I’m interested in what calculators and resources are available that would allow me to make comparisons of investments I hypothetically would have conducted in the past.

I’m interested in what calculators and resources are available that would allow me to make comparisons of investments conducted in the past. For example, if I were to have bought 10,000 dollars worth of Vanguard 500 Index Fund admiral shares
in December 1995 and kept it till February 14, 2014, what would have been my return? Or what if I were to have purchased 100 shares of Coca-Cola stock
, 100 shares of Costco
and 100 shares of Wal-mart
on October 12, 1995 and sold it all on January 9, 2004, what would be the worth of that portfolio? I know one can do this with relatively simple financial calculations but is there something more streamlined for this sort of thing where I can input the values and get a reliable output.
A tool or database like this would preferably need to incorporate other tangibles into the portfolio outcome such as expense ratios, the cost of trading, any capital gains taxes that could be accrued and need to be paid. If the tool(s) doesn’t include these tangibles, that’s fine although one that does would be most welcome.
Additionally, I am also curious if there are programs (probably proprietary and expensive financial programs) that would allow me to research companies according to some given metrics such as NET REVENUE above 10 billion and a EPR above 15 but below 20 AND 10 years of net income ABOVE 10 billion but below 20 billion using information found in 10-k reports? Are there relatively user-friendly programs that would permit to make such a search?
For example: I'm looking for all the companies trading on the NYSE that have financial characteristics x, y, and z, plus dividends above some value for ten years. Ideally, I could input these metrics and filters to uncover these companies trading on Nasdaq or in NYSE.
Thanks and sorry for the long windedness of the question.
