Company CIK Number

  • edited August 2020
    We have the CIKs the only thing is that this is US specific, so right now it would make sense to have it in the datasets but if we add more international companies this would lead to a lot of "empty" fields.
    There is also a way to extract the CIK already if you need it right now, which is using the "source" column. In the source URL (that leads to the Edgar), the CIK is part of the URL. For Apple for example CIK is 320193 and that can be found after edgar/data in the source URL:

    https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/320193/000032019320000062/0000320193-20-000062-index.htm

    (see the part /data/320193/)
  • And the "source" should be available in the bulk datasets as well as the API.
  • Oh excellent, I'll try using the URL then, thank you for pointing this out!
