Not sure if anyone here knows about this but I was told that the data at Yahoo Finance for historical stock prices is not good to use because for some reason it is data on very thinly traded markets. They may have been referring in particular to prices for Japanese stocks like Sony or Nintendo and perhaps that could be because these are traded on the Tokyo Stock Market but the data on Yahoo Finance is for NYSE http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=SNE

I can understand that but not for stocks like Coke or Ford. Does anyone know about this?
Also, if you know where I might get Sony prices for the Tokyo Stock Exchange or where I might go to look for it or a forum that might be helpful please let me know!

Thanks!

Some companies are traded on both, but are seperate shares.

Yahoo Finance will likely have the same historical data as Google Finance.

This is a quote for Sony on the Tokyo Exchange. You may need to copy/paste it into your browser if you don't see a full underlined link.

Also, if you're getting a CGI error, you may have to keep hitting refresh until it works.

Thanks. I got it now. They don't seem to have historical data as a data sheet (they display the chart but we cannot get the actual data it seems). Do you know any sources where I can get daily prices going back months or years?

Yahoo Finance has a Japan page:
http://finance.yahoo.co.jp/

Type in the company symbol and go to the "Time Series" (in English) tab.

Have you also tried contacting the company's Investor Relations dept?
