Publicly-traded companies must file financial statements with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the body that oversees all U.S. stock exchanges. The most useful is the 10-K, an official audited document that includes similar information from a prospectus or annual report, but provides additional updated financial information on corporate activities. Filings can be found at the SEC's Edgar Database.
These SEC filings are the basis for a company's annual report as well as of the financial statements found in our databases. Click here for a video tutorial on finding them.
EDGAR is the Securities & Exchange Commission's (SEC) public website for finding and retrieving required periodic company information filings.
