Need help extracting date from text in Python


I have data that comes in every day via python code as such:

id="ContentPlaceHolder1_cph_main_cph_main_SummaryGrid">\r\n\t\t<tr class="tr-header">\r\n\t\t\t<th scope="col">&nbsp;</th><th class="right-align" scope="col">Share<br>Price</th><th class="right-align" scope="col">NAV</th><th class="right-align" scope="col">Premium/<br>Discount</th>\r\n\t\t</tr><tr>\r\n\t\t\t<td>Current</td><td class="right-align">$19.14</td><td class="right-align">$21.82</td><td class="right-align">-12.28%</td>\r\n\t\t</tr>

I need to extract the 2 prices and percentage values, in this example the "$19.14" "$21.82" and "-12.28%", but I am having trouble figuring out how to parse through and pull, is there a way to do this by looping through and searching for the text before/after?

The text before and after is always the same but the date changes. If not possible by this method, is there another way? Thank you very much!


Here is the desired output:

from bs4 import BeautifulSoup

markup = """
<div class="row-fluid">
 <div class="span6">
  <p class="as-of-date">
   <span id="ContentPlaceHolder1_cph_main_cph_main_AsOfLabel">
    As of 9/24/2021
  <div class="table-wrapper">
    &lt;table class="cefconnect-table-1 table table-striped" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5" 


soup = BeautifulSoup(markup, 'html.parser')

tags= soup.select_one('#ContentPlaceHolder1_cph_main_cph_main_AsOfLabel').get_text()
print(tags.replace('As of ', ' '))
