Re: Thank You

Hi blitzen94, thanks for the nice words and yours too Murph! I check in every once in a while, a couple times a year, just to be sure everything is still running. Occasionally it takes a little work to fix something or another, but really it [more]

Re: Missing BMWM Charts?

OK everybody, looks like that extra delay between price requests from Yahoo did the job. I see almost every ticker has good historical data. The few missing ones are mostly indexes and symbols with a `.' in them, mostly. (Including Berkshire [more]

Re: Missing BMWM Charts?

Thanks Murph!! And to everyone, I hope you are all doing OK.

I looked into what is going on with the missing stock tickers. In almost all cases a missing ticker is because Yahoo's historical price download returned a price for only the [more]

Re: Missing BMWM Charts?

Hi Murph and all,

Thanks for reporting this. I am going to look into it. But I have to warn everyone that I just started a new "real job" 4 weeks ago so have a lot less time to look into these issues.

Still, I do see that [more]

Warning on this week's BMW charts

Alerted by one group member, some of the stock charts are way off... because the last dates for which prices were available in the download for just a few stocks is June 2019. I haven't looked into why that is, but please check the "through [more]

Re: New Year's Resolution

Hi Denny!

This sounds like a good idea. I guess what you're saying is you'd like to be able to generate the CAGR charts for any stock you come up with. I simply have not put any emphasis into interactive web software in my career (I [more]

Re: Chart for PEP missing?

Mike - there's no chart for PEP (Pepsico), even for 16 years.
Can you look at this?


Hi MJ, I took a look and there is missing data for May 2018 in the Yahoo feed for PEP, which appears to abort the calculation and reporting. I [more]

Re: the charts!?

Yahoo's servers occasionally return nonsensical data now, so the software has to catch these cases and quietly skip the problem stocks. This was the problem both last week and this week.

Charts are almost finished updating, and look OK [more]

Re: Charts are on their way

Mike,
We appreciate all the work you do to keep it up and running.


You're welcome, SubGuy and everyone else who uses the charts. I use them myself, not very often, but enough that I'd really miss them.

Charts are on their way

Sorry all, had some more trouble with Yahoo, which killed last week's chart update and has delayed this week's.

I found a Python script on Github that downloads historical data with the new Yahoo authentication structure, and after [more]

Re: Yahoo! says they fixed the adjusted close pr

Mike - Have a question to ask, would it be possible to reduce the lowest duration, currently at 16 years to say 10 years or 5 years. Admittedly, that increases the number of stocks that will be listed, other that that I don't see the [more]
