Import your Google Portfolios to Yahoo Finance

FYI: Google Portfolio is going away but your investments still need a place to live! Import them into Yahoo Finance.  Here is how:

 

Import your Google Finance data into your Yahoo Finance lists. You can import when you first start the Yahoo Finance app up after installing or updating it, or postpone until later.

 

Import upon app startup

  1. When prompted to import upon startup, tap Import Now.
    - Tap Maybe Later to postpone importing.
  2. Sign in to your Google account.
  3. Within Google Finance, tap Yes to import the current selected portfolio.
  4. If you have multiple portfolios, select one you want - to make it current - and tap Yes.
  5. Repeat the step above for each portfolio you want to import.
  6. Tap Done when you're finished.

Import after postponing

  1. Tap the Menu icon Image of the side menu icon..
  2. Tap Import Google portfolios.
  3. Sign in to Google Finance and follow the instructions above.

Thanks @y4h0oligan - I have confirmed that the option is missing from the menu screen and have reported this to engineering.  Thanks for clarifying the problem.

Re: Import your Google Portfolios to Yahoo Finance

why can you add a import tab for the desktop version so i can upload a CSV excle spreadsheet that i downloaded for google fiance ...

 

also regarding wuropean stocks there might be a potential bug since in google finance for example lets take BT group trades in london and in google finance its LON:BT whereas in YAHOO finance its BT.L 

 

SO hopefully it works but i have a feeling it wont understand ..

Re: Import your Google Portfolios to Yahoo Finance

Hi All - It turns out the Google Import option is only available in iOS 11.  If you are on iOS 10.3 the option will not appear on the menu.

 

@stockboydan - There were some technical limitations on our end that prevented having this option on the desktop version, so we are only able to offer the import option on iOS and Android.  Thank you.

Re: Import your Google Portfolios to Yahoo Finance

Is there a bug in the app? When I try to import the Google portfolio, after I entered the password to connect to the Google account, nothing happens. No error message, etc. I tried it on 2 different iPhone with iOS 11 or +
