Importing prices from Google Finances. SS won't allow me to do it and instead keeps crashing & closing the program.

Import from Yahoo works again, for some reason. That is how I am doing it now.

I've switched to ASCII importing when the yahoo issues started back in May. For me that wasn't too big a problem since I was already doing manual imports for forex data.

@mahkoh Is there anywhere to get all market data via acsii? I have found the downloading the full symbol list included in SS via yahoo gets about 1/2 way through then fails. However, looking at the data shows that it was up to date. If you try to run any scans though it fails so then I rebuild sector indexes and then everything works properly again. Be nice to get ascii for the whole market. Thanks

At this point I'm developing systems for stocks that pay a significant dividend. The pool is some 150 stocks, I obtain the prices from Stockfetcher's csv file in one go. If you upgrade to the advanced subscription you can go as far as 1000 tickers.

Just be aware that your data will not be adjusted for splits and dividends. Hence my idea to play these tickers. If it all works out as expected the strategies should be profitable, and any occasional dividend you run into is extra.

Can you provide a list of the 150 stocks? Are any of these div aristocrats? What criteria did you use to select this particular pool?

Thanks

Rich

Thanks Karen, it is the 10 yr dividend sharedlist. As the name already suggests the company has to have a 10 year dividend history and a minimum yield of 3%

Speaking of "3% minimum yield" ...
I found this a few weeks ago ...

I don't understand why he chose "payout ratios below 30%" , but the 3% min yield is the same.
