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.
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'.

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.
