I don't have access to the EV-to-EBITDA stuff since it's for paying members only, but try this:
=RCHGetTableCell("http://www.gurufocus.com/financials/CSCO",11,"except for per share",">EV-to-EBITDA")
Note that this will only work for companies with a long financial history or the TTM number won't be in column 11.

Dan mentioned that EV-to-EBITDA is for members only. Have you created the
IE security cookie, so that the members only data is available to EXCEL and
the add-in?

Does anyone have or know a good way to download all the current S&P 500 companies into a spreadsheet?


This site had a spreadsheet that used Finviz to get the data but the formula no longer works. I believe Finviz charges for that ability now.


Here was the formula:


={smfGetCSVFIle("http://finviz.com/export.ashx?v=152&f=idx_sp500&c=1,2,3,4")}


Any help is appreciated.


Thanks.

Finviz used to be able to do it and there was a template spreadsheet I used from this site but it no longer works. I believe Finviz charges for that ability now.


Here was the array formula that used to work:


={smfGetCSVFIle("http://finviz.com/export.ashx?v=152&f=idx_sp500&c=1,2,3,4")}


Any ideas for a new way to download the data?


Thanks.

I know of two easy sources:

1. MorningStar has a list of all holdings for ETFs, so you could grab the
CSV file for SPY:

=smfGetCSVFile("
http://portfolios.morningstar.com/fund/holdingsExport?t=SPY&exportType=details
")

However, although sector is a field on that file, industry group is not.

2. You can use Zacks screener. Use the S&P 500 index as your criteria, then
select whatever fields you want to view, and then export the file. That
can't be easily automated with the add-in.

Ok Thanks Randy. I will look into both options.

Thanks again Randy.

Is there anyway for me to find out such information easily without bombarding you with questions all the time?


I'm a relative noob to the add-in I'm afraid.

I had to go to the source web pages to see what was there. You can use the
various text strings to find out the specifics of an element -- see the
documentation. For example:

=RCHGetElementNumber("P-URL", 14388)

Just replace the five tildas in the returned URL with a ticker symbol.

Thanks Randy, that works perfectly. I have not used that SMF function before, so i'll look at it in more detail. It will probably help with a lot of sites where the Gettablecell doesn't work.
