Financial Resources

Financial Resources

These resources are intended more for public companies, because they are required to file reports with the US government. Reports that might be of interest to you are:


  • Annual Shareholder Report – a public company’s annual reports
  • 10-K Report – a public company’s quarterly report
  • Company Prospectus – the literature that has to be disclosed to all potential stockholders


We personally find the quarterly earnings calls very valuable. Industry and stock analysts pummel the CFO, CEO and other senior management with questions. Not every company streams them on their websites, but you can contact their Investor Relations department to find out.
