Google has quietly posted in the Google Web Search Help forums that they are deprecating the portfolios section in Google Finance. It is going away next month, as part of a redesign of Google Finance.

Thank you for using Google Finance. We’re writing to let you know that the site will soon be undergoing a few changes to make it more accessible and user-friendly for a wider audience. The list of stocks in your portfolio will be migrated into the new experience on Google automatically, so that you can continue to receive related news, recommendations, and information about market trends. However, the Portfolios feature will no longer be available as part of the service.
The Portfolios feature will soon be deprecated as part of a renovation to Google Finance. To retain a copy for your records, download your portfolios now.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. To give you time to download and consider alternative services, this change will not take effect until mid-November 2017. To learn more about these changes, visit the Google Finance Help Center for details.
Best, – The Google Finance Team
