    I was hoping someone might be able to give me a heads up on where I might be able to find a majority of the data points listed below in a consolidated format. Extra points if historical figures are also available.

    1) 5yr EPS growth
    2) Book value
    3) Debt (per share prefferable)
    4) P/CF (or just CF)

    I'd like this stuff in a format easily converted to an excel worksheet. But I'm willing to do the legwork if that isn't available.

    Get you hands on a point-in-time database. These include Compustat, Factset, ThomsonOne, Reuters, Bloomberg and I believe kx systems also has a historical database. These are expensive.

    A cheaper solution is www.portfolio123.com, but they only go back to year 2000 or so.

  7. Bloomberg isn't a PIT database, in the sense that one can easily compile data inclusive of dead tickers as of an historical PIT.
