Financial application to download stock data and conduct analysis

This post is my first. I have 35 Rule Breaker growth companies in which I own stock whose total market price is currently in the mid six figures. Each quarter I compare eight financial performance measures plus numerous other data points from which I compare to the previous eight quarters. To accomplish this, I entered around 20 numbers per stock into an Excel spreadsheet. This is 700 entries plus error corrections. I was wondering if anyone uses an application where I can simply enter the stock symbol and download the company’s financial data directly into an Excel file? A plus would be if the application did financial analysis.

AAII has a product called SIPRO that allows you to download stock spreadsheet data. You could then write excel scripts to automatically populate your spreadsheet.

Thanks for your help. It appears AAII products are not compatible with apple computers.


I don’t know exactly the nature of what you want to do or how picky you are with feeds, but you could use GOOGLEFINANCE - Google Docs Editors Help to use the GOOGLEFINANCE function to get some basic data, then you could copy the cells into excel. Good luck!
