Hi.  This function has lots of problems.
In addition to the problems you point out, here's a slightly different view.
Sometimes the Price, and Latest Price match.
Other times, the Price is corrupt, but the latest price is correct, and sometimes it's the other way around.
Sometimes the CIK codes or Exchange are missing, etc.
Other issues are bugs in Option pricing, etc.
I really hope they fix this soon, but I guess they never issue bug fixes.
