Randy,

I have been using the smfGetYahooOptionQuote function for a long time and it recently started to return "Error" results. Has something changed with Yahoo or is there a better function and source for free option quotes? Here is the syntax I have been using:

=smfGetYahooOptionQuote(A6,LEFT(S6,1),D6,E6,"L")

where:
A6 = Underlying ticker symbol
S6 = Call or Put
D6 = Expiration Date
E6 = Strike

Thanks for your help and this awesome add-in!

I just tried this and it worked fine for me:

=smfGetYahooOptionQuote("SPY","C","10/18/2014",188,"L")

Could be Yahoo is missing some contracts, or had a temporary problem? Hard
to say without specific examples of errors that are repeatable.

I usually use OptionsXPress as the data source. It is slower though. But
since they have people actually trading based on the data they put up, I
expect it to be more accurate.

Hi,
I am trying to locate a way to download historical NYSE data. I tried the above function but am getting an error message. It does not seem to recognize "YahooMS". I also tried "YahooMS2";Are market stats for Yahoo no longer available? Is there an alternative way to get the data.
Thanks.

All of the "YahooMS" items are working fine for me. The "YahooMS2" items
are now failing because Yahoo changed the URL. I'll have to fix that.

However, I'm confused by your reference to "historical data", since there
is only the current day's data there. You can get history from:

http://unicorn.us.com/advdec/

...but it may not match Yahoo's data. Different sources apparently have
different definitions of what's included in the statistics.

Hi Randy,
Thank you fro the reply and the data source. I was hoping that I could get the historical data from Yahoo as well. Similar to historical individual ticker stock prices.
If that is not possible, I will use the data you directed me to. When I use =RCHGetElementNumber("YahooMS&quot;, 13822) I get a return of "Error".
Thanks for your help.

Just double checked -- the "YahooMS" element definitions were redefined in
February of this year. If you still have the old smf-elements-2.txt file,
they won't work. You'd need the new one from the "Works in Progress" folder
on the web site. Hopefully, that's why mine is working and yours is not?

A new copy of the smf-elements-2.txt file has been uploaded to the "Works
in Progress" folder, with fixes for the Yahoo change in URL for the
"YahooMS2" element definitions.

uploaded to the web site.

I have spent a lot of time looking, but I can't seem to find average annual P/E ratios (2000 to present preferably). I need them for a school project. If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,
Mason

Well, "average" is rather meaningless there, since it could mean the
average of monthly closing values, daily closing values, or even the end of
each 5 minutes of trading.

The closest I know of would be the closing, high, and low values from
AdvFN. They can be retrieved on a quarterly or annual basis. However, they
will be based on fiscal periods, not calendar periods, so they will not be
consistent from equity to equity, and thus not really comparable.

Randy,

I was looking for 5 Year Income Growth Rate as opposed to Revenue Growth Rate. I found it on web at another site and I'm using GetTblCell to retrieve it but it's not there for many stocks. So if you have any other ideas please let me know.

Thanks,

Chuck

Take a look at the SMF-Template-Morningstar-Key-Ratios.xls template and see
if what you need is there.
