I want to know how to reorder/change the portfolios.
There is only option for add / edit/ delete portfolios now. Is reorder
the display of portfolios possible?
I saw some one has reported this issue back in 2007. Has google fixed
this bug yet?

Thanks.

Thanks for reporting!

Unfortunately that is not an option at the moment, but it is on our
list of suggestions.

Thanks,
Laura

I would also be very interested in doing this, as my "default"
portfolio is now closed, but I would like to keep the information.

Thanks Google! Love your products!

Me too!!
This could easily be done by providing a list just like "edit portfolio".

Doesn't look like the option to reorder portfolios has been implemented, but there is an easy workaround.

The portfolios seem to be listed in the order they were created.  So for each existing portfolio you have, download the transactions to a spreadsheet or OFX file.  Then Delete all your portfolios from Google Finance.  This will need to be done individually for each portfolio.  Next, Create new portfolios in the order you would like them.  Finally, import the transaction data you previously saved.

Not the easiest way if you have a lot of portfolios but it is an option.

Nice workaround Craig.

Really wish Google would add an option to rearrange or sort portfolios.
Even displaying alphabetically would be an easier task for Google developers, and users could just rename portfolios with ABCs to arrange.

Over nine years have gone by, and this simple, sensible suggestion has not been implemented yet?? Really Google, this is just plain embarassing. Google Finance is a worthwhile property, but like any web asset, you have to put a bit of effort into it once in a while. Think for a moment how much your server is getting pounded because all those users don't have their default portfolio at the top of the stack. Put this on your mod list and get it done. Please.

Android Google Finance app not available?  I have to use Yahoo Finance on my S7 as I can NOT find the GF app.  Any chance a mouse over on my portfolio could pop up the notes comments?  Tks

This is such a basic feature in any financial portfolio. I cannot believe Google has not had this from the beginning. Yahoo has it and many others. There Stock Portfolio tools definitely need upgrading...Sad!

This is the #1 reason people use finance.yahoo.com .. it's 1000% better.

It's so SAD that Google has access to all the data, yet treats so many of it's products or services as "pet projects", appearing to users as something one person codes in their spare time, and that a $T company has no budget to spend a few thousand to extend capabilities.    Google needs to get it's act together if it ever wants to be perceived sa something more than an R&D company, where Development and promotion of products beyond Beta.. is always an afterthought.

I had used Yahoo Portfolios before the Google one, and I went back to Yahoo not long after Google abbandoned it's profolio manager.   And since then Yahoo has improved things, again and again.  Yehoo does not however, at least for free, the graph of portfolio performance that google did.

inconceivable that google finance doesn't have a ticker re-ordering feature. 

the last incarnation of google finance was so much better. then they hired a bunch of interns and gave them angular and this is what we have. 

someone suggested yahoo finance and it would have been great except that it's loaded with crap and slow as snails.
