Google Finance has been redesigned for desktop and mobile web, aiming to make it easy to find data for stocks, market trends and relevant news. An important new feature lets you follow the group stock you follow and build your own. Watchdog, which will help you find news, statistics and earnings details. According to Google, such updates will enable people to make more informed investment decisions. The update will begin in the US in the coming weeks.
The Google Finance team wrote in a blog post that context understanding was important in making investment decisions and that organizing information in a useful way would make Google easier to find and compare information. With the redesigned Google Finance, you will be able to add company events and earnings directly to your Google Calendar.
In the new version of Google Finance, you will find explanations and descriptions of key words and figures while browsing through stock descriptions. For example, if you hover over a term like market cap, you will get the definition of term, as well as a badge that lets you know if the company is a large, mid, or small cap company.
The redesigned version of Google Finance features a bold splash of colors that make it easy to differentiate between stocks. The update will be a welcome change from the current version of Google Finance as it throws up a lot of search results and does not have much customization features.
The watchlist will be extended later this year to include portfolio features. Soon, you’ll be able to create and customize your own portfolio, easily track gains, losses, and review news relevant to your portfolio.
