Also, while AllMyShares provides a great convenience as an organizational tool for information that can otherwise become quite puzzling, they warn that they promise no guarantees or warranties that the information displayed is accurate. This surely comes from the fact that they, the developers, depend on the stock market information from a third-party source, such as Yahoo! Finance, and must therefore make sure their users know that any faulty information is not their responsibility, but that of the information provider. But such caution must be taken no matter where you get your information from, of course.
