Thomson Financial, an operating unit of The Thomson Corporation (NYSE: TOC; TSX: TOC) and leading provider of information and technology solutions to the worldwide financial community, today announced Thomson Worldscope quarterly data is now available in Thomson ONE Banker, its industry-leading desktop Investment Banking solution.
Thomson Worldscope is the premier, international, standardized, fundamental financial database. It includes detailed historical financial statement data, per share data, calculated ratios, pricing, and textual data. Thomson Worldscope data is collected from corporate documents such as annual reports and press releases, exchange and regulatory agency filings, and newswires.
In response to customer requests for a company fundamental database that includes comprehensive quarterly data, the Thomson Worldscope database now offers a greatly expanded collection of interim balance sheet, income statement and other data items, with up to 170 interim data points available for a company. Worldscope interim data items now available include:
- Up to 170 interim data items for each U.S. company
- Up to 95 interim data items for each non-U.S. company
- An additional 44 interim financial ratios for each company
- Interim data history dating back to 1998 for U.S. financials and back to 2001 for non-U.S. financials
These data items can be screened against and imported directly into spreadsheets for analysis.
