If anyone is still searching, bloomberg.com has a Watchlist tracker which is actually a Portfolio tracker as you can add purchases to it. I just brought everything over (manually) and it works very well. Looks better (IMO) thank Google Finance too. https://www.bloomberg.com/markets/watchlist

Do any of the alternatives generate a portfolio market value chart over time like Google's does? Daily values for the past month/year would suffice.

Yahoo Portfolio doesn't have cash position. Or do they?
They do, you have make one.

Type in "cad cash " as your stock ticker , nothing comes up but proceed anyway.

Put your total cash in the shares colum such as $125.25 then cost colum is "1"

For us cash search cad=x , this is usd - cad exchange rate. Repeat above for entry

I was able to make one for cad cash, and usd cash. Portfolio reports in cad, so usd cash (and us stocks) all convert using yahoo exchange rate to cad.

Btw yahoo finance the best alternative imp, I tried Morningstar didn't like it. I don't want to spend a lot of time on this so Yahoo was fine.

I tried, but this is what I got:
You have successfully imported your portfolio from Google Finance.
We either haven't recognized the following symbols or weren't fully able to import some of your transactions: XAW, ZDB, VCN, HXT, TDB902, TDB909, TDB911, TDB900, INI240, and INI220.
If you need any help, please, let us know and send us your OFX file at hello@wallmine.com. Thank you!

Google Sheets (spreadsheets) has a function that is able to lookup a variety of financial data.

Yes...

Just like the current Google Finance, you'll get stock prices, historical graphs, and news. A few Google Finance features aren't making the cut, though, namely the portfolio features and the ability to download historical data. There is still a "my stocks" feature that lets you keep an eye on favorite stocks, but there will no longer be a page for your transaction history and current holdings.

This morning, the Google Finance page is messed up on my smartphone. Google Finance leads to a search result of the word finance :facepalm:

Honestly I don't understand why Google would remove the portfolio features. To me that's the biggest reason I use "Finance". Stock price and chart are dime a dozen and easy to search. Portfolio on Google is convenient as I didn't have to sign up, log in etc with an existing Google account. Now by removing it, Google is pushing us to use something else...

That is maybe what Google wants. Go with Yahoo.
Google Finance's new website is bad. It integrated with their main website.

Holy smokes, what happened to Google Finance. Absolute crap. What happened to all of my sector gainers/movers and my recently viewed stocks. Also, why is there stories other than Finance on the page... I don't care about stories regarding the TTC *sigh*.
