U.S. Stocks Database

Wall Street Sign Stocks
The US Stocks Database is the newest addition to suite of GFD products. The USDatabase complements the GFDatabase by enabling you to combine the financial indicators from the United States and 200 other countries with the historical price data on over 40,000 individual current and delisted stocks from every US exchange. The USDatabase is the most extensive collection of individual securities ever compiled including delisted stocks from National and Regional Stock exchanges such as NASDAQ, the New York, Chicago, Philadelphia or Boston Stock Market Exchange.

The USDatabase includes:

The US Stock Database provides the most extensive historical coverage and an impressive set of current market coverage, including fundamentals. Our daily stock market histories begin as early as 1962 for major US securities. We offer the original trading values for each day, and enable you to adjust for splits and distributions. In addition to the stock market price and volume for each day, we also provide information on the date and amount of dividend payments, splits and distributions made by each company.

GFD combines historical information not only on the components of major indices such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500, but also historical information on sector indices. This information links directly to the data on individual stocks. For example, you can analyze how Oil stocks performed in the 1970s or study the behavior of the Software stocks during the 1990s. No other data vendor allows for this cross section of analysis in one source.
