Yahoo! Finance is Now Useless!

July 18, 2016 — 6 Comments

Well, it happened…

All the useful features of Yahoo! Finance have been thrown out the window in the latest “update”. I’m starting to think that “update” is code for “take away features”.

Yahoo! Finance was my right hand. It’s like it’s been cut off.


UPDATE: Here is Yahoo’s announcement of the changes.

  1. Agree completely – try entering more than 1 ticker for quote and it chokes.

    try to find the Profile for a company and can’t do it.

    try to find the components of an ETF like SMH or IBB – and can’t find it and then, it means you can’t see its activity and how it contributes to the ETF movement.

    Really frustrating – who did they ask to test it in beta – not me.

    • Agreed! Try downloading historical quotes. It’s absolutely useless. They should have just left it alone. Those of us who identify don’t care what it looks like.

  2. Hello,

    The Canada version is still good – they didn’t change it, not that i can tell…..check it out—

    best regards

  3. I’ve lamented for years how Yahoo, once my go-to for just about every single thing I ever did online, has slowly stripped away just about everything that I’ve ever considered somewhat ‘useful’. Finance does look terrible now. I see that they’ve changed up Sports and have been using that about 75% less, and Mail is just what I use to sign up for e-mail and coupon lists that I know will also give me spam. That’s it. There’s pretty much nothing left.

  4. I pretty much find Yahoo useless, period.
