I'm looking for the original ticker that the company IPO'd with in 1986 so I can see some historical stock data. Also, if any of you know sources for their revenue figures that would be great as well.

I was unable to find it when researching for my History series, but who knows, it could be out there and I just didn't look hard enough.

You need access to a source that contains information for delisted/defunct stocks. The free/consumer oriented sites tend not to have information for those kinds of securities. If you are near a library, especially a university library, they may subscribe to a service that includes the info, like Thomson ONE. If they don't have access to such a database, you might try the old fashioned approach of looking through some old printed/microfilmed copies of the Wall Street Journal or similar while you are at the library. If you are looking to be very complete, keep in mind that SGI's stock symbol changed a few times, like when it was traded on the OTC market.

Originally SGI, then SGID.pk (while on OTC market), then SGIC, now apperantly they're SGI again.

Ok, I did some more research and found out that the original ticker was SGID. I just can't find a free source to access the data. If any of you know of such a source, please let me know.

Hmm, OK, I've heard (and reported in my videos) that the original stock was SGI and SGID was only used (in the form of SGID.pk) while on the OTC market. Where did you find this info? I'm interested in having a look.

Thanks in advance

I used a free trial on a service called Global Financial Data. They said their ticker was SGID from 1986-2006 but I can't get any of the data without paying which I can't afford. :(
