GFD Adds Stocks and Proprietary Indices for the Copenhagen Stock Exchange

Global Financial Data has added monthly data on 88 companies listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange between 1893 and 1937. Using the data for these companies, GFD has also calculated 50 proprietary indices for Danish stocks during this period of time.

The data on the individual companies includes both monthly price data and dividends on the top 50 companies listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange between 1893 and 1937. Users can download price data for each company as well as a total returns showing the effect of reinvesting dividends. Shares have been classified by sector and industry to aid analysis. Data can be converted into other currencies and adjusted for inflation.

What is particularly interesting about the Danish stock market during this period of time is the Shipping Stock Bubble that occurred during World War I when Danish shipping companies took advantage of the country’s neutrality to ship goods between European countries. Until now, this bubble was poorly documented. Now it can be analyzed in detail.

GFD has used the data on individual companies to calculate proprietary indices for the Copenhagen Stock Market. This includes a general index, sector indices and indices for individual industries. Sector indices include data for the Consumer Discretionary, Consumer Staples, Finance, Materials, Industrials, Transports and Utilities and Telecommunications sectors. GFD has also calculated indices for 19 different industries, including ones for Banking and for Shipping. Indices are price-weighted, and are provided both as price and return indices. Information on individual companies that are included can be found by searching the UK Stocks Database and information on the Danish indices can be found by searching the GFD Indices. The data on the individual companies, as well as GFD’s proprietary indices are available to all subscribers to the UK Database.
