Hi,
I have been trying to find reliable "Key Statistics" on companies. I have noticed that Yahoo Finance, Google Finance, www.cnbc.com, Value Line and others may display radically different values for "Return on Equity", "Current Ratio", "Price/Book", etc... for the exact same stock! Most of these sites don't show (or seem to show) when this data was collected. Which is the most up-to-date and reliable of the pay and free websites?
Thanks for any information you can provide!
