Ongoing product innovation is important to Yahoo! and we constantly test various product designs and features to gain valuable feedback and insights from our users. Part of this process includes identifying how we can make Yahoo! Finance even more useful and personally relevant.
On Tuesday night we started testing a new Yahoo! Finance Portfolio experience in the US to further enhance usability. Based on feedback about certain key features, we have chosen to move users back to the previous Portfolio experience and will make additional updates and modifications before we roll out the new features to our US users. The previous version will be back as soon as possible – we’re hoping to have it restored by the end of the day (Thursday).
Unrelated to the Portfolios redesign, we are currently experiencing an issue on a small select set of tickers on Yahoo! Finance. Tickers such as SPY, FPX, PLND, KCE and others. The team is actively working to restore these tickers. As a result, your Portfolio experience may show “No such ticker symbol”. We will have this issue resolved shortly.
We’ll soon be launching a new version of Yahoo! Finance portfolios in the US. The update features a sleek new design, more flexible ways to create, view and modify portfolios, and a more intuitive user interface. All of your existing portfolios data will remain intact.
Below is a list of improvements that we think you’ll enjoy:
For a sneak peak at the new Yahoo! Finance portfolios, please visit our U.K. site or our Canada site, where the new design has already been launched. After you have logged in, click on the “My Portfolios” tab, and you will be able to view your portfolios as they will appear after the U.S. launch.
Portfolios are one of the top features on Yahoo! Finance and we will continue to refine the portfolios section and add new features and innovations over the coming months. Feel free to use the ‘Feedback’ link on the UK or Canada sites. We’ll also have ‘Feedback’ turned on in the US when we launch.
Whether you use portfolios to track your actual investments, to manage watchlists of companies or a combination of both, it’s our goal to deliver the functionality you need with an intuitive and reliable solution.
