Bring over ALL data from previous format.

GO back to previous version or I'm sure many people will go to another platform

        Already searching for new sites. Have used CBSMarketwatch, they changed havn't been to their site since. Now Yahoo changes their Portfolio, so guess will be using Yahoo less and less. Go back to old site, PLEASE.

        Your Personal Finance portfolio is the best thing and biggest asset your failing company has. Why, on Earth, would you AGAIN ***** with it? This portfolio is for my investment purposes, and I take it seriously. GO BACK TO THE TRIED AND TRUE FORMAT.....NOW!

        This version still deletes user data (portfolios, views, etc.) and has a bunch of bugs (e.g. bugs when selecting portfolios, portfolio order not stable/changes, missing data, etc.).

        I'd recommend starting from the old format and carefully improving or adding functionality from there (if you insist on changing it every few months). Otherwise, the bugs will make the site unusable.

        I think stability and usability/functionality are probably the greatest user needs for portfolios (and I'm sure you guys must be aware that there are just a ton of bugs in this new format, so that it doesn't meet basic user needs).

        Yes, please bring back the old format. This is terrible. I saw no notice of a change coming

        I too must prefer the old format. This new format has NO advantage over the former one. Therefore, there is no reason for the new format. Many of your followers are used to the old format and prefer it, so going back to the old format would satisfy all your fans. Thanks.

        Thanks for returning us to one of the usable formats. The current format is better than your recent crazed escapade because you have now returned us to our own ability to customize the data we need in our portfolios. Thank you.

        As thousands of your users said, "QUIT fixing things that are not broken." I sincerely hope this will stick in your minds this time because last time you screwed us over WITH NO NOTICE WHATSOEVER, I actually READ word-for-word several thousand of the complaints, and I gleaned from them ALL the alternative website suggestions where we could go as 'refugees' from Yahoo Finance. I will not hesitate to share them with Yahoo Finance users if that becomes necessary AGAIN.

        I would also like to ask you to consider going back even further in time and go to the stock evaluation sheet that you used BEFORE the current one. You used to have an excellent ONE-PAGE evaluation sheet with ALL the data on it that one would quickly need when evaluating a potential stock purchase or sale. Your current 'statistics' page is almost the same, but requires lots of scrolling due to tremendous wasted space on the page (because it's double spaced!) Thank you for considering this modification to go BACK to an earlier version of the statistics page.

        Also one of the most hilarious things I have EVER seen as part of a stock evaluation is your current 'profile' page that has a MAP showing where the stock's headquarters is located. Are people actually ASKING for that sort of data when they evaluate a company??

        Thank you for helping us get back to normal.

        Restore ALL custom views, not just the first one created. Restore all column choices available in previous version. Ensure ALL available data is presented for each holding in portfolio; div/share data is displayed for some holdings not for other holdings.

        My custom view disappeared, search does not work, news dont work - it seems the time is to GET AWAY from Yahoo to another application

        Yahoo Finance: You have given us the opportunity (in the past) to create customized information formats for our portfolios. We LOVED this idea and took advantage of the FREEDOM to format as we wished. I created over 50 individual portfolios to watch. I spend hours --hundreds of hours each year -- working with the material I have imput. It is NOT A GAME. So, now WHY have you ripped away our ability to customize by inputting your own **** idea of what we need to know?? Please return those of us to the OLD self-directed format style that WE CUSTOMIZED. You have literally STOLEN from us -- your loyal users. You have thrown our time and effort in the trash can WITHOUT our permission.

        What happened to my custom views? Without those, there is no advantage to Yahoo Finance.
