Old news is appearing under the ticker TXMD in yahoo finance.
This seems to be only happenning on a mobile device via the Finance app.
The first article when tapping on TXMD ticker is "FDA Expresses Concern on...." dated May 9th 2017.
That is OLD news.
When viewing it via the browser-> https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/TXMD?p=TXMD the first article is "ThereapeuticsMD CEO on the switch to Nasdaq from NYSE" dated October 9th, 2017.
Due to the amount users out there viewing this ticker symbol via the Finance app using a mobile device, please correct this ASAP as it is relaying OLD news. Investors who are unaware of this issue are relying on OLD news articles as opposed to the most recent.
A few extracts from the message board under Newest Reactions:
@betcha663 - Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I have tested this and it appears this error is only with the Android app (iOS and desktop are showing the current news feed).
I have alerted engineering and we will get this fixed as soon as possible. Thanks!
@MNsap - please see the previous response on this topic. This is a news feed issue. How do you feel this is intentional manipulation?
We are working on the problem as stated previously. Thank you for your patience as we work to resolve it.
Unfortunately although perhaps non-intentional the longer something like this (old news appearing) is not addressed, the greater the 'appearance' or 'theories' of deceptiveness will remain and/or accumulate. I certainly hope that there is real focus and priority on the issue because we are talking about a real stock with real people who are investing real money in that stock.
Just to address your inquiry on how this can be considered or felt this can have the 'appearance' of intentional manipulation, if you look at the definition of manipulation according to the SEC (U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission), manipulation is defined *Link Removed - See the community guidelines for more information.* as the following:
Manipulation is intentional conduct designed to deceive investors by controlling or artificially affecting the market for a security. Manipulation can involve a number of techniques to affect the supply of, or demand for, a stock. They include: spreading false or misleading information about a company; improperly limiting the number of publicly-available shares; or rigging quotes, prices or trades to create a false or deceptive picture of the demand for a security. Those who engage in manipulation are subject to various civil and criminal sanctions.
If all of a sudden a stock symbol - not all stock symbols, is displaying old news, in todays day and age, a comment like that is not far reaching.
Please make this issue a priority.
Thank you. I have repeatedly explained that this issue is with engineering and being worked on. If anyone feels this is intentional manipulation, please feel free to report it to the SEC.
@betcha663 - We do not have an ETA at this time. I have updated the ticket to try and get some more info on a fix. I will update here if I can get an ETA.
