I've noticed lately that there are a few ETFs on finance.yahoo.com that are mischaracterized as companies. I suspect it's just a bit set wrong, but the net result is that you can't look at the ETF's holdings. And, since there is no way to get anyone's attention at yahoo, this is unlikely to improve. Is Yahoo overextended, or are they just losing interest?

I don't know if it's either, necessarily. There has been an explosion in ETFs lately and I imagine that even the mighty Yahoo! Finance may be a little slow in catching up with all of them.

Thankfully, nearly every ETF fund family has its own website. There you will find the daily NAV, quarterly holdings, prospectus, etc.

I've been trying to get ICF fixed lately. The first obstacle was just finding a way to contact yahoo. After that was overcome, the next was the response from yahoo: "I am unable to duplicate your complaint". Grrrr! Translated this means "I'm not an investor so I dunno squat, but the web page comes up, so it must be OK".

I was finally able to get Yahoo to fix ICF.  It was just a matter of going to the "Premium Services" page to find a place to file a complaint about invalid data.  After that, it was a matter of being persistent, as they first palmed me off on their supplier who said (you guessed it) "we don't supply that information to Yahoo".  :)
