There are several ways to get financial information of stocks in R. Here are a few options:

  1. Use the quantmod package: The quantmod package in R is a popular tool for financial analysis. It provides functions for downloading stock data from various sources, including Yahoo Finance and Google Finance. You can use the getFinancials function in quantmod to retrieve financial information such as balance sheets, income statements, and cash flow statements for a specific stock.
  2. Use the tidyquant package: The tidyquant package is another useful tool for financial analysis in R. It provides functions for downloading stock data and extracting financial information. You can use the tq_get function in tidyquant to retrieve financial information for a specific stock.
  3. Use APIs: Many financial data providers offer APIs that allow you to access financial information programmatically. For example, you can use the Alpha Vantage API or the IEX Cloud API to retrieve financial information for a specific stock in R.


Overall, using R packages like quantmod or tidyquant, or APIs from financial data providers can help you access and analyze financial information of stocks in R.
