CRSP data only runs till 12/2014 and for some reason some HPR data is missing. You would nevertheless recommend to change my sample period in order to be able to get the HPR data from crsp?

hi Anton,

I don’t mean to influence your design; I just included a remark that - in general - CRSP is preferred over Yahoo finance. (Over time some posts get read by many people).

Losing some observations because of data availability is common for most (if not all) datasets.

best regards,

Joost
