EDGAR
(Electronic Data Gathering Analysis and Retrieval System): All publicly traded domestic companies use EDGAR to make the majority of thier filings which include: 10-K, 10-KSB, and annual report. The SEC makes this information available on the internet for FREE.
EdgarScan
(from PriceWaterhouseCoopers): EdgarScan pulls filings from the SEC's servers and parses them automatically to find key financial tables and normalize financials to a commom format that is comparable across companies. Go directly to specific sections of the filing, including the financial statements, footnotes, extracted financial data and computed ratios. A pre-set "Benchmarking Assistant" performs company comparisons. One nice feature is that data and charts can be downloaded easily and directly into Microsoft Excel. This is a FREE SERVICE.
