I'm trying to calculate what the the P/E ratio for a company was 5 years ago.
I can use the API to get the price for a company on the date that I want, and this price is adjusted for splits so that there are no jumps in the price.
However, if I use the API to get the earnings per share on the same date, the data is not adjusted for splits, so there is no way to use the price and eps together to calculate the P/E ratio.
Could SimFin supply a means to get the historic price unadjusted for splits? This seems to me to be a really fundamental problem with the service, since P/E ratio is such an important indicator.
Thank you so much for providing this service, I can tell a lot of work went into it and I think it will help a lot of people
