        Like everyone else, I agree you should have left the old format; it worked well, why change?

        What are you trying to do? The new look doesn't drive more users to your site, it drives them away.

        Once again you "fixed" something that needed no fixing. The previous view was vastly better than this "new" and "improved" view. Please return to the previous view ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!

        I don't know why you don't listen. Both performance and navigation are atrocious with the new design. News under a specific symbol is a hodge-podge of stories, some relevant, some not. The old ability to just have a list of all old news with drill-down capability is gone. This design is the worst I have ever seen. You have only one feature I still like, the ability to download a portfolio in MS Excel format. If it were not for that, I would abandon Yahoo/My.Yahoo for MSN or any number of other sites as quickly as possible. Whomever designed this new look failed miserably.

        Please bring back the old (classic portfolio views). You have made the portfolio views unusable. They combine lots, download only summaries, etc. Think like a doctor - do no harm!

        Bring back the old views and keep them there. The new stuff is worse than useless!

        Yahoo really screwed up Finance. I used to use it but since data such as bid/ask and ex dividend date are not available on the summary, the additional time to load, data in statistics is not up to date, all the ads especially the video BS, the amount of white that requires so much scrolling, the fact that you cannot click on news and get the story (for the few articles I am interested) and other changes, I AM NOW USING WIKINVEST.

        I hate this new view. It is awkward to use and difficult to read. Who ever dreamed this up is most certainly not financially oriented. We need stats and tables, not pretty pictures. At least give us the option of the old, friendly, sensible view versus this garbage. Thank you.

        Bring back the old view. It was easier to read and understand your standing. Don't forget, the people who do their portfolio on this site are not experts. Don't like the view.

        Fix the adjusted close column under Historical Distributions. There are NO adjustments for any security, anywhere, any date; it's completely non-functional, completely useless.

        LOVE TO SEE THE YAHOO FINANCE SECTION IN THE STOCK CHARTS...SAY IF SAY YOU BOUGHT A "THE XYZ COMPANY, INC" AT $X AMOUNT INVESTED AND YOU HAVE ALL THE DIVIDENDS REINVESTED( IF THE COMPANY DOES PAY OUT ) AND BE ABLE TO DO THE SAME IN COMPARING IT WITH OTHER STOCKS LIKEWISE WITHIN A CHOSEN SPECIFIC TIME FRAME AND SEE WHAT YOUR GROWTH IS ACTUALLY...

        The Singapore and Australian Yahoo Finance sites retain the old format, FYI

        au.finance.yahoo.com

        sg.finance.yahoo.com

        What a shame that Yahoo Finance is destroying itself. Traffic numbers have dropped by about 40% in a year. Simply insane.

        Cannot even edit holdings; says click on "done" button after editing; problem is, there is no "done" button on the screen.

        Really bad change by Yahoo.

        Going to a new tracking website.

        you ruined the yahoo finance site, but there was a refuge at yahoo canada which retained the old format. Now you have destroyed that too. Why would verizon ever want to own you???

        Why don`t you listen? While the new format might be appropiate for the intellectually challenged tablet user it`s a useless POS for every professional investor. We need fast and reliable information in order to make money.
