Hi Randy,
I searched some of your messages and as I understand the smfPricesByDates() function includes dividends and distributions,etc. However, I am confused when using this for a specific mutual fund - FCNTX.
It's showing me an annual return of about 4%, however yahoo finance shows annual return of about 12% which is really confusing..
I am using the following formula to calculate 1 year return -
= (smfPricesByDates(A47,NOW()-1) - smfPricesByDates(A47,NOW()-366))/ smfPricesByDates(A47, NOW()-366)


Thanks in advance and wish you Happy New Year and appreciate everything that you do to keep this group alive and active.

That's because the numbers on the performance page:

http://finance.yahoo.com/q/pm?s=FCNTX

...say they are "as of Nov 29, 2014". So the formula you would want for
comparison is:

=(smfPricesByDates(L3,DATE(2014,11,29))-smfPricesByDates(L3,DATE(2013,11,29)))/smfPricesByDates(L3,DATE(2013,11,29))

...which gives a result of 12.89%.

Thanks for the quick response, I didn't realize a big swing in about a month.

Probably not on most of the source-specific functions. For example, in
order for smfPricesByDates() to work, Yahoo has to have historical quotes.

But if you have a data source that carries data for Indian stocks, you may
be able to use functions like RCHGetTableCell(), smfGetTagContent(), or
RCHGetWebData() to extract the data you want.
