Hello everybody,

can anyone advise me whether it is terribly wrong if you download your data from CRSP and COMPUSTAT using company CUSIP identifiers?

My data is for the period between 2010 - 2014.

I am new, please dont judge smile

Cheers,
Milica

It is probably not terribly wrong smile

You can do the match both ways and know for sure.

Cheers,
