Also in quantmod, there is `getFinancials` if you want financial statements

In qmao (https://r-forge.r-project.org/R/?group_id=1113), there's

`getEarnings` which will give you historic analyst estimates and
actual earnings numbers
`getEarningsCalendar` will show you all stocks (U.S. and non-U.S.)
that report earnings.  It supports "from" and "to" arguments.
`getDividendsCalendar` will show you all stocks that go Ex-Div today
(although it also supports from and to if you want to see historic
`getEconomicCalendar` shows the calendar of economic number releases
`getMergersCalendar` shows mergers/acquisitions
