Reuters Financials Data Guide

The Reuters Financials dataset available through Interactive Brokers provides cash flow, balance sheet, and income metrics. Data are time-indexed to the relevant fiscal period as well as the filing date for point-in-time backtesting.

In Trader Workstation and elsewhere, Interactive Brokers formerly referred to this data as being sourced from Reuters but no longer does so. You may see the data referred to in Trader Workstation as being sourced from Refinitiv. Refinitiv is the re-branded name of the financial and risk business of Thomson Reuters. In QuantRocket, the original "Reuters" name is still used.

Valuation metrics

Valuation metrics such as EPS or P/E ratio compare a company's fundamentals to its share price or market value. These metrics are useful for comparing companies, unlike metrics such as net income which scale with the size of the company and thus aren't typically used for company-to-company comparisons.

The Reuters financial statements dataset is fairly "raw" and does not include any precalculated valuation metrics. You can, however, calculate valuation metrics yourself in conjunction with historical price data. See the usage guide for an example of calculating enterprise multiple.

Point-in-time date fields

The financial statements dataset provides two date fields:

  • FiscalPeriodEndDate: the end date of the fiscal period the report is for
  • SourceDate: the date the report was released (for U.S. companies, this is usually the Form 10-K filing date)

The SourceDate field can be used for point-in-time analysis.


Financial statement restatements

The financial statements dataset includes restatements.

Restatements, like the original statements, are time-indexed to their release date via the SourceDate field, so you know when the data became available. Restated data are distinguished from as-reported data, making it possible to exclude restated data from analysis and backtests if you choose.

When restated data is available for a particular fiscal period and financial statement (income statement, balance sheet, or cash flow statement), the corresponding as-reported financial statement is not provided by Reuters. As depicted in the table below, this can create a gap in the data as your research and backtest won't have access to the as-reported financials that would have been available in real time.

Corporate eventFiling dateIncluded in Reuters data
2014 annual reportFebruary 4, 2015yes
2015 annual reportFebruary 3, 2016no (overwritten by restatement)
2016 annual report and restatement of 2015 reportFebruary 2, 2017yes

This limitation only applies to financial statements that pre-date your use of QuantRocket. As you continue using QuantRocket to keep your Reuters fundamentals database up-to-date, QuantRocket will preserve the as-reported and restated financials as they appear in real-time, increasing the accuracy of your backtests.

The occurrence rate of restatements is shown below for a variety of countries:
