McDonald's Corp. Message Board

  • renaissancebubba renaissancebubba Dec 31, 2010 10:53 AM Flag

    I have a question.

    If I were attempting to use Yahoo stock screener and I tried to screen for only one factor (PEG)...with all other factors being "Any" for high or low value, and I put in a range for my high and my low and discovered that no matter what I put in for the input (As long as it was something besides "any") I got no returns on the screen...given that information do you think you could find the yahoo screen page and duplicate what I did?

    Because yahoo tech support apparently can't. when I emailed them they came back with this big list of questions and requests for urls and blahblahblah.

    I just wrote back that I'd use another screener instead.

    between stuff like that and no monitoring of their message boards in what should be a somewhat professional area like investments, I'm sorta thinking Yahoo is falling behind and I'm wondering if they have anything much to offer anymore.

    • Keep in mind that they are both free services and worth what you paid. These message boards would be Exhibit A.

      • yeah but they aren't really free.....they make a bundle by forcefeeding us all advertising...which translates into keeping us coming back is important to Yahoo even if they would rather not having us thinking along those lines.

        It's much easier for them to say Hey - what do you want for nothin'? but that's not how it really is....we're the audience and without us they got NADA, so maybe they ought to try a little harder. I once wrote google about some inaccurate stock info they were presenting and they got right back to me with a "thank you for letting us know - we're on it!", and it was fixed inside of an hour.

        I use their stuff too, along with several other sources like morningstar, and one of the reasons I do is because sometimes the info I see on one website doesn't match up with what I see on another one and I like to feel like I've got info that I've verified.
