    I am starting my dissertation for my maths degree. I am going to perform time series analysis on share price of companies. I have the data for the share price but my supervisor is wanting me to have the returns for these companies. However, I can't find any returns data for the companies and was wondering if anyone could give me some help on where to get them, if I can? Or can I work them out from the share price?

    I am completely new to finance also, so if it's something really easy be gentle with me..
