Keep in mind:

  • Only publicly traded companies need to provide financial information.
  • 2020 may be the most recent year of financial information.
  • Companies often have many subsidiaries, so make sure you look at the headquarter listing (which may be outside of the United States).
  • Company websites can be a great resource. Some even have whole sections devoted to investors with financials and product information.
  • Company website information may be biased or leave out controversial issues.
