Here is a snippet of python code that I am trying to use for downloading
financial data; but, I do not understand why it returns information from
the second HTML page.
I am trying to read each row of the table at:
ticker = 
data = url.read()
Note, it does get all 50 rows of the first page; but, why does it also
get the first row of the "next" HTML page?
