Long time lurker and SMF user, thought I throw out a survey to gauge all your opinions, or facts. Out of all the financial website on the web, which financial info provider; Google, Yahoo, AdvFN, MorningStar, etc.; do you believe has the most complete and/or accurate financial information?

At the moment, my preferences are for two pay sites -- GuruFocus and
MorningStar. Yes, they do have free data, but if you want more than 5 years
of data, you need to subscribe. Both have a wide variety of data available.
MorningStar also has very nice CSV files for grabbing historical ratios and
financial statements. However, MorningStar has much of their data spread
around on hidden web pages, so they're not the easiest to access. And you
can get to the 1000-web page limit of the add-in quickly if you need to go
to 20 different web pages to get your data for a single stock.
International exposure on GuruFocus costs more again.

AdvFN used to be the pinnacle. Lots of data. All free. But in the last few
years, I've found it to be erratic and prone to errors. Sometimes not even
updating data for a company for several quarters. And they've had a "beta"
update hanging over them that whole time as well.

Google and Yahoo are not providers of data. They're just passing it along
from other providers. Much of Yahoo's data comes from MorningStar. Delayed.
However, Yahoo's CSV files for current quotes and historical quotes are not
matched by any other free service I'm aware of.

There's also Zacks and FinViz, although neither are major players. MSN has
pretty much backed out. They used to be a very good source of data, and had
an excellent stock screener. All gone. Reuter's is out there, but there
site is so erratic that it's not really usable.

But my perspective is U.S. stocks and ETFs. I don't do anything in foreign
markets, bonds, or mutual funds.
