How can we improve Yahoo Finance?

Wants more finance-related news articles

On the Yahoo Finance page there are about 135 headlines for articles. There are various types of categories for the article, such as finance, news, sponsored etc ... Of the 135 headlines only 55 headlines were from a finance category. Only 55 of the 135 articles listed on the Yahoo Finance even related to a "finance article"! That is barely of 40% of the articles on the Yahoo Finance page relate to finance. When I want to read news article, I click on the Yahoo News tab, when I want to read sports articles, I click on the Yahoo Sports tab. Why do i have to scroll through 135 articles to read through the 55 articles which I would be interested in a Yahoo Finance tab. It seems to create a big waste of time and energy on both our parts. I will also see business article listed on the Yahoo Home or News tabs, that do not even appear on the Finance page. It would be outstanding if the Yahoo Finance page just had business / finance related articles. It would be even better, if I could create my own tab which would filter out all the types of article I would not be interested in. In effect creating my own tab with just business and finance related articles that would post to it.

    Portoliio news is choked with spam articles from IHS Maarkit. Please force them to buy advertising space, and put their drivel in the advertising areas.

    you have the best stock market ticker but Your articles are always slanted heavily against President Trump, just think if you would just report the news without the negative ***** your audience would grow! most people I know just can't follow your news because of your ***** Trump isn't always right but he's never always wrong. Remember, Feedback is a gift!

    About a year ago I switched from Google Finance to Yahoo since Google really had ruined what was a very good offering. I enjoy the coverage on Yahoo, however just from looking at the title of the article, you always know when it was written by Rick Newman. I understand that what happens in the government affects the financial markets, but this guy uses Yahoo Finance to trash Trump and impose his political views and agenda on your readers. He should become a political reporter and stop wasting our time. If you solely read his articles, you would think the US was an authoritarian government and the president had unlimited powers and was solely responsible for the world financial markets. Is this really his job? He has nothing else of value to bring to your readers?

    Remove Rick Newman as a Yahoo Finance contributor. He is extremely left leaning and cannot provide a balanced view if he tried. All you need to do is review the comments on his articles. Perhaps because Yahoo is West coast it is the "in" thing to be leftest but you are losing the Heartland

    Stop with the same old articles. Most of us don't have pensions, we need articles on how to generate income with our saving. Have experts explain products and vehicles that can be used and share the pros and cons and suggest places we can go for advice.

    Next,

    start a movement to repel taxes on Social Security Write about it every day so the American people know that you will be taxed on social security, money you already were taxed on once before. Heck we all paid into the system for years most people don't even know they can be taxed 50 to 85 percent on their social security. Want to give the economy and baby boomers a reason to spend..................repel tax on Social Security.

    Take your ******** banner off the top of the Yahoo Finance page that "commands" people to sign up for Yahoo Finance newsletter. No one wants to read them.

    you've messed up the news parts beyond belief. are you trying to rid yourselves of users?

  • David commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I scrolled the Yahoo home page and saw 20 "business" articles. Why wouldn't these article be on the finance page? If your web site users are looking at the finance page, they would want to read business and finace articles.
