Seemed like I almost got it to work using TSE: This is an amazing spreadsheet. Anyway, I have an issue that after some point any new addition in Portfolio page is not recognize in Transaction page… Do you know the reason. However I have over different stocks. Can it be modified so I can enter and track all of them? Hi Mike, Yes, it can. You just have to add some more rows and propagate the cells downward to maintain the calculations. I tried to do it and it got all messed up.

Scott, love the spreadsheet. Is it possible to download others to calc payout ratios, valuation ratios etc? Think that would be great to supplement the already great spreadsheet. If you have a dividend investing and trading strategy, check out twoinvesting.

Therefore I leveraged the great work from the team over at Two Investing when they shared their dividend portfolio spreadsheet. Your email address will not be published.

Bring back the old Yahoo finance, so long Yahoo!!! Its interesting to note that the 50 day moving average has just hit the day moving average in a negative manner. It will continue to provide exceptional access to real-time data, editorial insights and analysis, breaking news and video.

With the new design, all of this is even easier to access, and can be custom tailored so you can get all the news you need about the companies that matter to you. Cleaner and easy to read, the new design features bigger headlines, bigger photos and fewer modules.

Can someone tell me how to get to the old Yahoo Finance page. New Yahoo Finance sucks!!! I am exploring Google Finance page already and seems much better than this new crap from Yahoo. Looks like we are done for now. Yahoo has made the switch and you cannot access the old version. I hated all the spammers, but this is not an improvement. Yahoo deserves to fail.

They never listen to their core users. Who would use this. The new verson of Yahoo Finance is useless. It just looks like any other useless free quote site. Too bad, I found it very useful when it was neatly organized instead of this dumbed down, probably for iphone version. Found Price Objectives on mobile platform and on the Canadian version: Yahoo Finance new changes are horrible. Was a good clean easy to navigate finance page now complete sucks. They sabotaged themselves here.

That was a close one and the Canadians got it right. Going to be a lot cooler there when I move as well!! Hope it updates news as fast!!!!! Canadian website nailed it. What moron changed Yahoo Finance? The first change I noticed was no price charts except a daily chart. Today my home page was completely different and totally worthless.

If home page is not returned by end of month, I will never return. I was able to revert back to the old yahoo finance by adding the following cookie. I have 2 PCs. One is still using old site, and I was able to narrow down the difference in the cookies betwen the two PCs.

As soon as I added this cookie to the PC that was showing the new site, it reverted back to the old Yahoo Finance site. Hope this helps you guys as well. Love the old site. It was the best format on the web, and I used it for more than two decades. Why in the world you would do this is beyond comprehension.

It reminds me of the New Coke debacle. Trying to contact Yahoo is almost a hopeless endeavor. How does one send an email directly to Yahoo. If anyone knows a Yahoo email address, please publish same, so that we can express our wrath about the new Finance format. I used to use yahoo finance: My old computer Vista and Internet Explorer version 9 still shows the original version, however my other computer Windows 7, Internet Explorer version 11 shows the newer version which I also do not care for.

And they do not care. If you want to get at least some of the old look back, but no message boards try https: The thing I hate most of Yahoo is they do not give a toss about their actual users. NO one liked the beta of finance and they did not care. Taking a good thing and turning it into crap should be punishable by law. Much prefer reader comments!!! That website address is: The new version of yahooo finance is terrible, and it is missing one of the most important tools, the competitors icon.

I have never found a replacement for Yahoo stock table listings. I hope they just changed the way you bypass, and I can figure out how to do it again. I use to have everything on one page price, current change, current percent change, price paid, current value, total gain, total percent gain, dividend percent, dividend date.

Now I have to look on to many tabs. It should be obvious by now that some high executives at Yahoo have been bought off by another company that wants to acquire them. They are intentionally destroying the value of the company to facilitate the takeover. That happens because it is the exact intent of management.

Until now, I have found Yahoo to be the most convenient, easiest to download, easiest to select source of market data.

Now it is time to move on. This new personal investment page sucks big time. I hope some a-holes get fired over this. No wonder Yahoo is hated. The thing I miss by far are the old Forum pages. I had users hey, Tim Stabosz—miss ya who regularly posted interesting information about companies he was either trading in or interested in with lots of excellent info.

I see him now at Seeking Alpha, but the best stuff on that site requires a huge investment. Ok i agree ,it sucks. Now waht are you going to do about it and when? You need to get someone who looks at things from the customer point of view. Yours is not important. Did you see the poll at the top of this article? That is the entire point of this article and the last comments! Suck new Yahoo Chart…….. I have a long list of Yahoo stock chart bookmarks.

In the past two weeks when using a bookmark, the chart page will present show on screen , however, whereas the headings show, the stock chart will not load. Are others experiencing this, and is there way to load the chart?

I have been trying to find information that used to be provided on the old Yahoo Finance. Yep this new version is definitely a down grade. I too will be looking for other sites that provides what I need. Too bad they messed up a good thing.

I find no option for tools. Give us back our old Yahoo. What is their problem Reply. Ted — were you able to go back to original Yahoo finance page? Or did you find a better service to use.

It is superior to anything out there as it is fast and easy and acvurate Reply. Yahoo probably lost over half their user base on this one Reply. Why make something so simple into a real unusable pain in the ass? It seems that Yahoo has tossed in the towel on a LOT of things lately, this is just one of them. Someone needs to find a way to let them know Reply. Ditto Ditto Old Version Perfect!

New Version not useful!! In Windows 7 it is located in c: I hope this helps! Yahoo Finance beta sucks! Great comment, but those directions sure are difficult to follow.. Are you saying that the original version is online? And if so, do you have the URL for it? I gave up trying to find the old Yahoo Finance..

Tim nailed it with: Any advice would be appreciated. Now its all spread out, hard to read, hard to understand and very distracting… Just Awful and now worthless… It has become as worthless as most of the other sites out there offering crap views… Yahoo charts used to have a very professional look and feel, all the information was compact and easy to read….

New site is horrible. Users tagged with 'Options Pro' flair have demonstrated considerable knowledge on option trading. Some have professional experience, but the tag does not specifically mean they are professional traders. Yahoo Finance doesn't work anymore. How can we get current stock and options data into excel? I'm just learning VBA and am just now delving into the deeper mathematics of options. It would be very nice to just be able to put a ticker symbol in one cell and expiration in another and get the options chain.

Yahoo Finance was the go-to choice, but apparently they changed some stuff you can't dynamically get data. I'm pretty sure Google Finance doesn't work either. Every person who has ever made a spreadsheet that gets data must be searching for the new alternative.

You can screen scrape. There are Google Finance functions for stock and mutual funds but not options yet? Excel has import functions, too. Options data is sometimes spotty or outdated on various publicly available sources like Yahoo! It's good enough to get an idea but a lot of data isn't as up to date as any live trading account as to bid and asks, OI, etc.

I have a free, open source add-in that is a collection of user-defined functions that can place data into cells and ranges of an EXCEL workbook:. Right now, a lot of updates are being done because of the massive changes Yahoo has been making to their website.
