I don't see it in the fundamental data pdf or as an option in the rules. I am missing something or does anyone know of a calculation based on the available items?

Thanks in advance.

Subtracting dividends from net income is easy enough if that's what you're looking for, but based on the formula here you need "Beginning RE". So where's the beginning?

Thanks, Cone. Yeah, I think the beginning is from when a company was started so think I'm out of luck until it is a fundamental item.
