Timing: Financial data as of May 31, 2017, including market capitalization and total return data. Data is for the fiscal year ending between April 2016 and March 2017 unless otherwise noted.
Growth rates: Restated data was used in the revenue and earnings-per-share growth rates. Compound growth rate is the type of growth rate presented. If fewer than four years of data was available then a growth rate could not be calculated and an NA (Not Available) is presented. If either the current year or the first year of the data used in the growth rate calculation was negative then a growth rate could not be calculated and an NC (Not Calculable) is presented.
Data: Information for this project is current 2016 fiscal-year data reported by each company.
Exchanges: Most companies are traded on the New York Stock Exchange or the Nasdaq. A handful of "pink sheets" companies were added to our database this year; their securities are traded over the counter.
