Company Research Guide

This guide identifies sources for basic business and company information, but not specific resources for broad business disciplines such as accounting, marketing or management.

Current News & Articles

News about a company can come from news organizations (television, radio, print, internet) or from the company itself (press releases). If the company is publicly traded, a press release will almost always be duplicated via an SEC filing (form 8k, or "current report"). You can find company press releases on the company's website and 8k filings in any database where you find other SEC filings (such as annual or quarterly reports).
