  Mergent Company Ratios Procedure

Mergent Online is the preferred UST resource for finding company ratios.  Below is the procedure for pulling them from the database.

  1. Search for a public company within the industry.  (Use the "use code lookup" to the right of the screen if you like to drill down to an industry.  There is no keyword search for industry in Mergent.)
  2. Open the profile for this company (e.g., 2111 for Altria)
  3. Select the Financials tab.
  4. Select Ratios.
  5. View and download the available information.

Conference Call Transcripts

Conference calls are substantive conversations between company's upper management and investment banking analysts covering topics including:

  • Earnings announcements
  • Significant events (e.g. auditor changes, restatement of financials, change in management)
  • Changes in strategic or operational direction. 

These are recorded and transcribed, and made available from various sources, including company web sites. Companies don't always keep a backfile of these on their websites, so these sources can be a good alternative.
