Which API Endpoint in TRKD / Datapoint provides most current MarketCap and SharesOutstanding Values?

For a given RIC/REPONO, which endpoint is most reliable in providing SharesOutstanding and/or MarketCap values. I tried "GetFundamentalReports_Request_1" for SharesOut. Also tried "GetRatiosAndStatistics_Request_1" in Fundamentals API family. They seem to have have different values for the same RIC/REPONO.

I would appreciate any suggestion on which one among these or any other endpoint that's more accurate and reliable for this data.

Thanks!

I have tested both endpoints with IBM.N and they return the same SharesOutstanding value.

<CoGeneralInfo xmlns="http://www.reuters.com/ns/2006/05/01/webservices/rkd/CompanyContentCommon_1">
...
<SharesOut Date="2018-09-30" TotalFloat="907879572.0">908793777.0</SharesOut>
...
</CoGeneralInfo>

Please let me know the RIC that returns the different SharesOut values.
