  4. Chat portfolio overview

    Add a chat overview page where all portfolio stocks are visible as small charts at one glance. Allow for choosing the time spam (today, 5 days, etc) to display. It should be a tile layout. So one can easily see and compare the individual stock performances.

    Jan,

    We continue to not replicate this issue. Please let us know if it continues. You may want to see if the issue is browser related.

    Best,

  8. Dashboard Upgrade

    The main page of the site should provide some topical headlines for the market overall and then allow customization of headlines from various tracked portfolios. If Yahoo did this well, the finance page would become my home screen the way Google Finance used to be.

  9. I have to agree with MANY others that if you want to expend the least effort to restore the most useful

    I must agree with most, that you took one of the BEST free portfolio functions on the web and turned it into one of the worst. However, I see the potential to add functionality that, to my knowledge, is only available for a fee or if you have an account with a broker. You may make your way back to the top, again, if you implement these before losing too many users.

    For instance, when you open your new portfolio you get a view including multiple lines containing something that looks like dates, prices and quantities of shares traded. This…

  11. Mutual Fund Screener

    Your mutual fund screener sucks ***. We used to be able to sort by 3 month and 1 year returns. Going to have to find a new site unless you fix it soon

  12. Options gain/loss calculation in my portfolio incorrect

    I have a FB option in one of my portfolios. The market value - cost basis indicates a small gain ($42), yet the total change, which should show $42, shows -$2,910,625 instead. Seems like a pretty simple calculation to be totally botched. Come on, Yahoo!

  13. Re new charts: color/size schemes are backwards. Price bars should have the weight & bright colors of the volume bars and vice versa.

    The price bars are much too narrow and too dull. There is too little contrast to the mildly shaded background which is equally dull as the bars themselves. Hence no contrast either in color or in width which are about the same width as the vertical and horizontal background lines. As a college art instructor, I can tell you that the narrow tertiary color of the bars is unreadable against a tertiary and secondary tinted backdrop. But the volume bars are bold enough to easily see because of its width and use of primary colors. (Since Green is being seen…

  14. In portfolio show if market is open or closed

    In my portfolio it would be nice if it was possible to add a column showing if the exchange is currently open or not. This could just be an icon showing open/closed. It seems like this is currently not visible, I can only add the market time or exchange name.

    Alternatively this can be done by showing price/value changes with a gray colour instead of red/green. Looks like this is how it works on your iOS-app. This gives me a quick overview of live data and portfolio changes today. Currently the web portfolio version shows red/green changes for data from…

    Please correct data for VSIAX.
    Morningstar lists a dividend on 9/19/16 of $0.282/share, Yahoo shows none. Additionally, Yahoo shows the same $0.793 dividend for both 12/19/14 and 12/22/14.

  16. Provide an option to copy a portfolio

    Where you have the link "Create New Portfolio" add the link "Copy Existing Portfolio." This would be very helpful.and is not complicated to program. I may have a large portfolio "List1" that I wish to divide into two separate lists. To do that I now have to create a new portfolio and input into it the stocks I want to remove from "List1" and input into "List2" Creating "List2" one stock at a time is very time consuming. If I could copy "List1" into "List2" it would be simple to delete from each list the stocks that I want to…

  17. Provide all Desktop Version Functionality to your Mobile Version!!!!

    The Mobile Version of Yahoo Finance has been so stripped down that is has been rendered almost useless. There is no access to Conversations, Profile, Financial, Options, Holders, Historical Data tabs as there is in the full Desktop Version. If you don't want to make a good Mobile Version, fine. But at least take away the automatic redirect to the Mobile Version. Please allow users the ability to use the Desktop Version on their mobile devices. It's up to me whether the image is too small or not, I can decide for myself. I don't need Yahoo forcing me to…

  18. how do we get accurate "cost basis" after entering sold shares to a holding in Portfolios

    Cost Basis error: Select any stock in a list from "My Portfolios" using My Holdings view, select +add lot, enter a negative shares, enter share price of the sale, auto save recalculates holding's values for shares and lot value, BUT THE COST BASIS SEEMS WRONG

  19. Cash tracking

    While the portfolio function allows $$cash to be added, it doesn't track the movement of cash. Can you add a functionality so that the cash balance changes with every purchase/sale of the stocks in the portfolio? This will allow me to have a more comprehensive view of my portfolio, i.e. how much is invested and how much is in cash (can be invested).

  20. Notes

    It would be incredibility helpful if individual "Notes" added to a symbol would transfer to other portfolios with the same symbol.
