I'm finding it almost impossible to read the HTML code on the new Yahoo
pages, to extract the news items, much less doing the filtering you desire.

How about the Reuters Key Developments instead?

Or, another source?

I did not know that extracting info from the new Yahoo pages was so complicated.

Actually, what I am interested on is to get press releases of stocks in our portfolio. My purpose is to track what does it happen to them.

For instance, we own Qlogic. Yahoo still keeps its page (, though it was acquired and removed from Nasdaq last week. But there is no info in Reuters right now: returns "page not found".

Another possible idea is to get the data from Bloomberg: has also a section called "Press releases" and is still shown. Can I get the info from there?

My idea is to track the press releases that are published for our portfolio (of less than one hundred stocks).

Randy, do you have any suggestion?
