Yahoo weirdness

Seeing some odd results this morning in Yahoo and in spreadsheets that use its data.

A lot of the shares in my portfolio list are still showing a timestamp of 5:35PM BST (ie last Friday close) and are showing the price at that time.
e.g. GSK is showing 1,596.80
I can understand that with some shares that are not frequently traded but not in something popular like GSK. At around 9:45 UK time I was seeing half of my portfolio unchanged from Friday.

In some cases HYPTUSS seems to be pulling out an updated figure (GSK 1605.00) but Eventide's Excel plugin is still seeing the old one (1,596.80)

So unless Yahoo is playing an April Fool there seems to be something not quite right, so best don't rely on prices without checking multiple sources. Hopefully it'll sort itself out soon.

cheers
