Share price: Updated at the end of every day. Includes information around dividend, splits and market cap. For market cap data, if a stock is not traded on a given day, values are carried forward. To see when the price data was last updated, go to the “Latest Share Price and Events” chart under the “Share Price & News” section where the last price would be mentioned. We are also currently looking at the possibility of providing live pricing (20 mins delayed) in the future.

Earnings: Updated every quarter. To see when earnings were last updated, hover your mouse over the latest earnings or revenue data points in the “Earnings and Revenue” chart under the “Past Performance” section.

Note- There might be delays in data updates in instances where companies report interim earnings or report unconsolidated financial statements etc as these are prone to errors and/or correction. Our data provider usually starts collecting and collating data after a company files official reports after which they get populated into our database. Learn more on how our financial data are collected through this link: How financial data are collected? 

Each of the above updates can also be accessed via a snapshot provided at the end of every company report in the Company Information section on our platform:
