Yahoo Finance SPT is an American online portal established on November 1, 1996, as a Yahoo Inc. subsidiary. It was formed as a free finance site operated and marketed by Yahoo Inc. We can say that it is an American multinational web and technology company, headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, which develops, operates, and maintains a wide range of Internet-based businesses. SPT Yahoo Finance represents a new brand launched and managed by Yahoo! Inc. for its the United States stock market portal, Yahoo Finance. The site offers the full content of Yahoo Finance but includes some additional resources and functions. Some of these additional resources and functions include stock charts that are specific to the United States stock market.

For over a decade, Yahoo Finance SPT has been a trusted home for investors, with fast, intuitive, cutting-edge, and entertaining content that has been positively accepted by thousands of users. Based on rich insights from the Stock Profiler, it displays relevant analysis and a list of stocks in the S&P 500 that has been customized for each user. In addition, through Yahoo Finance SMS, users can find stock quotes, stock alerts, up-to-date share price information, and current prices of the stocks they are interested in. The ability of SPT Yahoo Finance to deliver user value to users who have switched to mobile devices over the years is based on a holistic approach that integrates our investment, user, and content-driven strategies in each mobile-optimized iteration.
Trading in Yahoo Finance SPT is primarily driven by user-generated content, daily average trading volume, and stock prices. Underlying this decision-making process is the view that active traders hold a greater number of shares on it, and due to this, they also endeavor to generate more insightful financial news and information by reading and answering the active traders’ questions and providing good quality financial information that other users can use to inform their decisions. This actively contributes to the vibrancy of its community by enabling users to exchange trading ideas with the goal of achieving better investment results.
The number of Yahoo Finance SPT users who use the app on a daily basis has been increasing consistently over the years. During the period from Feb. 2, 2012, to Dec. 31, 2021, the daily average user usage of this company increased gradually. The user base of mobile application users in the United States has been growing rapidly and now accounts for 44 percent of SPT Yahoo Finance users in the U.S. As of Oct. 2021, the app reached approximately 15 million monthly active users, with a monthly mobile app user base of more than 10 million.
Enterprise solutions are generally installed on users’ corporate or educational computers or networks, and business users use the application on their mobile devices. Although the basic application functions are similar for both enterprises and financial users, the reasons for selecting Yahoo Finance SPT over other similar enterprise mobile applications or banking apps may be different from the reasons for choosing a business banking app over a personal banking app. One of the main differences between Yahoo Finance SPT and other finance apps is the Yahoo Finance news feed which was created based on analyzing user-generated content. Yahoo Finance has created a set of news feed modules and associated algorithms for refining the content and monitoring trending topics, providing users with good quality news on a more continuous basis. In addition, SPT Yahoo Finance also offers a comprehensive mobile stock-trading experience.
Users in the United States account for 73 percent of our user base. Their user base of female users accounts for 30 percent of their user base in the United States. The proportion of male users in Japan is below 30 percent, and this is attributed to the Japanese cultural preference for female attire, while female users have been slowly catching up. We believe we have the only platform in Japan that offers a portfolio of financial services such as stock trading, interest rates, and ETFs, which are specific to an individual user. User-generated content generated by our users is an important element of the SPT Yahoo Finance community.

- In order to improve the quality and frequency of the news feed on the news feed pages, they may add a collection of relevant keywords to enrich the news feed and also measure user engagement by using analytics.
- In order to make the mobile stock-trading experience even more valuable, they may add the ability to send push notifications from SPT Yahoo Finance to users’ mobile devices, thereby increasing user engagement and the risk of loss of information, which is a serious problem with other similar banking apps.
