I am trying to find the top gaining stocks in the 1980s based on the trailing 5-year return.
For example, I want to know the top performing stock for 1975-1980, 1976-1981, 1977-1982, etc. I don't have access to any advanced tools or financial software, nor is it practical to dig through every individual stock for those periods on Yahoo or Google finance.
Any thoughts on how I can shortcut this? I don't mind putting a little work into it, I'm trying trying to get some directions. I've search all over but could not find any clear solutions.
