You used to have the best Finance page on the web. You destroyed it.
Why would you ruin it? You used to have extended market quotes, their gone now. You used to have more than 2 news articles - why in the world would you only have 2? The page now opens with a video playing instead of having to press play - who does that?
Their are numerous other losses.
Whoever designed the new page should be fired. They've clearly never owned a stock, read news, kept track of the markets, or actually used a web page for finances.
Now that the Verizon deal has closed are you going to turn this mess around or are you going to reallocate resources and kill Yahoo finance off? All you have to do is start listening to your customers and redelivering what you previously provided!

Yahoo Finance was the benchmark.
Sadly, it is far from this now. I use Google much more now. It is a pity that Yahoo made the changes, has not provided reasons for the changes (or that are easily found).
I no longer trust Yahoo Finance data to be correct or accurate. This is disappointing. Yahoo once set the benchmark and was reliable.
It also appears that Yahoo provides very little, if any feedback, on what people have shared through the forum. I see the same issues continuing. "Planning" without any updates for 12 months is not planning at all. It seems to be that Yahoo is not interested in improving anything.
Overall, Yahoo Finance has become a disappointing experience.

The version from several years ago was best, now some dumb employee decided they knew better. HA! I hate not having transactions. Don't change something just for the sake of changing.
You are correct. Yahoo had a good product, that I imagine was also making money, and they decided to flush it down the toilet. Their search and email are dead and now they killed finance - what is yahoo good for. This is very sad as yahoo was an Internet pioneer once.
Yes, the repetition of going to the new page and back to the old is tiring. Stick with what works: The Old Page.

The new website is proof that Yahoo wants to go broke. They had a perfectly functioning and very popular website until someone decided it need to be 'improved'.

Does yahoo reads those comments, I guess not otherwise they'd be putting the old version.

Correct. The thing that bugs me most about this miserable new Yahoo format is the portfolio/stocks/mutual funds. I used to be able to hover my cursor over a stock and get a very useful dropdown box with minimal but useful info....name, days activity, etc. That is gone. Also used to go directly to a very useful page with all of the Performance data I need. Gone.... to a mishmash of "stuff" and requires two or three pages to get same info. Whoever is responsible for this change should be lashed with a wet noodle.
