NasdaqQuery

This gem initially includes just one feature: to look up a company's dividend history. This is useful for calculating a company's beta, which can be computed by a regression that includes, among other factors, a stock's cum-dividend earnings over time.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'nasdaq_query'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install nasdaq_query

Usage

Here's how you'd look up Apple's dividend history:

require 'nasdaq_query'

entries = NasdaqQuery::DividendHistory.for_symbol("aapl")
entries.length     # => 32
entries.first      # => {:ex_eff_date=>#<Date: 2013-02-07 ((2456331j,0s,0n),+0s,2299161j)>, 
                   #     :type=>"Cash", 
                   #     :cash_amt=>2.65, 
                   #     :declaration_date=>#<Date: 2013-01-23 ((2456316j,0s,0n),+0s,2299161j)>, 
                   #     :record_date=>#<Date: 2013-02-11 ((2456335j,0s,0n),+0s,2299161j)>, 
                   #     :payment_date=>#<Date: 2013-02-14 ((2456338j,0s,0n),+0s,2299161j)>}
