Regarding https://www.quandl.com/data/SF1-Core-US-Fundamentals-Data/documentation/indicators

I would like to get the sales of a company retrieved.

How can this be determined?

  • $\begingroup$ I found this http://www.investopedia.com/ask/answers/122214/what-difference-between-revenue-and-sales.asp article which mentions a difference between the two terms $\endgroup$ – user7468395 May 5 '17 at 21:01
  • $\begingroup$ The difference is semantic. Sharadars definition for Revenues is "Amount of Revenue recognized from goods sold, services rendered, insurance premiums, or other activities that constitute an earning process. Interest income for financial institutions is reported net of interest expense and provision for credit losses." If you need further granularity than that, you're going to have to reference another data source. $\endgroup$ – David Addison May 5 '17 at 21:40

It is calculated as:

sales = 
      REVENUEUSD        (Revenues (USD))
      ROIC              (Retun on Invested Capital)
      ROA               (Return on Average Assets)
      ROE               (Return on Average Equity)
