Every day, stocks delist because they are acquired, merge with another firm, reorganize or go bankrupt. Many services discontinue the data for these companies when they delist creating a survivorship bias for stock market analysis.

The US Stock Database solves the survivorship bias problem by providing data on over 10,000 delisted companies. Daily data are provided back to 1972 and monthly data are made available back to a stock’s inception. Delisted stocks are licensed differently, and thusly are subject to other terms and conditions.

Three options are offered when analyzing GFD’s historical stock market data. For each stock we provide historical data at market prices. The GFD Downloader allows you to adjust the prices for stock splits, stock dividends and stock distributions to obtain split-adjusted data. You can also obtain total return information on stocks by adjusting for both splits and dividends.

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 could use categories such as Sector, Industry, Stock Market Index Membership, Equity Classification and others to find specific stocks.

Want to know how Energy stocks performed in the 1970s and 1980s? You can use our Filter Search to find both current and delisted companies in the oil industry in the 1970s. You can find the data for American Telephone & Telegraph, AT&T Inc. and AT&T Corp. You can not only get the data for Citi, but for Primerica, Citicorp, Travelers and other companies Citi acquired, as well as Shearson Loeb Rhoades, Inc.

We also provide corporate descriptions for each company so you can understand what goods or products the companies produced or what services they provided. Our corporate history also describes what happened to the company when it delisted.

GFD includes information on the historical components of major stock indices so you can analyze all of the companies that were included in these indices in the past, not just the ones that have survived.
