Extract Yahoo Finance information easily with ImportFromWeb

To properly set yourself up to extract thousands of data points from Yahoo Finance, the first thing you need to do is copy the template of our Yahoo Finance Scraper and install the ImportFromWeb add-on into your Google Sheets. This is an easy process that just takes a minute and enables you to easily extract a high-volume of data from Yahoo Finance and most other websites.

Follow these steps:

  1. Make a copy of our Yahoo Finance Scraper here.

2. Simply, install the tool into your Google Sheets from the Google Workspace Marketplace following the step-by-step instructions indicated by the add-on. 

3. From there, you can access the tool by clicking “Add-ons” and activating ImportFromWeb within the spreadsheet. 

4. In the first tab, you will see a message ‘✓ You’re all set’ that indicates the add-on has been installed correctly and you’re ready to go!

Input the Stock Symbol into the Yahoo Finance Scraper

A stock symbol is a unique series of letters assigned to a security for trading purposes. Stocks listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) have four letters or less. Nasdaq-listed securities have up to five characters.

The only thing you need to know about the stock data you want to retrieve is the Stock Symbol. In Yahoo Finance the information about stocks is displayed in URLs such as this one:

In this example:

The Common URL to all market stocks:

The Stock Symbol: LIN

So, in the second tab of the Yahoo Finance Scraper, introduce as many stock values as you want, one per row, using this pattern: Common URL + STOCK SYMBOL

In a few seconds, you will see all the indicators for each stock value appear in the spreadsheet!
