GetDFPData is an academic project to provide free and unrestricted access to corporate datasets from B3, the Brazilian financial exchange. You can find more details about the project in its academic paper and CRAN page.
Here you'll be able to download information from the exchange with a web interface of CRAN package GetDFPData. Be aware the command line version offers far more functionality. The list of companies available in this web interface is restricted due to server limitations. The command line version has no restrictions.
Tab Information about companies offers several details about companies. This includes official names, current situation, current governance listing, available dates and much more. Notice that a search box is available at top right of screen. You can use it for finding details about a particular company/ticker.
Tab Download Data is the main application. In order to use it, select your companies, date range, type of output and press Get Data . After processing the data, a Download button should appear, with a link to an Excel or csv file.
The shiny interface is hosted in a DigitalOcean server that costs 10 USD per month. I just upgraded it from a 5 USD server so that the xlsx download is active. The project has no formal financial support and, so far, I've been paying it myself, with the support of my book sales. If you're using the shiny interface, please help us keeping the project alive.
All we need is to cover the costs of the server. If you can, please make a small (5/10/15 R$) donation.
The package is in constant development. If you have found an error or bug, please use Github to report it. I'll look into as soon as I can. If you don't have a github account, just drop me an email.
If you have used the data for scientific research, please cite the data source as:
