Stock Market Spreadsheets Navigation Guide

Some people are apparently having trouble navigating the site to find the information they are looking for. This is partly because, for some queries, Google does not rank my posts in the most useful sequence. So, my most relevant post may be the second or even third post returned. This post will help you understand what data is in each spreadsheet, and give you a SAMPLE of the posts that reference that data. A complete list of all stock market posts is included in the Stock Market Subject Index in the sidebar on the left.
