Does anyone know of a reasonably priced source of historical earnings that include:
Stock Symbol
Release Date
Consensus Estimate EPS
Actual EPS

And it goes back 10+ years?

I've looked at scraping some sites like briefing.com (no estimates for historical), yahoo (only go back 1 year), and a few others, but not much luck yet. I haven't delved too deeply into paid services yet.

Unfortunately, they only go back 90 days. Do you have any info on their paid services? I sent an e-mail, but have no response yet.

Really, I just looked at Citibank (C), and they went back to 1999.

OK, I had been looking at the daily calendars, and you can only get a calendar of all stocks for the past 90 days.

I did look at C per your recommendation. While the list goes back to 99, after April 05, the estimate data is all "n/a".

Not as far back as I'd like, but better than anything else I've found, so thank you for that!

I guess free services offer just a taste. You'll have to call the company for more data pricing.
