Google Finance or Yahoo finance. Which is better? April 20, 2008Posted by deminvest in goog, Google, investment, investment strategies, low cost, Social investing, stock faq, stocks, Yahoo, YHOO.
The best free online financial information service used to be Yahoo finance, but… Google continues to improve everything it does.
Now Google finance is the best for several reasons:
1) It charts are easy to use, fast, can be easily stretched over time and have wonderful small letters that connects charts to news. That way we can see why stocks had sudden hikes or falls.
2) Google Finance has more accurate data
3) Google finance now has dividend yields, just like Yahoo
What is still good about yahoo, are its “key statistics”. Packed with wrong numbers. Not reliable, but still wonderfully interesting. Example here.
