  1. The new search is so bad, it is a shame that Yahoo came up with this. It does nothing for me

    Change it to the Old "Search" for Finance or find a new one. This one is so BAD, it is unbelievable that you got something like this. Go and learn from others; just any of them.

    Any search I put in, the "Search" tells me that it does not recognize it. Same for stock symbols

  2. The worst searching one can ever find on the surface of the earth

    Yahoo Finance features the worst stock symbol searching I have ever encountered. It never respond accurately to the symbol you type, and usually result in another stock. The automatic pop up trending panel blocks a large area. Why need that for? Just give the user exact what he/she wanted. Don't ever outsmart your users. You can come up with whatever searching engine you want for your own use. I now cut my usage of Yahoo Fince by half at least, and prefer to use more reliable website such as "seeking alpha.com".

  4. Yahoo Finance should be for searching stocks and nothing more

    Yahoo is attempting to use Yahoo Finance as a general search engine... Bad idea. When I enter a stock symbol in the space labeled to enter this, everything comes up except that stock. If my stock is listed below, that requires me to click on it again to bring it up. If not on the list, I can only access it by closing Yahoo Finance and opening it once more; only to have to click the proper listing to find it.
    Yahoo Finance was my favorite easy to access and work with Finance program in the past; only to be…

  5. Equity Screener Exchange

    Exchange! Mutual Funds and ETF screeners have the option to select Exchange but Equity does not. There is no way to NOT show the OTC listed stocks

  6. Search Design - should be able to search without waiting for Lookup suggest

    Search is designed poorly. It currently requires the lookup suggest features to respond first before it can perform a search. So if you type in FMC and press enter BEFORE lookup returns its drop down values, it returns F = Ford not FMC. You SHOULD be able to type a ticket of company name into the search bar, immediately type enter and have the search execute and result results WITHOUT lookup needing to respond or be used. If a unique ticker or company name match is found, the page is displayed. If multiple matches are found, a search results page…

  7. Every time I type in a ticker and hit enter it only registers the first couple of letters so the wrong stock gets pulled up.

    I wish it would just recognize the symbol I typed in and not give me the wrong stock every time. I'm better off waiting for predictive search to populate and clicking on the right ticker then.

  10. i don't like to always see what YOU consider TRENDING at ever drop-down search

    Tired of seeing what YOU consider TRENDING every time I want to search something. It gets monotonous, boring, and downright annoying. STOP with the TRENDING stuff! I search what I want to search!!!!! NOT what YOU want me to see!!!!!!!!!!

  11. The stock screener so bad I don't even have words. Past versions had all the categories neatly laid out and one could expand and add them.

    The stock screener so bad I don't even have words. Past versions had all the categories neatly laid out and one could expand and add them. Now there is nothing or almost nothing. My god it is useless. How could this get by anybody with any financial acumen at Yahoo to be released? I can't even use it so now Yahoo has driven me away from the finance page

  12. Improve how Ticker Search works - do not require Ticker Lookup

    If you type in a valid company ticker in the search bar and press the Search icon WITHOUT waiting for ticker lookup to find it, you can often end up on the wrong company. Typing in FB for Facebook and pressing search before ticker lookup finds it for example will bring you to Ford. If you type in a valid ticker and press the Search icon or Enter, it should be able to find the company.

    Also when the ticker cannot be found, you are brought to a general Yahoo search page looking on the web. You should be brought…

  15. Search doesn't seem to work so it should be easy to improve it. Just make it work. I don't even know what I'm clicking on to post what I've

    I want to see several parameters of information for several stocks on one screen. This once worked most of the time on Yahoo Finance if I just entered the stock symbols. Now it doesn't seem to work at all, or maybe it just works occasionally if I'm lucky. It could be great if it worked but if it doesn't work it's useless.

  18. Make search more capable. It's a shame that Google Finance easily finds "NYSEARCA: NGE" and Yahoo Finance CAN NOT find it!
