Does anyone know of an API (or other programmable tool) capable of returning the IPO date for any US equity you feed into it? Though I thought this would be an easy find, the only integration I’ve come across that promises this data is a Bloomberg Windows desktop Excel plugin. Unfortunately I don’t have the money for something like Bloomberg, which is quite pricey.
I’ve checked the following other data sources with no luck:
- Yahoo Finance
Context: I’m trying to feed several thousand symbols into a loop that returns the IPO date for each symbol. I’m trying to filter out stocks that are younger than 10-15 years old.
