    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.

    Thanks again.

    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.

    Hello again!!

    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?

    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 can export pricing information 10 times and I will get at least six different versions of it. You can not depend on anybody for anything these days. YF has been struggling with this kind of stuff for years!

    Please Please Please VERIZON, Please step up and fix this mess. I can not spend all day updating my finance. We have A LOT of other things we need to do this weekend than to spend all our time on such a simple task as downloading a freaking Closing Price. If you can't give us this, then I start thinking......what can you give me.....really.

    I know things are never as easy as they may seem; but, your yield calculations on just about every security are either delayed or just flat out wrong.

    Why don't you just enter the dividend payment statically and just bounce that value off the price. If you did that you would see the yield change in real time as the price changes. You are talking about one calculation. It seems the yield displayed is bogged down into some complicated algorithm that does require this complexity. It's a simple calculation that should be accurate and should change in real time with the change in price. It doesn't get any simpler in finance than calculating the yield of a stock. There is no reason that can't be done very easily if you would just put forth the effort to do it.

    Not only is the Price Data within a Portfolio not consistent. It is not even consistent if you bring up the Summary Page for a SINGLE STOCK!! Hit the Refresh button 5 times and on some stocks the price will bounce from one price to another and back again. What is the correct Price? Will you please fix this mess.
