Discuss all general (i.e. non-personal) investing questions and issues, investing news, and theory.
Previously I used to use the Schwab Compare or the Vanguard compare screens. I tried comparing Vanguard EX USA Small Cap VFSVX ro Schwab's Fundamental Intl Small-Mid Cap SFILX but it did not work. I seethat Yahoo Finance is used often on this site. How do I find it? I searched and must of missed it. Any other compare sites good to use?

But may I ask what data exactly are you going to compare?
For funds less than a year old, it will be difficult to use anything but the prospectus as the data bases are not updated.

Fundinvestor at Morningstar.com, costs about $100/year.
M* gives you a list of the best 500 funds, tabulated each with about 30 different financial parameters in asset groups, rates the funds and their managers. I use it to review the funds of my portfolio and alternatives, since 2006, then decided that indices are the best.

I use Morningstar since I rarely have a need to compare mutual funds. The portfolio tools that come with the free account are pretty decent.
