I need key Stock Fundamentals like in http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ks?s=KO+Key+Statistics

But that page shows only the last quarter data, I need to analyze how that data has changed over past years. Yahoo provides Historical Data only for prices, where to find it for fundamentals also?

If you have a friend studying at almost any university you can get access to WRDS. Inside WRDS just go to Compustat which has all the info you need for dates since 1950.

Is there someone who could share its username & pwd? – sparkle Jul 8 '15 at 13:17
Sorry, I can't do that. But if you let me know what you need I might quickly pull an excel with it. – volcompt Jul 8 '15 at 13:34

There are two mainly (good) free sources available online:

They report the mainly market and fundamental data, so you will not find any particular fundamental accounting ratio. In the case you need particular ratio or data, you should get some better financial data provider, as, for instance, Bloomberg or Thompson Reuters.

I tried both but I didn't find time series for Fundamentals. I think access to Bloomberg professional will cost to me thousands of $. I'm just want to do some personal research – sparkle Jul 6 '15 at 18:23
@sparkle, what data do you need for? – Quantopic Jul 6 '15 at 19:30
Equities. Stocks. US and european stocks. – sparkle Jul 6 '15 at 19:52
This page is what I'm looking for, but it's yearly data. I need quarterly. financials.morningstar.com/ratios/… – sparkle Jul 6 '15 at 19:55
I meant dividends, EP ratio and so on. Anyway, look at quandl.com/data/DMDRN?keyword= – Quantopic Jul 6 '15 at 20:11
