Stock Market Functions add-in, Version 2.1.2012.12.29 (C:\Program Files\SMF Add-in; 1)

was my problem, I think...

I downloaded the latest beta, but it still doesn't work.

I tried to replace the symbols with a list of my stocks and that didn't work either.

Some of the sheet works, but I guess it's just not going to work for me

Sorry to have bothered you.

My sheet still works, so I'm happy.

WOW! That is a really nice spreadsheet. Now I just have to figure out how to use it.

Thanks, Kermit

This file just gives me #NAME? for almost all the fields.

How do I fix that?

Hi Randy,

Having trouble getting the Forward P/E out of this mess.

Would like to get the Industry Forward P/E also, if it's not too much
trouble.

Thanks very much.

Sounds like you cut and pasted things incorrectly (be sure to edit special
to paste as text, not as HTML). The formula would not have the ability to
change the formatting of a cell to be a hyperlink. It can only place a
value in the cell.

The first formula returns 7.87 for me.

The "2" in the last formula says to get the content of the 2nd table cell
(i.e. "td") following the ">Forward P/E" string. The smfGetTagContent()
function grabs everything, including the HTML markup code within the table
cell, while RCHGetTableCell() automatically strips out any HTML code from
the table cell, leaving any remaining content.

Thanks Randy. Of course you're right.

The first line did work. I dorked it up in a manner not worth our time explaining.

There was an earlier discussion that I can't find now, about pulling the entire table of data from Guru and doing a vlookup. When you have an elaborate spreadsheet of items you want to evaluate, I'm guessing it's quicker to pull the whole table? Do you have to just put that table in another tab and then draw from that for your evaluation spreadsheet?

About how many queries (roughly) in a spreadsheet does it start to be more efficient to do that?

Thanks so much.

Best regards,

Jim

It was actually using VBA code to open the GuruFocus XLS dataset and
copying over the "Historical Financial" worksheet, based on a list of
ticker symbols:

Set wb1 = ActiveWorkbook
For Each oCell In Range("A1:A4")
sTicker = oCell.Value
If sTicker = "" Then Exit For
Workbooks.Open Filename:="
http://www.gurufocus.com/download_dataset.php?symbol=" & sTicker
Sheets("Historical Financial").Name = sTicker & "-Financial"
Sheets(sTicker & "-Financial").Copy Before:=wb1.Sheets(1)
Windows("download_dataset.php").Close False
Next oCell

It's actually a pretty slow process. But does get 20 years of annual and
quarterly periods. An advantage is once you did it, you wouldn't need to do
it again for the same company. At least not until financial statements
change. But then you'd need a process to delete an old copy as well.

But saving all of the worksheets could make for a pretty large workbook. It
might actually make more sense to download the XLS file as needed and save
it. Then just use normal EXCEL formulas to reference the save workbooks
directly.

[Attachment(s) from Randy Harmelink included below]

This interested me, so I took a stab at it, using Guru Focus TTM data. I'm a premium member, and not sure if some of the data items collected are premium data items. I'm also using a few advanced techniques in the smfUpdateDownloadTable process (note defined names to pick up the relative location column items).
I did have some companies with no capital expenditures, so the ratio should probably be changed to a comparison. And some had no net income data element (I suspect financial institutions).
The companies I used were dividend champions, plus the 3 passing companies in the article. Using an online stock screener to get a limited number of candidates, then running them on this workbook for final computations, may be the best way to go. Please don't use this to bulk download LARGE amounts of data and THEN screen.

Looks like Enterprise value is only available to premium members on
GuruFocus. You could pick up the current value from Yahoo instead:

=RCHGetTableCell("http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ks?s=MMM",1,">Enterprise

I built a screen for Stock Investor Pro evaluating just the prior years data. I eliminated OTC, ADR/ADS, Utilities and Financial sectors from consideration. Only 19 companies cut the mustard and all look to be good candidates. There are a few that came up as potential buys once their technicals look just a little better (MACD, RSI, Stochastics, etc.).

I was looking at my Daily trade alerts and decided to read this article.
The article is suppose to be a method of determining "Quality and value" as the article states"

"What you'll find below is a nearly foolproof way to evaluate the quality and the value of any business."

http://dailytradealert.com/2015/06/25/before-you-buy-another-stock-read-this-3/

After reading it I thought I'd try creating a sample SMF ADDIN workbook to calculate the values mention in the paper.

In looking thru the RCHGetElementNumber-Element-Definitions.xls for the proper elements
I got "error" return on 2 elements 3900 and 3901.

I had an older version than the one in the work-in-progress folder. So I upgraded to the latest version as shown the table below.

No. 2. Shareholder payout ratio: capital returned to shareholders / capital expenditures (should be greater than 1).
No. 3. Return on invested capital: net income / long-term debt + shareholder equity (should be greater than 20%).
No. 4. Returns on net tangible assets: net income / net tangible assets (should be greater than 20%).


I'd appreciate any help anyone can provide as to why elements 3900 and 3901 is not working?

With no trading costs, annual returns since 1999 are 9.65% per year, compared to 3.31% or the S&P 500 index.
If I add the 5th restriction, annual returns go up to 13.51%

I'm looking for a stock screener that will produce a stock list based on the 4 items below.
I'd appreciate any help. Naturally, I'd prefer a free stock screener.
These items are out of my normal scans on stock screeners. I am more of a short term trader.
But a friend ask if I could point him to an online stock screener that provides the below information:
No. 1. Cash operating profit margin: cash from operations / revenue (should be greater than 20%).
No. 2. Shareholder payout ratio: capital returned to shareholders / capital expenditures (should be greater than 1).
No. 3. Return on invested capital: net income / long-term debt + shareholder equity (should be greater than 20%).
No. 4. Returns on net tangible assets: net income / net tangible assets (should be greater than 20%).
Thanks,
Kermit

Unfortunately, Yahoo has neglected to provide 1 year target price, beta, dividend and dividend yield in their download data since about mid March. Myself and others have repeatedly asked Yahoo to fix this issue since then, to no avail. They just seem to ignore any feedback they get.

As a workaround I have been using =RCHGetElementNumber("ticker",989)/Latest Price or alternatively =RCHGetElementNumber("ticker",990). Element 989 is YahooKS Dividend, element 990 is YahooKS Dividend Yield.


I prefer to use the first example because I keep my RCHGetElementNumber retrievals on a separate worksheet and usually update them weekly whereas I use =RCHGetYahooQuotes in array form on a different sheet to do daily updates. Yield will fluctuate based on price so I divide the dividend by the latest price to keep the yield up to date, assuming Yahoo is providing accurate data.


I wish Yahoo would just fix the issue. Here`s a link to the Yahoo "Suggestions" page:

You don't have to look too far to find complaints about the problem. You can add your votes to the complaints or provide your own feedback, maybe Yahoo will do something to fix it but I'm not holding my breath.
