HI,

anyone used compustat CSHR variable?

is it recording the number of shareholders?

if so, is it in millions or billions or other units?

thanks a lot,

hi R,

I couldn’t find any documentation on this. I suspect it is in millions. Maybe just look up a single company’s 10K and compare? 

best regards,

Joost
