I’m not sure if I have been a Yahoo Finance blogger for long enough, but I did receive a note from a reader asking about how the beta is calculated. I don’t know if this is a common question, but it is something we recently started to discuss on our blog, so I thought I’d give an answer.
The beta is calculated by Yahoo Finance to determine whether a company has enough internal and external market power to convince people to buy their stock. It is based on historical earnings data, as well as information about the companies performance, and the general market. So a company with lots of information and a good track record will have a better chance of winning the bet. Yahoo has a pretty good track record when it comes to beta, and they are pretty good at choosing the right companies.
I think I can say in theory that Yahoo Finance has a pretty good track record at beta, but I need to test it out before I can be 100% sure. For now, I’m going with Yahoo’s list of top beta companies as it’s the most comprehensive list that I have access to.
Yahoo has a lot of data to crunch, which they use to crunch the numbers. They can use the information they have to make better choices about companies they consider to have a good track record. They can also look at their own data and choose to exclude certain companies. I found the Yahoo data to be pretty good. It showed that Yahoo Finance picked the right companies. The list of companies was more than adequate for beta purposes.
I was surprised that Yahoo didn’t include the likes of AIG or Citi, but hey, they could try a little harder. Yahoo Finance also has a lot of data about companies, and the inclusion of AIG and Citi was probably just to cover themselves while they were on a roll.
Yahoo Finance just missed an important market. The reason Yahoo missed it was that the Yahoo data is from 2005, and the time period of beta is now. Beta is the period between the beginning of the company’s IPO and the actual IPO date, which is usually the third quarter. When looking at the Yahoo data, you get a pretty clear time frame for beta, but the companies were all left out of the data.
Also, Yahoo Finance is one of the most commonly used financial tools on the web, so you’d think they’d have done their due diligence. Especially since the fact that Yahoo missed the beta period says that the beta is indeed over now. This is a key thing to note with all beta data, but this particular one is especially important because Yahoo Finance is the only financial tool that Yahoo has that has a beta year-to-date (that is, in the last 12 months).
The news is that Yahoo Finance is the only financial tool that Yahoo has that has a beta year-to-date that is, in the last 12 months. That’s because Yahoo Finance has to be one of the most popular financial tools on the Web. It’s one of the few financial apps that has a live beta. And by live, I mean it’s been up for nearly a year now.
Yahoo Finance has also been one of the most popular financial tools on the Web. And by popular, I mean its been up for nearly a year now. So its one of the few financial apps that has a live beta.

Yahoo Finance is not the only financial tool on the Web. There are a few of them that are very popular, such as Yahoo! Real Estate, Yahoo! Finance, and Yahoo! Sports.
