Add 10 Year Financial Statements History
10 years rather than 6 years history would be better.
As a first step, we’ve started adding the ability to screen over 10 year histories, for example:
1) EPS 10y CAGR %
2) Graham EPS 10y CAGR %
We’ll be adding the 10 yr Sales CAGR, the 10 yr dividend CAGR, the average PE ratio over 10 years, and other useful ratios, as requested, so let us know what specific 10 yr numbers you’d find most useful.
The CAGR is interesting and good to have, but I am as much interested in the actual figures in order to spot trends. For me, I would like to see any data that currently go back to 6 years in the past to go 10 years in the past. That especially includes the 'stock report' page.
In addition, it would be good to be able to see selected ratio for each year, again going back 10 years in time. Again, that's really useful to spot trends.

Hi, the Cyclically Adjusted PE (CAPE) Ratio would be great and the raw sales, profits, balance sheet and cash flow etc numbers
I would also like the 10 year raw account data BS/Income/Cash flow to be 10 yr to match that of morning star.. Also adding reserves to balance sheet cant hurt?
What would be even greater when technology permits maybe in 2020 is to be able to select multiple rows of one of the statements and create a persistent (dynamically updating when the data does ) combo chart as per the excel chart feature. :-)
I would like 10 years of raw cash flow data not just ratios. So just extend the cash flow statements you currently have to a 10 year time period. ADVFN are ahead of you in providing 10 year data but you could get ahead with this
Please add the price CAGR over say 5, 10 or even 20 years, as capital gain may be more important to an investor than anything else. An investor's profit or loss only involves two figures initially, the price paid, and the price sold, and when a long term holder the period held. Long term holders may need to see long term compound growth rates.

This is becoming more important, because with a lot of companies I need to be able to see how they performed pre-credit crunch, to get a flavour for how their earnings might rise once the economy eventually recovers.
Would be handy if the financial summary section had a sideways scroll on it, so that I could look back further than 2007.
It would be helpful to be able to use any of the items recorded in the financial statements for each stock. For example pretax income, total liabilities etc to use for ones individual ratios
