EMbeDS has secured access to another important source of information; the CRSP US Stock Databases.
The CRSP US Stock Databases, curated by The University of Chicago - Booth School of Business, contain daily and monthly market and corporate action data for over 32,000 active and inactive securities with primary listings on the NYSE, NYSE MKT, NASDAQ, Arca and Bats exchanges, as well as the CRSP broad market indexes. These databases provide remarkably comprehensive corporate action information and highly accurate total return calculations.
More information about the CRSP US Stock Databases can be found here, and a guide for installing a PC client to query and download the data can be found in the pdf attachment.
Researchers interested in accessing CRSP who are not affiliated with the Sant'Anna School should send a request for a temporary guest account to Cristiana Bettelli (firstname.lastname@example.org) indicating their first and last name, institutional affiliation and a brief explanation of the intended use of the data.
