Macro too fast for Web Query

I have the following code:

Code:
Sub MorningstarPriceTarget()
Dim sPath As String, sName As String
Dim bk As Workbook
Dim sSymbol As String
Dim sDestination As String
'Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim c As Range

Application.DisplayAlerts = False
sPath = "C:\Users\Capital Fortress\Desktop\Capital Fortress Ratings\Archived Reports\Excel Original\"
sName = Dir(sPath & "*.xlsm")
Do While sName <> ""
Set bk = Workbooks.Open(sPath & sName)
With Sheets("Morningstar FV").Select
sSymbol = Range("B6").Value

With ActiveSheet.Range("B16:E54").ClearContents
End With
    With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:= _
        "URL;http://analysis.morningstar.com/analystreport/ar.aspx?symbol=" & sSymbol, _
        Destination:=Range("B16"))
        .Name = "ar.aspx?symbol=" & sSymbol
        .FieldNames = True
        .RowNumbers = False
        .FillAdjacentFormulas = False
        .PreserveFormatting = True
        .RefreshOnFileOpen = True
        .BackgroundQuery = True
        .RefreshStyle = xlInsertDeleteCells
        .SavePassword = False
        .SaveData = True
        .AdjustColumnWidth = True
        .RefreshPeriod = 0
        .WebSelectionType = xlSpecifiedTables
        .WebTables = "1,2,3"
        .WebFormatting = xlWebFormattingNone
        .WebPreFormattedTextToColumns = True
        .WebConsecutiveDelimitersAsOne = True
        .WebSingleBlockTextImport = False
        .WebDisableDateRecognition = False
        .WebDisableRedirections = False
        .Refresh BackgroundQuery:=True
    End With
End With

        Sheets("Ratings_New").Select
        bk.Close Savechanges:=True
        sName = Dir()
    Loop
End Sub

Which works great except for the fact that it saves and closes the workbook before the web query can run and pull data into the 'Morningstar FV' tab. I tried adding an application wait line in different spots but it still did no good. Is there anyway I can tell the macro to only go on to save and close the workbook after data has been pulled in?

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)

Having you tried passing the BackgroundQuery argument as false?
