Need Total Return Data - Help?
« on: April 08, 2016, 11:32:21 AM »
I am looking for a way to easily compute the TOTAL RETURN (dividends reinvested) of the US Total Stock Market Index and the International Total Stock Market Index (ex-US), from exactly 50 years ago TO DATE (like, actually through today's date, or yesterday's would be fine, but not 2010 or 2015, for example). Any resources?

If not, I will settle for S&P 500, DJIA, or another reasonable approximation of the index. I would strongly prefer the total market indices though, if possible. Thank you!

This is the closest thing I've found:

http://www.econ.yale.edu/~shiller/data.htm

Schiller is cool.

Edit: for those too lazy to click, the above links to an excel file that has 100+ years of price and dividend data, including adjustment for inflation if you want it.

This has the last 43 years. You could scrape it from running some "backtests".

The best i can do is for s&p and bills/bonds only...this may not help you since it is through 2015 only, but it may help somebody else.

MSCI data sets start in 1970 for price and TR indices, as well as PE, PB and Div yield.
I have these data sets for all developed and many emerging markets. You can easily get recent updates by the MSCI website.

If you are keen just PM me.

Cheers,
