Does your research need in-depth historical financial data for North American companies? Has your supervisor told you to use Compustat data? If so, you need to take a look at Research Insight.
Research Insight includes both quarterly and annual data from Compustat dating back to the late 1970s for both active and inactive companies. You can use a wide variety of criteria – including industry, company account items, financial ratios, S&P indices, etc. – to produce data for groups of companies. It is possible to produce tailor-made reports and graphs for both individual firms and groups of companies and export data to Excel.
Research Insight is accessible on all PCs in MIRC and the Computer Studio. A detailed guide is available in MIRC. Due to its specialist nature, it is advisable to spend some time with a member of MIRC staff before using it for the first time.
Coming soon – new method of access via Capital IQ.
