Public company filings are an important source of data and information for financial analysts. Knowing where to find this information is a critical first step in performing financial analysis and financial modeling.
This guide will outline the most common sources of public company filings.
The easiest way to find information on public companies is to perform a google search for their investor relations website. Companies will provide their most recent documents including their annual report, 10-K, quarterly reports, news releases, and corporate presentations.
EDGAR is the main database for public company filings in the United States and contains all documents companies are required to file. Read CFI’s guide to EDGAR to learn how to quickly research a company’s operations and financial information with EDGAR search tools.
