Hi all,

Diverging from my research based number crunching I am interested to see 
what, if any R packages are out there that can access daily market 
values of investment funds (e.g. using 
http://quote.morningstar.com/fund/f.aspx?t=PDMIX) then store the data 
value (i.e. NAV =$11.56 ) with date retrieved so these can be plotted 
with ggplot2 on some regular basis.

A web search turned up a confusing and complex array of R prediction 
models etc. but I am looking for plain vanilla way to retrieve fund 
values and store the values.
