20 Years of Financial Data Is Now Available at GuruFocus

July 06, 2015 | About:

We have made big progress lately with our coverage of Financial Data. This progress includes:

  1. Displaying 15 years of financial data on the website
  2. Data downloads to up to 20 years.

Twenty years of financial data covers more than two market cycles and we believe that with 20 years of financial data, our subscribers will have a better understanding of the business performances of the companies.

This is the summary of the data and functions in the new page of 20-year financial data. You can see an example here.

Data Covered (Up to 20 Years):

  1. Per share data
  2. Common size ratios
  3. Income statement
  4. Balance sheet
  5. Cash flow statement
  6. Valuation Ratios
  7. Valuation & Quality

Of course, every row of data is clickable. An annual chart and a quarterly chart will be displayed once the data is clicked. A trend line on the annual data displays the growth rate of the underlying data. For common size ratios such as ROE, ROA and profit margins, an industry median data is also displayed in the annual data chart to show the performance of the company compared with the industry.

For instance, the chart below shows the Operating Margin of Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT). Currently WMT has an operating margin of 5.6%, while the Retail industry has a median operating margin of 3.3%. Historically, WMT always has a higher operating margin (green line) than the industry median (blue line):


Excel Download

Premium Members can download the 15-year and 60-quarter data in Excel by clicking on the Excel icon above the financial data table. It can also be in CSV format.


The financial data is also in the same currency of the stocks displayed in the page. If the data was converted into this currency from its original currency, an exchange rate is displayed at the bottom of the data table. The page lists the other countries that the stock is also traded in. Clicking on those will display the financial data in the currencies of those countries.

Excel Add-In

The data is also available in the GuruFocus Excel Add-In, which allows subscribers to do fully customized research. This is for PremiumPlus members only.

Access Area

GuruFocus Premium Members have full access to the 15-year financial data for the regions they subscribe to, the Excel download and the charts. If you are not a Premium Member, we invite you for a 7-day free trial.
