Our reader “Tex” did some proof reading on the last spreadsheet we released over the weekend and found a dozen errors in pricing and/or dividends and interest on the list.
We have corrected those dozen errors and since the original ‘master list’ was the basis for the new spreadsheet we also corrected those items on the original sheet.
It should go without saying that these listings should be used as a ‘start’ of your research for potential buys/sells and pricing data at your brokerage firm should be considered the gold standard from which you operate. We have normally said we are 98% correct on these lists–maybe it is 99%, but 1 of the incorrect items we had made a difference of $4/share–a big difference.
Earlier in the year our reader “Russ” had found about a dozen errors on various lists and those items were all corrected.
Anyone proofreading our data is welcome–we need some of that high priced help.
We hope to add a “Error Reporting” area on the site soon so we can locate these types of messages–now we just stumble on them as there is so much commenting activity on all of the various threads we can’t keep up with them.
