The finite-field scalar relativistic coupled cluster and configuration interaction, as well as the spin-orbit configuration interaction, methods are employed to calculate the static dipole polarizabilities for the lowest (6s2) 1S, (6s6p) Po and (6s5d) D excited states of atomic ytterbium. The results agree very well with existing experimental and best theoretical data and refine the set of ytterbium polarizabilities known so far. Similar techniques are used to calculate the electric quadrupole moments for the Po and D states.
