Since April 29 mid-day, multiple quotes are missing, that is, the symbol appears in the list but the quote field is blank, for example AC.TO, ACAD and AIMC. The list is long and includes the DJIA. Despite multiple screen refreshes (the quote might appear, but then disappears again) the problem remains. The missing quotes on the display screen are, of course, missing from the file downloads. Many quotes are there, but the list of missing quotes is long. EDIT: The Dow Jones (DJIA) continues to appear and disappear. I tried creating a new portfolio with both missing and appearing quotes, but the problem remains, there are many missing quotes and DJIA. EDIT 2: problem under Chrome and Firefox. Using Win10. EDIT 3: The missing quotes : ticker appears in black, rest of the lines displays no data. FINAL EDIT corrected: problem HAS NOT BEEN resolved by Yahoo! as issue has come back again.....
And if anyone finds a suitable replacement for Yahoo portfolios, please let the gathered know.
The irony just dawned on me of the consistent banner above my increasingly defective portfolio lists that advertises a Premium Yahoo Finance service. Are you kidding me? I'm going to pay you when, over the last months, you've demonstrated apathy and incompetence regarding the most basic service of portfolios - quotes?
Here are the stock symbols whose quotes are missing today (5/30) - and are almost always missing - from just one of my 15 portfolios:
This is across Firefox and Chrome on my PC and Safari on my Macbook. Furthermore, my own inputs such as notes and prices are gone along with the quotes. And in the search bar above the web page, the stock symbols aren't recognized there by the system either.
Apparently, whoever is in charge of Yahoo portfolios thinks all of this is perfectly acceptable. If you run a website that professes to be a financial website, your website should be able to grab a simple quote for Verizon, and not shrug its shoulders and say "Wha-huh?"
Mr William J Green,
May I as what it is you did?!
Dear Team Yahoo,
Do you have an update on a fix for this please? It has been 2 months with the Portfolio Tool unusable.
Your help in urgently fixing this issue would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
Hey Yahoo Finance,
I just wanted to Thank You so much for forcing me to do something I should have done a long time ago. I won't be bothering you any more.
One last thing.
It seems to me that you have a problem with sessions staying up for the ticker symbols that are coming and going.
Do you have circuits that are bouncing? I just wish you would do something to fix it. It's a big problem for those of us trying to use your product.
Two weeks have passed and I am again attempting to do my weekend financial updates. I see no change today versus what I saw two weeks ago.
Are you seriously looking into this problem or just giving us lip service. I would think this would be a serious enough problem that you would put some of your better folks on it and get it fixed asap.
I see symbols coming and going all during the week.
You Yahoo folks should try to be more concerned about supporting your products. What good is a portfolio of stock if half of them are not reporting the correct information?
I have the same problem across Firefox, Chrome and Safari. Many, many missing quotes, some taking all of my notes and entries with them, others with my entries intact but no quote provided. Some missing quotes can be obtained by entering the symbol in the search box on the portfolio page, while others send you to an entirely different quote. Too, a quote like FCX appears as it should in one portfolio, but won't load in another. Furthermore, some quotes are wildly inaccurate. And then...rarely...all quotes will load as they should. It is a MESS AND NEEDS TO BE FIXED IMMEDIATELY. This isn't a leisure site; its a tool people use for their financial well-being. God help us if this continues through the next panic.
I have also reported this - the reply from Yahoo was to do the standard clear cache etc which I had already tried and it does not work.
I have tried using Edge and Chrome browsers on 2 different PC's and the error happens.
It is an intermittent problem which seems like some tickers go stale on the server. If you set up a portfolio with the following tickers you will see that after a while all except BDEV.L go stale. After a period of time they may come back.
Try a portfolio with BDEV.L, HSBA.L, SBSW, ANTO.L, SDRY.L
A debug from Microsoft Edge shows:
HTTP404: NOT FOUND - The server has not found anything matching the requested URI (Uniform Resource Identifier).
(XHR)GET - https://query1.finance.yahoo.com/v7/finance/spark?symbols=ANTO.L&range=1d&interval=5m&indicators=close&includeTimestamps=false&includePrePost=false&corsDomain=uk.finance.yahoo.com&.tsrc=finance
Please help Yahoo, Portfolios is not usuable at the moment
Yeah, I can confirm I am seeing the same problem also. I have a whole lot of symbols in addition to what has been mentioned below. They are all over the place. Sometimes, they are reporting correctly and then the symbol goes invalid......not even seen as a legitimate symbol. It's just all over the place. It's really really bad. Can you imagine what it is like to post prices at the end of the week? My wife and I had to go to another site and get the prices of the ones that were not reporting. I would say there were between 50 & 75 symbols that were not reporting. It's a pretty big mess! You all need to figure out what is going on with your Price reporting. It is affecting the entire portfolio and everything associated with it. The Export Tool may be OK if you can fix this bigger issue.
I have created a portfolio with the missing quotes called MISSING QUOTES. There are 59 tickers which do not load consistently. The same tickers are missing in various portfolios I have. Always.
AC.TO, ACAD, AD.TO, AIMC, ALC.TO, AMP, AXL, BCE.TO, BHF, BMO.TO, CGO.TO, CJR-B.TO, CLDR, CNQ.TO, CPG.TO, CRAK, CSCO, CVS, DBI, DBX, DII-B.TO, EFX.TO, FEYE, FIH-U.TO, FLXN,GH,GPK,GRA.V,IOVA,JLL,KR,KXS.TO,LM,LNR.TO,MIC,MIRM,MRNA,MTW,NFLX,NTNX,OSB.TO,PD.TO,RTX,SAIL,SPB.TO,STML,SWAV,SYF,TD.TO,TFII.TO,TOT,TTD,UNH,USDCAD=X,VCTR,VII.TO,VOYA,VZ,WLK,YEXT
In the Index banner the DJIA will appear and disappear. When it is not there, I know right away that my ticker list is missing a lot of quotes until the DJIA reappears in the banner.
The 'unable to load portfolios' appears for a few seconds. I previously cleared cache and cookies to no avail.
When I do see the quotes showing up, I have to be quick in order to download. Many times I am not fast enough and the download is missing the quotes I listed above. Always the same ones.
May 7 11:39 : After further analysis, I have noted that some portfolios have missing quotes that are not in the list above , but are missing consistently per portfolio.
May 8 9:10: I just discovered that if I do a search for the missing quote on the Finance page, that you won't find the company and instead another ticker result is provided. I tried a few and it happens again and again.

Hi Patrick, I got the same problems as yours recently. I guess it started about in early May. The ADAC, ADAP and many other tickers quotes are missing. I even tried to create new portfolio using the same tickers but the result is the same under different portfolio name. I hope that Yahoo can resolve it quickly.
EDIT: Problem still present. Always the same quotes missing sporadically across different portfolios, AC.TO, ACAD, AIMC etc etc OLD update. Yesterday, I reset site settings for all my Yahoo! entries and today, so far, there are no missing quotes. Since no one else appears to have this problem, I guess it must have been local to me. I had tried another device (laptop) to see if the problem was device specific, it was not. The problem was observed on that device too. Hopefully, this issue can be closed. PROBLEM STILL PRESENT.
May 6: I refresh my screen multiple times until at one time the quotes appear and I can download. In the banner line for indices, the DJIA will appear and disappear too. The only one.
Problem still present, whether I use Edge, Firefox or Chrome. Same tickers appear and disappear as well Dow Jones Industrial Index.
While it appeared, for a very short period, that the missing quote issue was resolved, it now appears that this is not the case. Large numbers of quotes, always the same one, are missing ie. blank.
