Can anyone explain negative revenue on quarterly reports? It is creating discontinuities when I compute growth rates.

Here is some example from my SQL:

    $\begingroup$ What database? What service provider? What line item? What does it’s dictionary say? $\endgroup$ – David Addison Jan 11 at 6:21
  • $\begingroup$ Intrinio. But now I think it might be a problem with their database. Thank you, I emailed them to ask. $\endgroup$ – Frank Jan 11 at 7:01
