the traded stocks. In other words, I can add the stock and the cost basis, but I cannot add/adjust to current market value. I have to adjust the cost basis to track total value, but when I do, I lose the gain information. So I have to chose between accurate total value or accurate gain information, no way I can see…

  18. portfolio balance

    My Portfolios Should Not Add the Previous Day Mutual Funds Gains or Losses to "Day Gain" Amount - When you have mutual funds in your portfolio, I shouldn't see yesterday's gains for those mutual funds added to the "Day Gain" amount until trading has ended for the day and the mutual funds have reconciled. The Day Gain amount should reflect only the gain for that day since the opening bell.
