In finance, Revenue is mainly composed of the total amount of money received by the company for the services and/or goods provided to its clients during a defined period of time. It can also include money received from other companies from interest, dividends and royalties.
Total revenue can be found at the very top of the income statement of the company. It is sometimes referred to as sales; in United Kingdom, revenue is called turnover and non-profit organizations talk about gross receipts to refer to revenue.

US Companies annual and quarterly revenues can be easily found on the Internet, the data is widely available. You can use for example the Valuation ratios for US stocks object to download the last revenue figure for all US stocks.

This item doesn't only get the latest revenues data; it gets the entire historical revenues data for the majority of companies that trade in the US Stock Market.
The data spans from the early 1999 to present and it is stored in an historical database called "fundamental". Revenue figures are stored in a field called "revenues".
It is very easy to display and use companies' revenue; here is the formula:
revenues = GetData("fundamental","revenues",LastData);

The "GetData" function instructs the trading software to get the Revenues time series from a database called "Fundamental". The "LastData" variable is used to tell the application to use the last available number if no value is found for a specific date.

Revenues data is expressed in millions of dollars. For example, the revenues of Agilent Technologies Inc (Ticker symbol: A) is equal to 1.271 Billion dollars as of June 2010.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
