I am trying to get some research on the stocks in the S&P500.

The main thing I would like to get research on is, current and forward P/E and EV/EBIT ratios. Anything else would be a bonus.

If anybody has some ideas on where I could get such research would be good.

Thanks lizard
Not quite what I am looking for but still a good site. I will defiently be looking into it some more.

One of the things I am unsure about is how they come up with ratings.

Yahoo is ok but does not have much in the form of forward research.

Thanks Peat

Yahoo has some good stuff but not what I am looking for. It has current PE but is lacking forward PE, EV/EBIT and forward EV/EBIT data. I am also trying to get it in a list format so you can compare stocks rather than looking at one stock at a time.

I had a bit more of look around this site and found sort of what I am looking for http://www.4-traders.com/ALLEGIANT-TRAVEL-COMPANY-38694/financials/

If I could get this info in list format it would be sweet. Do they have an api? or data dump?

Yea I had a look at that but they don't have the drop down options that I want (PE, PE+1, EV/EBIT and EV/EBIT+1).

However it does look like it is a useful tool. Do you know how they derive their "investor rating" and "trader rating"? It looks good but I don't like how it over simplifies the rating of stocks.

Problem with any of these analyses is the GIGO effect. Big databases like these are very unlikely to be consistent in the quality and make-up of data. I haven't actually used this one - only aware of it - so I can't comment on accuracy.
