You need to check reading charts… they both show the price dropping from about 700 to near 400. Currently both show the same price at around 445. What is different is the vertical scale. The yahoo chart shows more detail. Also make sure you didn’t select YTD instead of 1 year on the google chart. YTD is between 6mo and 1yr on the google controls.. yet we are not yet 6months into the current year.May 2, 2013 at 1:27 PM #761744
When I say downward trend I’m talking about the past 1 week or so as shown on the 3mo. 6mo. YTD and 1 year charts. Compare chart to chart using Google and Yahoo and you will see what I mean.May 2, 2013 at 3:31 PM #761747(former)FormerSanDieganParticipant
The only difference i see is that yahoo chart ends at May 1 and google ends at May 2, so you have the yahoo chart ending on a slight dip down, whereas google reflects today’s close up.
nothing to see here, move on.May 2, 2013 at 4:22 PM #761748HLSParticipant
Charts have different settings. AAPL hit a low of $385 intraday on 4/19 and has been in an uptrend since then.
This is perfectly clear on the 3mo, 6mo YTD and 1 year charts.
If you only want the past week, just look at a 5 day chart.
Google and Yahoo charts look the same when the settings are the same.May 3, 2013 at 7:27 AM #761758
Any idea why Google has a beta of 1.00 for AAPL and Yahoo says .65? Personally, I think I’m going to switch to using Google from now on, although I do like how Yahoo updates automatically and hence has a more accurate display of volume.May 3, 2013 at 3:07 PM #761774HLSParticipant
That spread in beta is not that large.
It’s partially subjective.
One possible explanation is that they use different indexes to determine the beta.
(one may use the S&P, the other may use the Nasdaq)
Is beta an important factor for you ?May 3, 2013 at 5:36 PM #761781
For me personally, no. However since APPL is in the NASDAQ I would think that is what should be used to determine the beta. It is important I think when determining past performance, I like to think of future performance myself.
