I have a sheet with multiple googlefinance formulas as well as with importhtml from Yahoo, and it's very, very slow.

So the question - if I wait for the loading all this data, will I see loaded data on next sheet opening, of it will be loaded for hours again?

Chances are that your spreadsheet will recalculate all those formulas each time you re-open the spreadsheet.

The official documentation no longer gives a definite answer, but it used to tell that the googlefinance() function refreshes every two minutes. The importhtml() function refreshes once an hour.
