Love this function and using it to manage my own portfolio. Great replacement for the old yahoo webservice and super to have this integrated into Excel directly.

 

A few items would like to see in the roadmap

 

1. Live Stock Indices FTSE100, DAX, DJI etc.. if possible.

2. Adding the ability to auto-refresh specific stock data type (Price) cells every xx Minutes natively.

3. Historical price close data for a given date value

4. Dividend Yield Information (Yield, payment date when available...)

 

thanks! 

 

Anyone have a way to get dividend data into a spreadsheet?

@dniezby , @cuong ,

 

Is there a roadmap for when dividends and dividend yield will be added to Excel stock data types? About a year ago I wrote a bog post on the popular finance website Seeking Alpha regarding Excel stock types, and I received a lot of feedback that stock types won't be widely adopted until dividend information is included. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Dividend Yield Information is very important!
