    If i look in the CSV file, in my file, the ticker starts at rok and other
    companies like appl arent even there. Any ideas why this might be the case?
    (Im on Ubuntu so that might be the problem)

    Hi Sentdex

    Is your code for this available to download, I have typed it in and get

    value = source.split(gather + ‘:

    ‘)[1].split(‘

    ‘)[0]
    IndexError: list index out of range

    I know its probably a typo but I am going cross eyed trying to find it.

    WOW! 40 seconds! That took me 5 minutes in 30% of my FX-6100, I bet you’re
    using an i7, those things are productivity MONSTERS!

    And by the way thanks for the tutorials, great content and simplicity.
    YouTube needs more people like you.

    Just a thought but maybe try SortedContainers for your data append. It’ll
    be faster than Pandas as it wont do the dataframe copy (which it does on an
    append), and then finally convert to a dataframe at the end; which is a
    copy(sadly)

    using Mac, Anaconda gets this error.

    ticker = each_dir.split(“\”)[1]
    IndexError: list index out of range

    Some of source files are have a newline between the closing ‘‘ and

    ‘.

    Other files are missing ‘Total Debt/Equity (mrq)’ altogether.

    Here’s how I resolved it:
    “`
    if gather + ‘:

    ‘ in source:
    value = source.split(gather + ‘:‘)[1].split(‘

    ‘)[1].split(‘

    ‘)[0]
    else:
    value = ‘N/A’
    print ticker + ‘:’ + value
    “`

    Awesome tutorial thus far Harrison!

    I had no Programming language experience and start watching ur video after
    taking python class in codecademy. These are really great videos and I
    learned a lot from here, thx very much.

    May I have a basic question: When I forget to type “df = ” in code:

    “df = df.append({‘Date’:date_stamp,’Unix’:unix_time,’Ticker’:ticker,’DE
    Ratio’:value,}, ignore_index = True)”

    nothing is in .csv file produced, why?
