Where to get stocks financial information

Wednesday, Aug 07 2019 by


I'm new here by the way and just starting my journey on picking stocks...I'm a qualified accountant so am trying to use financial information to help screen.

Can anyone recommend a good (and cheap!) place to get financial information on companies going back 10 years (or more)?  

I've looked at a few, and it looks like gurufocus is the best (although not cheap), partly because on the one company I looked at, the Morningstar numbers were actually wrong (when I compare to the companies house financial statements)!!!

I just want to run my own numbers and do some Keith Ashworth Lord / Buffett type analysis.

The numbers here usually go back 10 years. You just have to put up with the inconvenience of downloading a 2013 Stockreport pdf then manually copying the old figures to excel. The figures for the last 6 years can be cut & pasted.

1 If I am missing an "easy" way to access older figures & copy to excel, please advise !
2 I wonder how Stockopedia determine what customers want from the site. Analysis of long term data is one thing I certainly like to do.

I would also welcome an easier way to do this.

Hi jonesj,

Generally using the "contact support" function is your best bet (the green speech mark button at the bottom right on desktop, or the "contact support" option of the profile pic dropdown menu on phone or tablet). The suggestion then gets added to our product board, where it gets discussed by the team. I've just added your vote for long term data to our product board so no need to do it here!
