First off, let me thank everyone for any suggestions ahead of time. I was a big Google Finance fan but they recently got rid of the portfolios feature and it absolutely sucks now. I tried Yahoo Finance but I'm not liking it. Does anyone have any suggestions for sites I can use? I'd like something where I can enter transaction or holdings info and look at individual stock performance as well as total portfolio perf. I have a few different accounts at different sites and I also manage my dad's money so simply logging into my schwab account won't do it - I need to be able to have multiple portfolios. I want something where I can see all of these portfolios on one screen and be able to easily look at perf. Suggestions? Go!

Marketwatch or CNBC may be good

There is nothing close to Google finance. Using Yahoo now after trying Sharesight, investing.com, Morningstar.

When Yahoo trashed their portfolios, I looked for alternatives. Following someone's suggestion, I set up a spreadsheet in Google Drive and used Google finance functions to load data.

It all works pretty easily, just like Excel. To get Apple's price, use a function like this: =GOOGLEFINANCE("AAPL","price"). A long list of functions is here:

I've noticed some quirks, like data being a day off and some mutual fund quotes are off by a penny or two.

you could make your own "game" at https://www.marketwatch.com/vse and put in your actual investments. i don't think you can set things like initial cost, but you can see things as they move.

finance.yahoo.com or bloomberg.com, actually, I use fidelity as my broker and get the news and quotes from it directly.

I still can't find a good replacement for google finance. I did start google excel sheet for my portfolios but it's just not the same.

I looked into investfly. It looks like I can only do 1 portfolio for the free account. On a sidenote, does anyone know where I can "play" options trading? I have never done options and really want to try a few trial options to get my feet wet.

It felt weird going back to Yahoo Finance, especially since their name is synonymous with NetScape and Internet Explorer in 2018. With that said, I grew to like their portfolio view, especially the sparklines for individual stock. Really packs a lot of information in a compact way.

An alternative option is to use a broker that has a nice web app such as e*trade
