Introduction to Finding Annual and Quarterly Reports

Publicly traded companies are required to file periodic corporate reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These reports are for the benefit of investors so they can track the progress of companies in which they invest. After all, it’s the investors who own the company, and what good owner wouldn’t keep track of his or her business? As an educated investor, you should be familiar with corporate annual reports and other periodic filings and how to obtain the most current information on companies in which you invest or are planning to invest.
