The difference is that Yahoo is showing the unadjusted price that the security traded for on that date, while google is adjusting for price splits. This means that Google is showing how much you would have had to pay to get what is now one share. Since 1979, JNJ has split 3-for-1 once, and 2-for-1 four times. 3x2x2x2x2 = 48. If you bought 1 share at that ...

You are reading the balance sheet wrong. Everything Joe says is completely correct, but more fundamentally you have missed out on a huge pile of assets. "Current assets" is only short term assets. You have omitted more than $300B in long-term assets, primarily plant and equipment. The balance sheet explicitly says: Net tangible Assets (i.e. surplus of ...

I work on a buy-side firm, so I know how these small data issues can drive us crazy. Hope my answer below can help you: Reason for price difference: 1. Vendor and data source Basically, data providers such as Google and Yahoo redistribute EOD data by aggregating data from their vendors. Although the raw data is taken from the same exchanges, different ...

First - Google's snapshot - Then - Yahoo - I took these snapshots because they will not exist on line after the market opens, and without this context, your question won't make sense. With the two snapshots you can see, Yahoo shows the after hours trades and not just the official market close for the day. The amount it's down is exactly tracked from the ...

Should be noted that pacoverflow's answer is wrong. Yahoo back-adjusts all the previous (not current or future) values based on a cumulative adjustment factor. So if there's a dividend ex-date on December 19, Yahoo adjusts all the PREVIOUS (December 18 and prior) prices with a factor which is: 1 - dividend / Dec18Close

Such data is typically only available from paid sources due to the amount of research involved in determining the identity of delisted securities, surviving entities in merger scenarios, company name changes, symbol changes, listing venue changes, research of all capital events such as splits, and to ensure that the data coverage is complete.

[This answer has been updated to reflect changes to Yahoo's historical prices. It is accurate as of 2017/12/15.] Yahoo adjusts all historical prices to reflect a stock split. For example, ISRG was trading around $1000 prior to 2017/10/06. Then on 2017/10/06, it underwent a 3-for-1 stock split. As you can see, Yahoo's historical prices divided all prices ...

When there is a trade the shares were both bought and sold. In any trade on the secondary market there has to be both a buyer and a seller for the trade to take place. So in "lasttradesize" a buyer has bought the shares from a seller.

Exxon Mobil is one of the most profitable corporations in the world. Their annual earnings are typically in the $10s of billions of dollars. They have revenues in the hundreds of billions of dollars per year. They also return $10+ billion dollars to their stockholders each year in dividends and stock purchases. That's with $300bn market capitalization - ...

Atypically, Yahoo appears to show a grossed-up dividend (i.e. the dividend, adjusted for franking credits) rather than the actual dividend paid to a shareholder. As at 30 Apr 2018, Yahoo shows a dividend for Date 14 Feb 2018 of $2.8571. Commonwealth Bank (CBA) actually paid a $2 dividend, fully franked. Australia's company tax rate is currently 30%. ...

Google's RSI is using a 10 period on 2 minute bars - i.e. it is based upon the last 20 minutes of data. Yahoo's RSI is using a 14 period lookback on an undetermined timeframe (you could maybe mouse-over and see what incremental part of the chart is giving) and given the "choppier" price chart, probably 30 second or 1 minute bars. Given the difference in ...

Looking at the list of bonds you listed, many of them are long dated. In short, in a rate rising environment (it's not like rates can go much lower in the foreseeable future), these bond prices will drop in general in addition to any company specific events occurred to these names, so be prepared for some paper losses. Just because a bond is rated highly ...

Prior to 2005, the only SPY options that existed were the monthly ones that expire on the third Friday of every month. But in 2005, the Chicago Board Options Exchange introduced SPY weekly options that expire every Friday (except that there is no weekly option that expires on the same day as a monthly option). These weekly options only exist for 8 days - ...

To quote their disclaimer: Data is provided by financial exchanges and may be delayed as specified by financial exchanges or our data providers.

Generally Google gets their data, directly from the exchanges (Nasdaq, NYSE). This is really expensive -- tens of thousands of dollars a month just for the license from the exchange, and lots of telecom costs on top of that.

The Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company was established in 1902 as a private company. It first raised public funds around 1903 but had a limited shareholder base. By around 1929, it was reported as being tradeable as an OTC (over-the-counter) stock but it's likely that shares were traded well before this. On 14 Jan 1946, the stock was listed on ...

To calculate it yourself you need to calculate the standard deviation (or variance but that is just the standard deviation squared) of the returns. Unfortunately the returns on stocks are distributed log-normally rather than normally but that isn't a problem as you can simply calculate it by log(p_t)-log(p_t-1) where p_t is the price for the current period ...

Stock splits are generally automatically handled by stock markets, brokerages, and online tools. (I've never had to handle one manually.) So the data in Yahoo Finance will automatically be adjusted. But if your Yahoo Portfolio is just a tracking log that you entered your own data into (that is, if it is not synced to a brokerage account), you'll probably ...

For the past 5 quarters the dividend has been 20 cents per quarter. So based on a price of $4.46, the yield would be 17.95% which is what Robinhood says (raspberry sound!). However, the dividend has been cut and it will be 3 cents on the next ex-dividend date of Mar 6th. So that means that based on the new dividend of 3 cents, the yield is 2.69%. Based on ...

Traditionally options expired on the 3rd Wednesday of the months of Mar, Jun, Sep, Dec as this day was never a holiday. See IMM dates. However as option use exploded there were monthly and weekly options created on different schedules. The exchange will specify when its options expire in the contract.

I've never seen a dividend, split or other corporate action during the day, but I have seen trade suspended a few times when something big happened. The market opening price is not in general the same as the close of the previous day. It can gap up or down and does frequently. I don't know of an api to find out if the dividend was cash or stock, but stock ...
