Intrinio is on a mission to make financial data affordable and easy to access, and one way we do that is by providing historical market cap in Excel and API formats. Our support team, who you can chat with by clicking the green icon on the bottom right-hand corner of this page, get a lot of questions about market capitalization, so we figured it must be a data point that many analysts and developers need.
This blog shows how to get historical market cap data, as well as hundreds of other financial metrics, in Excel for free. If you'd like to skip ahead, or follow along, download the Excel template that I'll be demonstrating here. By the end of this blog you'll be able to pull in historical time series data for any US security.
Feel free to start with this video:
Stock exchanges have a monopoly on their own data. No matter how many resellers of stock prices pop up, a small number of exchanges control who accesses the data and how they can access it. At the same time, app developers and financial analysts must have stock prices or their analyses won't work. The default solution to this conflict of interest, between exchanges that want to maximize their profit and consumers who must have data, is for pricing data to be either expensive or difficult to use.
Intrinio's mission is to make financial data affordable and easy to access and we are working hard to find new solutions to get pricing data into the hands of those that need it to drive decisions. This blog explains the real time, end of day (EOD), and historical security prices Intrinio provides, how users can access them, how much they cost, and where we are heading next.
Our mission at Intrinio is to power a generation of applications that will fundamentally change the way our broken financial system works. Intrinio data feeds form the basis of large enterprise business reporting applications, Fintech web-apps, simple mobile apps and even blogs. It's rewarding to see our product come to life at the hands of today's most innovative developers building powerful things.
We're lucky to be in a business where we grow together with our customers, and we're proud to show off their hard work. Each blog in this series will feature a developer or a startup that has leveraged our financial data feeds to build something incredible.
These are their stories.
