Negative Share Prices

Hi, I've used the new API and I've been running quality tests on the shareprices data, and I've found a fairly large number of quality issues. I'm not sure in what format you'd like these reported, but I'm creating individual issues for each "type" of error I've found. It might be that these errors have been fixed in the SimFin+ datasets...

Some prices contain huuuge swings - to very large negative values (something's really off with 2017-01-05);

  • Thanks - that's weird. I'll take a week in January to fix weird share prices/shares outstanding, I didn't have time yet unfortunately (I know you reported some cases like this before). If there's no easy fix I'll blacklist the companies in the bulk download.
  • Hi, great, I've implemented my own filtrering for now, and I'm disqualifying almost 10% of all companies. And that's before I've started investigating report values. I like the service, and I think it's probably under priced, I've been able to du some interesting things, but some quality issues will require human intervention - which will ni doubt be costly...

    But all in all, fantastic service!

    Cheers /m

    Thanks. The report data should be less problematic than the shares currently, as we have already quite good checks in place there.
