Scraped data from reuters website.
Example : - http://www.reuters.com/finance/stocks/incomeStatement?symbol=0016.HK
1) Need an input csv denominated file with list of symbols to download from
2) Need the data under the Finance Highlights section (http://www.reuters.com/finance/stocks/financialHighlights?symbol=0016.HK)
3) Need data under FULL FINANCIAL STATEMENTS(5yrs worth) for both interim and full year (http://www.reuters.com/finance/stocks/incomeStatement/detail?symbol=0016.HK)
4) All data scraped to be put under "individual symbol name_individual statements".dat
That is all.

The python SCRIPT is Mine to keep. I will run it on a regular basis.

Of course. Documentation (simple inline comments in source code) on what the different section does is needed for maintenance.

If you can use Scrapy, that will be great.

File format is not critical, though I just want to keep it simple to only contain the essential financial information without the HTML.

Excellent Suggestion from a bidder : Format the data into Excel viewable spreadsheets. (optional)

You should probably stress-test your code to ensure Reuters allow you to extract all the necessary information from a 100 symbols csv file.
