Hints for Finding Company Information
As you are researching companies (both competitors and comparable organizations), please keep these things in mind when using these databases:
Public companies have a great deal of available information (SEC filings, annual reports, analyst reports, detailed financials).
Private companies will have very little that is available (especially financial).
For private companies, use news resources and M&A deal information via Zephyr (if applicable).
For private companies, if the data does not look right, do not trust it.
Researchers will often try to frame a search for internal company documents - this is virtually never successful.
International company information varies a great deal - use a critical eye here.
