Yahoo! Finance is a media property that is part of the Yahoo! network. It provides financial news, data and commentary including stock quotes, press releases, financial reports, and original content. It also offers some online tools for personal finance management. In addition to posting partner content from other web sites, it posts original stories by its team of staff journalists. It is ranked 20th by SimilarWeb on the list of largest news and media websites.[3]

Its main task is to be a finance manager for you and provides financial reports for you to use. It is used for finance management and is a medium-size encyclopaedia-type website which provides information about financial news. In short, Yahoo finance is a financial news and management platform owned by Yahoo!

Something about this which is also happening with other companies is their motivation to have products in every area of work. For example, google docs is an attempt to compete with word as a text processor. Yahoo! is also seeking to compete with other finance managers and this is one of the main reasons why Yahoo! finance was created.

In 2017, Yahoo! Finance added the feature to look at news surrounding cryptocurrency.[4] It lists over 9,000 unique coins including Bitcoin and Ethereum.
