The StockReports are the most popular feature of Stockopedia. The insights contained within them are vital for making informed decisions. We are therefore committed to ensuring that the StockReports are as useful as possible. Over the last few months, we have used your comments and feedback to make a number of small yet impactful improvements...

New display for Fiscal Years

You asked: 

"Stockopedia is missing data for some stocks, such as Wickes (LON:WIX) and 4imprint (LON:FOUR). It appears that there were two statements in the same calendar year, but only one statement is reflected on the StockReport."

We answered

We have updated our data import process. Now, all statements for every stock are reflected on the StockReport, even in cases where two annual statements are issued within the same calendar year. We also made a subtle tweak to the webpage design. These changes ensure that the data is presented clearly, especially when multiple annual reports are issued in a single calendar year.

Let’s take a closer look at 4imprint…

Example - 4imprint:

4imprint produced two annual reports in 2022; one for the year ending January 2022 and another for the year ending December 2022. Both were published within the same calendar year, but both reports covered different fiscal periods. See here…


The first annual report for 2022, i.e. the January report, has very little to do with the firm’s financial performance in 2022. We have therefore updated the headers on the StockReport tables so that they now indicate Fiscal Years, rather than the year corresponding to the Period End Date (see below).

While changing the display, we also updated our data import process so that we import all annual reports published within a given calendar year. This means that the StockReport displays data for both Fiscal Years - i.e. 2021 and 2022. Previously, data for the 2022 Fiscal Year was missing.






  • Have you changed the display for all stocks? Yes. The StockReport will always show the Fiscal Year in the table headers.
  • Is the Fiscal Year the same as the Period End Date? Usually, but not always. The Fiscal Year will typically be the same as the Period End Date. However, this is not always the case. For example, retailers sometimes report a 53-week year ending in January, followed by a 52-week year ending in December to cover their full Christmas sales period.
  • Can I still see the Period End Date? Yes. The Period End Date will be the date found in official company statements. It can be found via the dropdown for individual statement pages (see below).

Improved accuracy for broker forecasts

You asked:

“A case of fat fingers with the broker forecasts — has the decimal wandered off to the wrong place?”

We answered:

We resolved a glitch in the way we processed the data on dual-listed stocks, notably American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) as well as other secondary listings. Let’s look at the details…

When we build StockReports, we use data from several separate sources, including:

  • Refinitiv Knowledge Direct (historic data);
  • Refinitiv I/B/E/S (broker estimates).

Different sources sometimes presents data differently. For example, I/B/E/S may show £0.97, whereas Refinitiv Knowledge Direct may show 97p. We standardise this data, so that historic figures are consistent with future estimates. However, we found a specific issue with dual-listed stocks, particularly ADRs.

We resolved the data for many companies, but Baidu and Alibaba were particularly interesting. The US ADRs for Baidu and Alibaba are the primary listings. Our processes previously assumed ADRs were secondary listings. This resulted in inaccurate StockReports, although the issue has been addressed…

Baidu (HKG:9888)



Alibaba (HKG:9988)



Banco Santander-Chile (NYQ:BSAC)

Again, there was a huge jump before the fix. Now the data is presented more accurately and more consistently.



Alibaba (HKG:9988)





More improvements for broker data

In fixing the decimal placing issue around broker forecast, we also resolved other problems.

  • We show estimates data for additional years. See below for Volkswagen’s 2024 estimates.
  • We show estimates data for additional data points.
    • See Net Profit for Berkshire Hathaway.
    • See Analyst Consensus and Forecasts for Sinotrans.

Prompt updating of price data for European markets

You asked:

“Hello, it's Tuesday, after the market close, and I've noticed that the price quotes for my Swiss stocks are outdated, showing information from Monday.”


We answered:

For some European markets, we are unable to source intraday price data. For these exchanges, we have optimised our data import process to ensure you receive the latest information more promptly.

Previously, price data for a small number of European exchanges was imported overnight, when financial ratios were calculated. Now, we import the data much sooner after the market closes so it can be displayed as soon as possible.

These exchanges are the: 

  • Bulgarian Stock Exchange; 
  • Budapest Stock Exchange;
  • Irish Stock Exchange; 
  • Oslo Stock Exchange;
  • Warsaw Stock Exchange;
  • Bucharest Stock Exchange;
  • Belgrade Stock Exchange;
  • SIX Swiss Exchange;
  • Istanbul Stock Exchange.

Your feedback is valued

We know that the accuracy and timeliness of our data is important. Therefore, we are always looking at ways to improve our data pipelines while, at the same time, ensuring that we're receiving the highest-quality input from our data provider, Refinitiv. Towards this end, we have raised hundreds of support tickets with Refinitiv this year, on your behalf.

Your feedback plays a vital role in ensuring that the Stockopedia service fulfils your needs. If you want to talk in more detail about a specific issue on the site, the best way of feeding back to us is reaching out to our customer support team via the green Intercom button on your screen.
