getSplits(Symbol, 
          from = "1970-01-01",
          to = Sys.Date(), 
          env = parent.frame(), 
          src = "yahoo", 
          auto.assign = FALSE, 
          auto.update = FALSE, 
          verbose = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

Symbol

The Yahoo! stock symbol

from

date from in CCYY-MM-DD format

to

date to in CCYY-MM-DD format

env

where to create object

src

data source (only yahoo is valid at present)

auto.assign

should results be loaded to env

auto.update

automatically add split to data object

verbose

display status of retrieval

...

currently unused

Details

Eventually destined to be a wrapper function along the lines of getSymbols to different sources - this currently only support Yahoo data.

Value

If auto.assign is TRUE, the symbol will be written to the environment specified in env with a .div appended to the name.

If auto.update is TRUE and the object is of class xts, the dividends will be included as an attribute of the original object and be reassigned to the environment specified by env.

All other cases will return the split data as an xts object. NA is returned if there is no split data.

Note

This function is very preliminary - and will most likely change significantly in the future.
