Because GFD includes historical data on over 20,000 companies, the GFD Search Tool is an essential feature that will enable you to locate the companies that you want to analyze. This File Search allows you to search by stock tickers, Standard Industrial Classification (SIC), North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), Central Index Key (CIK) number and Committee on Uniform Security Identification Procedures (CUSIP). The GFD Search Engine allows you to use key words to search either the names of the stocks or the additional information only GFD provides about the stocks. As an example, typing “General Electric” into the Keyword search enables you to find companies that have been acquired by General Electric. With the Filter Search, you can use categories such as Sector, Industry, Stock Market Index Membership, Equity Classification and others to find specific stocks.
