I would like get a description of what a company does and send it out to a debug window for quick access.

Maybe something similar to

https://www.wealth-lab.com/Forum/Posts/Estimate-EPS-and-revenue-data-for-latest-quarter-33870

but instead, scrape the company profile page of yahoo finance (e.g. https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/MSFT/profile?p=msft ) and output the "Description" to debug window?

It's already implemented in Community Components:

Get symbol data from Morningstar.com (sector, industry, code etc.)
