No doubt this comes from yahoo side. It was gradual: first I was not able to import portfolios, now you can not import tables through web queries. This makes yahoofinance absolutely useless. Comma delimited files (csv query) is the last thing left available but it provides only small portion of what was accessible before through web queries like financial statements, options, more statistics & many others. I find explanation to this that those who download data to excel do not go to the site and do not see ads and therefore this service do not bring revenue but it has cost. I tried to get some data from Reuters (like stats) and MarketWatch (like statements, options) and it works, I liked getting data from Yahoo more though. Hopefully they will bring it back, but I doubt. Then I really do not see the purpose of yahoo at all.
